Research Trip in the planning!!!

So every year in November I take a trip to Illinois to see my Mom for a few days.  Well over the years she has been my biggest fan and supporter of my writing, granted she’s never read a thing I’ve written she’s always encouraging me and helping me with research. 

Well this November when I go for my visit we have a lot of research to do.  Since my paranormal erotica romance is set along Interstate 80, we plan to make a few stops and take photos of the I80 and the interstate 180 interchange, its an off ramp to a very short stretch of interstate, only about 5 miles it was built 30+ years ago for a steel mill that was in the area. I think it was called JPL Steel, but don’t quote me its been a long time since I was in that area.  This interchange has alot of wooded land and it makes the perfect spot for my first crime scene where our Heroine Gwen Davis(yes I changed her name) and Hero Drake Blackburn meet.  The attraction these two feel on first meeting each other is instantaneous, which makes keeping things professional a bit of a challenge.    

After our photo session there its off to a little known gun shop in Peru IL called, “Boomers and Blasters”  Yes that is the name I plan to get photos of this shop as well.  this is also where Gwen gets her “special” weapons.  Then the two of us will journey out to Walcott IA.  Now your thinking whats out there, well it is the home of the World’s Largest Truck Stop.  There will be lots for us to see there and photograph. 

Plus I’m also hoping to do a bit of target shooting myself, why should my Heroine have all the fun.  I’m really hoping to be able to get my hands on “The Judge” by Tauras, that is one gun I really want to fire.  One of those could do some nasty damage to a werewolf hybred serial killer…Till next time, I’m gonna be in my writing cave for awhile plotting this book as well as a few others.
