However, if someone were to ask me that question today, I'd be able to wholeheartedly tell them exactly where the idea for my next trilogy or series came from. I am so excited, I can barely wait to get started but until I finish my current work in progress (book 5 in my Superromance Templeton Cove series), I have to be happy with just jotting down a few notes.
Well, after a recent overnight visit to Ireland…for afternoon tea with Nora Roberts, no less, I know I have to set a trilogy or series at Ashford Castle where my husband and I stayed. I will, of course, make the castle fictional…maybe even change its Irish location, but what a place! Pure, unadulterated luxury where royalty and visiting celebrities have been known to stay.
While we were there, the majority of the guests were from the States which made my job of writing the stories for the US market all the better. Ireland is romantic, magical and full of so many different characters, it is a canvas waiting to be painted in words.
Here are a few of the pictures of the castle…and of course, me and Nora! Keep tuned for my new series whenever I get the time to write it, ha ha!
What about you? What are your favorite locations that you've visited and have ended up being the setting for a Superromance? Or readers, what are some of your favorite global settings for our stories?
