The fifth state on my fabulous writing road trip was VIRGINIA!
My first stop was with the beautiful Maria, her husband Gary, as well as their son and his family (their granddaughter was just awesome). They took me to visit the Norfolk Naval Base. It was my first time being on a real military base and since I write a lot of military and former military characters…I so appreciated the opportunity. Their stories kept me riveted the entire time.
We had great conversations, ate good food, and I loved my time with them.
From there, I drove over to have dinner with Gayle. I was just blown away by how lovely she was and adored her stories about her kids (who need to go into stories).
