Continuing the Adventure

Day One is the continuation of Elle’s story. She finds herself stuck in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the California Central Valley. She is alone again, and I started the book as if it were the next chapter in the previous book. I wanted readers to jump right in with Elle, feeling what she was feeling, and seeing what she was seeing.

I also wanted to explore a part of California that I haven’t ventured to yet in any of my novels – the desert! What’s amazing about the state that I live in is that you can visit the desert, the city, the ocean, the valley, the mountains and the cold, chilly harbors of Northern California without ever leaving the state. There are so many environments. It’s the perfect place to tell a story!

I had Elle’s story firmly in my mind from beginning to end when I started writing the trilogy, so writing three books has been like writing one big one for me. I know exactly where Elle is going, and I know exactly what is going to happen…I just can’t share it all with you guys at one time! I can’t wait for you to check out this next short installment of Elle’s adventure in Day One.
