Perhaps you've noted my new theme. I love Arizona. I will always love Arizona. Some of my very favorite people live there (and not all of them are fictional). I thought, though, since I am 33,000 words into my new book that I needed to display some of my inspiration (live in the moment).
The beautiful tree (adorning the top of my blog), General Sherman, resides in the gorgeous Sequoia National Park, which is the setting for my new book. This tree is the largest in the world, standing at about 275 feet tall. The base of It's trunk has an impressive circumference of 109 feet. It is truly an amazing sight.
Whereas Arizona is a love I discovered after starting my series, this park is something I have always loved. You see, I grew up (and still live) sandwiched between two wonders of nature--Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings. Both parks are about an hour from my house. It's hard not to be inspired when visiting these gorgeous landmarks.
