The Beaver State

Oregon. Never been, but I want to go…real bad. The new novel I am writing splits time between Christmas Valley, Oregon and Hollywood. California, baby! I chose Oregon because from everything I have read, seen, or heard about the place, I love it there.

Christmas Valley has the sand dunes—a great place for my protagonist to practice her motorbike skills. Yes, she is well versed in motocross. Easy access to such a natural wonder, along with living on acres of ranch properly that has been in her family for years (and sadly teetering on foreclosure, oh no!) really gives her that small town feel that is an integral part of the character. But wait… then Hollywood (cha-ching) calls because they need a dirt-bike-chick stunt-double (say that three times quickly) for a famous and beautiful actress, well… you can only imagine!

It’s a start. Approx. 50K words so far. I’ll blog more about the novel in the near future, but I just have to say this story has really gotten my creative juices oozing and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I love writing it. In the meantime, here’s a picture of, ah, the person that writes this blog, ah, um… anyway… thanks for taking the time to stop by. Vroom-vroom-zoom!
