My Inspiration Files

I always love hearing where the inspiration for certain stories comes from. Yesterday I talked about Glenncailty Castle, my upcoming contemporary romance novel. When talking about setting a book Ireland there are a lot of possibilities. There are certainly plenty of paranormal options, and there are plenty of settings–the bustling streets of Ireland, the beautiful, mysterious southern counties, the rocky mystery of the north.

I’ll pretend someone asked me why I chose a haunted castle as the focus of The Harp and the Fiddle. The easiest way to explain it is to show you.

All these are placed my husband took me. Many of them are close to his home out in the country. They’re not artistically falling down, they’re actually falling down. As I looked at the images I couldn’t help by wonder what ghosts might haunt the place.

The not-do-falling down ones are from a remodeled abbey where we thought about getting married.
