I Finally finished Gabe’s book!
Seriously, this has been a very long time coming. I started writing the Grime series and then got caught up with the My Cowboy Heart series. But I always had in the back of my mind that Gabe and Dave needed their story told. I simply needed the time to tell it.
I honestly don’t feel finished with the Grimeverse yet. There may be more to follow. It feels good to write a book that takes place in my hometown, even though I don’t actually live there, anymore. I’m close enough. My dentist is still there, all my friends. There’s an advantage to setting a book where you know all the sights, sounds, smells…well. Maybe the smell thing isn’t an advantage when you’re writing a book about crime scene cleanup. I loved living in the “OC” when I did, and I miss it. Especially being ten minutes away from Disneyland.
Speaking of which, I have never written a book about Disneyland. Hm… That is a thing I could do, even if only to create characters who visit Disneyland together. When you live as close as I do, Disneyland plays an important part of your life. You perform there if you’re in the orchestra, as my kids did. Often, adolescent pre-daters go there in groups. I had my first date at Disneyland, as well as first dates with several boyfriends. I probably got my first real kiss on the Haunted Mansion ride. I’ve lost my car in the parking lot, lost my temper in lines. I breastfed my babies in the Carnation “Mother” room. (Which is both comfortable and air conditioned!!!)
So maybe my next visit with the Grimesters will be a Valentine’s Day short, including a trip to Disneyland, free to all my fans.
I invite you to Stay Tuned…
