Why are your books set in Texas?
Because I live and grew up here and am therefore quite familiar with it; but also because it makes a great setting for novels. I love the outdoors (lakes, cedar-covered hills, natural springs, scrub desert), the indoors (hip eateries, cool clubs, colleges, funky stores), and the terrific mix of people (from rock musicians to well-dressed business types to peace-loving hippies to rodeo stars). Not everything I write will be set in Texas. It’s just that, so far, I couldn’t have imagined a better place for my stories.
