Spotlighted by Connie Flynn
Denise and her husband Ed live on a farm in Cornville (yes, Cornville), Arizona, where they plant veggies, milk cows and have an Easter egg hunt every day.
So, Denise, what one question has no one asked you about your writing that you wish they would?
Although I admit I did fall in love with England after my first visit. I’ve since had the opportunity to navigate the roundabouts (whoops, missed the turn off, going around again for another try) from Cornwall to Scotland, Northumberland to Essex. I once accidentally drove through the bus station in Canterbury of all places! I enjoy their “M” ways, their freeways, because the Fast Lane is just that, fast. I’ve been during all four seasons, visited ancient sites like Avebury, Hadrian’s Wall and Offa’s Dyke, and much younger places–if places a little less than a thousand years old can be considered younger–like Westminster Abbey, or Castle Rising, which was the model for my Graistan Castle. I’ve even visited the real Downton Abbey.
All of this helps when I need to set a scene. I can close my eyes and hear the gurgling stream at the base of White Castle and how the Yellow Pipe nodded and shifted in the water, or see the hunting hawk hovering arm’s reach above me as a roaring, damp wind tore at both of us before sweeping across the stark, heather-covered hills on the Scottish border.
Below you can see a collection of my books that resulted from this very memorable trips.
