By Kat Martin
Every summer we try to have some kind of adventure. Not the hearty kind we used to undertake--like riding horseback into the high country or camping in a tent for a week. But whatever we choose, summer is great time of year for a getaway.
This year, we took off from our home in Montana and drove to the Western Writers of America conference in Albuquerque. We drove only back roads, just meandering two lanes, that wound us through six different states.
We visited Kathleen and Michael Gear--the authors of the PEOPLE series that takes place 10,000 years ago. They live on a buffalo ranch in Wyoming. We went to Moab, the rock-climbers paradise, where one of our grandsons lives. Spectacular scenery, like no other place in the country.
We were in Santa Fe for a couple of days--oh, that town is so cool. Historic buildings and gorgeous art galleries, to say nothing of the incredible New Mexican food. Off the beaten path, we saw tiny Indian villages and churches that were hundreds of years old. If you’ve never done a cross country road trip, it’s really a worthwhile adventure.
Speaking of adventure, DEEP BLUE is being re-issued September 1st, with a gorgeous new hunky male on the cover. Conner Reese is a salvage boat captain who is hunting for sunken Spanish treasure off the coast of Jamaica. He isn’t happy to have lady reporter, Hope Sinclair, along for the ride. It’s high action all the way and of course plenty of hot romance. If you haven’t read DEEP BLUE and would enjoy a great adventure right at home, I hope you’ll give it a try.
So tell me--what is your favorite adventure? Love to hear from you. Have a great summer. Kat
