I’m a bit lusty in the travel department lately, not really able to get my mind off of the frolicking in France I’ll be doing this September. However, my family will report that wanderlust and I have been BFFing hard since I got my first National Geographic in the mail at age six.
Novel writing provides the perfect excuse for exotic explorations. Geist is set in a Prunières, France, deep in the Cévennes Mountains. However, it also explores the ancient magic of Moldavia. I loved weaving the two and building on the myth of each place.
I’ve got a crazy pile of novel concepts floating around and so many fictional landscapes to explore.
Here is my Top 10 Bucket List of settings I want to use in novels:
- Kiev, Ukraine.
2. El Jem, Tunisia
3. Ephesus, Turkey
4. Wroclaw, Poland
5. Xiaohe (Little River) Cemetery, China 小河墓地
6. The ancient city of Merv near Mary, Turkmenistan
7. Gobekli Tepe, Turkey
