I got the idea for Take Me Home while on a road trip out west. My youngest daughter was finishing school in Denver and working at Yellowstone National Park for the summer so my husband and I drove her out there.
I fell in love with Eastern Idaho near Henry's Fork, just west of Yellowstone. The rolling potato fields set agains the backdrop of the Tetons were beautiful. We stayed in a fishing lodge and a very flirtatious man from New Zealand was in the room next to us. A chapter popped into my head. It didn't end up being the first chapter but it got the book rolling.
