|SOUTH TEXAS RANCHLAND|
As authors, we are privileged to create worlds where we might like to live, while in reality we never would. All my imagined "worlds" are earthly ones, unlike someone who creates a science fiction place, or a paranormal realm, or one inhabited by other-worldly creatures--werewolves, vampires, and shape shifters.
For me, the most fun kind of envisioned world is a big ranch, set in some reasonably pleasant area in Texas where I might enjoy living.
In my last "Texas" book, Texas True, the young heroine, True Leigh Cameron, marries a man who is almost a foreigner--Sam Deleon, the older disinherited son of a Spanish matriarch who needs him to marry and have a son so that he might regain the huge ranch that was willed to the worthless younger son.
Through many trials and tribulations, heartbreak and sadness, Sam and True come to a kind of agreement. Without giving away the plot, Sam visits the South Texas ranch to determine what and how much of the Deleon fortune he can salvage from what his brother has squandered.
In order to place my hero and heroine in a happy place of their own, I have Sam camping out on a bluff overlooking a river and many acres of prime pasture. This place is on the far side of the ranch from the old, run-down original ranch house.
|THE DREAM HOUSE|
He sleeps by the camp-fire and has a dream about a beautiful house on the bluff.
There is a gazebo to the side, closer to the edge, for lovers and dreamers to sit close , sip some wine...
...and watch a beautiful Texas sunset.
TEXAS TRUE is one of the Cameron Sisters novels, that of the younger daughter.
TEXAS PROMISE is also one of the Cameron Sisters novels, that of the younger daughter.
