Hola! Jolene Navarro checking in from the beautiful Texas Hill Country. My writing view today. I was in San Antonio, so I stopped off at Panera to get some writing time.
I love it when a writer submerges the reader into a new world and you get to experience it from the character’s viewpoint. Clear Water, Texas is a fictional town in the Texas Hill Country.
I see setting as another secondary character. Setting shapes the people who live there and when someone new moves in that creates new interactions.
In the summer of 2017, I spoke with my editor and she thought I should try moving out of the Hill Country and try a new setting. I knew I wanted to explore the ranch country along the Texas Coast.
So I did. I moved down the road and created another town nestled. This one on the Texas Coast. Port Del Mar.
I’ve had so much fun playing in my new world.
The new series: The Cowboys of Diamondback Ranch is being kicked off with the first story.
The Texan’s Secret Daughter is the story of Elijah De La Rosa and Jazmine Daniel.
The endless horizon and rolling waves make for a great backdrop for them to find their way back to love.
The hero owns several businesses along the coast and works with his sister that runs the family ranch.
My favorite was inspired by some friends that own a pirate ship. How fun is that, right? So my hero owns a pirate ship and it makes a great setting for kids birthday parties and wedding proposals. I love that my hero is a pirate cowboy.
What’s your favorite type of hero…certain careers that you love seeing?
