Continuing the discussion about my novella Blue Ridge Mountain Escape let me tell you how I came up with the idea to explain the reason my heroine rented a cabin for the week  in the mountains.

I knew she needed to be alone, no car, no phone, no Wi-Fi, no distractions. Why? She’s a writer. Hmmm, you can guess how I decided on that, can’t you? She’s on a deadline and can’t afford to have any distractions. What better place than a cabin in the woods?

Now I need to find a hero who is also in the mountains alone, but obviously for a different reason. Enter the hero, Trevor Montgomery, an Army ranger recently returned from the Middle East. He needs time to decompress and decide whether to stay in the Army or move on to another career. My husband spent twenty years in the Army and I know several men and women who struggle with what direction to take following a deployment. Introspection is key to the right decision.

Find out what brings them together next week when I give you more insight.
