What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always been interested in anything Italian, then as I was researching for another book, several pictures of the Tuscan countryside came up. My mind went into writer mode. I decided not to go the usual vineyard route and go the olive grove route, then I never looked back until Tuscany was a reality.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Lana, the leading lady is from my home state of Georgia and I wrote her to somewhat mirror myself and how I'd react to the situation she's put in. And Romeo, well, he had to be a handsome, hot headed Italian. Together they were like oil and water, but then…
That night, after her soak in the tub, Lana stood in the French doors to Mama Leona’s old room, watching the moon rise over the fields. With all she’d learned over the last twenty-four hours her head was spinning. This place was beautiful and felt magical. Tomorrow, she’d bury her grandmother and start a new life. But what would that life hold? Leaning her head against the door she thought about Romeo and his change in attitude since their arrival. Maybe they could become friends. She pulled out the journal and opened it up, only to shut it quickly. Maybe after the funeral she’d be able to grasp what this leather-bound book held, but not tonight. The past could wait another day. For now, she wanted to climb into the large four-poster bed, with cream sheer curtains and slip back into the dream from earlier. As she drifted off to sleep she wondered if she’d find true love in Tuscany or was that just her grandmother’s wishful, romantic way of thinking?
Romeo stood under the tree just beyond the house, watching Lana. This woman was like nothing he’d ever seen. The moonlight glistened off her blond hair as she stood gazing out at the night sky. For some reason, his heart skipped a beat at just the sight. She made him feel out of sorts, and it wasn’t a feeling he liked. Growling in frustration, he turned and headed toward the stables. A moonlit ride was just what he needed.
