Real Life Meets

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketOne of the very cool things about being an author is when someone looks you up and you meet in real life.

I had a lovely time with a lady who enjoys my work and is in town. She works for the foundation of my alma mater, Indiana University, and we sat and ate and chatted about all sorts of topics. Apparently it took her a while to research that I was an alum of Indiana U, since I never said anything about it here or on my website.

AND she brought all her books. How flattering!

So I gave her an ARC of Heart Dance and Sorceress of Faith (since Marian is somewhat of an academic).

But, you know, things stick with you. Some of the interior scenes in the Marshalls' castle (the Marshalls' Dining room and council chamber) are based on places at I.U., and some of the lushness of the land, I think. A very beautiful place, Bloomington, IN. I need to go back.

May you be pleasantly surprised with your writing today.
