What inspired you to write your book?
I discovered that forlorn houses particularly ones with romantic architectural elements stir my imagination. They speak to me, inspire me.
Or is it simply my imagination…
Here is a short sample from the book:
It was a cool, foggy night typical of the Northern California coastline and he was searching in dismal visibility for a bed and breakfast that promised to be an identical copy of a French Chateau in the Loire Valley. He was from Nebraska, and having never left the United States, it interested him.
He was tall, strong, and handsome with the chiseled jaw and commonsense manners of a Midwesterner. Having lived in the same proximity his entire life, he yearned for something different; a different style of architecture, different foods, and of course an entirely different kind woman. He had left behind a failed marriage and was still reeling from the grind.
Deep in thought and driving a little too fast northbound on Highway 101, his body jerked when his headlights reflected off a faded green sign with black lettering, Chateau Daphne. He screeched to navigate a sharp left onto a long and narrow, winding road that led to a jagged coastline barely visible through the primordial forest.
