Which places have provided you with story inspiration? #UpbeatAuthors.

Today at #UpbeatAuthors, we’re discussing the places that have given us inspiration for stories.

Setting has always been a huge source of inspiration for me. Nature, in particular, is a bountiful source. I could hike through the woods over and over and always find new nuances. There is something mystical about being in a place “untouched” by humanity. As Lord Byron said in Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, “I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” In my case, this love inspired my Gemini Island Shifters series.

However, there have been other settings that have inspired me. The beach, whether it has been a hot stretch of sand on Mexico’s Mayan Riviera or the cold Orkney shores, has provided me with starting points for both my Orkney Selkies series and my stand alone romance Sunburn.

Sometimes inspiration finds me within the walls of a building. Houses provide us with shelter but in the imaginations of a writer, a house can become the setting of a star-crossed romance. Different sorts of homes have inspired Night Lover and also my upcoming Handymen series.

And as you may have noticed, I have a thing for hotels. They crop up a lot in my books and I don’t think it’s a coincidence. I spent many years working for the Toronto Convention and Visitors Association, so I love writing about hotels. Thus, Vice in my Vegas Sins series, the Ursa Resort in the Gemini Island Shifters series, and Apollo’s resort in Sunburn. Write what you know, they say.

You can find all my books here.

DEAD END ROAD by Lori Whitwam is on sale for 99 cents!
A writer, a musician, an unexpected love…and a killer who wants to destroy it all.
Reclusive author Abby Delaney never dreamed she’d meet her rock-n-roll fantasy Seth Caldwell in her quaint, lakeside town…or that his love might be deadly.
Seth is weary of road trips, endless parties, and dead-end relationships, but what choice does he have? Songwriting and performing are all he knows. Then he meets Abby and finally finds a heart he can’t stand to break.
But forget small-town tranquility. An attempt is made on Seth’s life, and another mysterious death hits eerily close to home.
Everyone’s a suspect, he’s taunted with ominous messages, and it’s only a matter of time until the killer finds his mark.
What if the only way to keep Abby safe is to do the one thing she can never forgive—walk away?
As the noose tightens, one thing becomes clear…
If the killer isn’t found soon, Seth and Abby will take their love to the grave.
