Many of you have asked why the template for my blog is Arizona scenery. After all, I am a California girl, born and raised. Okay, actually nobody asked about the template. Why don't you people ask about my template?? Sorry, I'm known to whine on occasion. Well, since I have now forced you to ask yourself, I will now proceed to tell you. This blog is a tribute to my books and my books, well part of my books, take place in the coolest little town in Arizona. Before I started writing my first book I had never even been to Arizona (unless you count the little corner you have to drive through on the way to Utah). So, I did a lot of internet research, viewed a lot of pics and started writing. Since writing, I went to visit and let me tell you that pictures don't do Arizona justice. In my personal, completely unbiased, opinion, Arizona is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my life. Sure, I've never been anywhere before but...no, I'm just kidding, I've been lots of places and the landscape in Arizona is amazing. Have you ever seen a cactus before? How about hundreds of them stretched out for miles along red, rocky hills? Blue skies, only interrupted by an occasional cloud. And then, during the right season, when the clouds do decide to roll in, they assist in creating the most amazing sunsets in the world. Sunsets where the whole sky is on fire. My good friend, Nicki, sent me a picture of an Arizona sunset and I'm going to add it to my slideshow so that you can see what I'm talking about. So, for those of you who asked (none of you) about my template, that explains it.
