Although fiction comes from the author’s imagination, for me it helps if my imagination can see a picture in my mind. The picture might be of a person (Australian fire fighter calendar), an event (a motorcycle rally), or a place (cities in Washington state.) Some of those pictures are from memories or as today – research. I got to play “what if.” The mission was to find a house to describe for Book # 3. I don’t have the resources or desire to buy a house in Issaquah, WA selling for 1.3 million dollars, but the one I found is prefect. Such fun.
