We’ve been lucky enough to travel so some of the places I’ve set books including Hawaii, London, Madrid, and New York. I’ve set more than one book in Whistler, BC, but I haven’t been there since I was very young.
Part of the problem is that I pick a location on a whim as I start to write. Then I start to research it and add it to our bucket list because I’m so enamoured. I really should plan ahead so we can visit before I start writing.
