DALLAS at NIGHT

With: Angi Morgan

Congratulations to "Colleen C.", the winner in Angi's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

The Omni Hotel in Downtown Dallas is a pretty rainbow of colors. But every time I see it, my mind shoots back to when I wrote DANGEROUS MEMORIES and how that rainbow effect played a major part in the ending of the story.

WHAT DOES NEON AGAINST A BLACK SKY REPRESENT TO YOU?  

This past week, I showed off a little of Dallas to a few friends. The Pegasus statue reminds me of my childhood and visiting my grandmother. It proudly stood at the top of the an oil building for 65 years. My siblings and I would try to be the first to spot it as we drove through Dallas.


After dropping friends off at the Hyatt, I took my camera on a search from inspiration. My imagination started racing. I could see a heroine running, trying to hide, someone chasing, someone finding. I don’t know what story this is yet…but I like it.


DO THE PICTURES INSPIRE YOU?  
I hope to be heading to a new location sometime this week. I’ve never been to the Grasslands in the northwest corner of the panhandle. Dalhart is the location of my second book in my 2016 Texas Rangers series.

  1. Favorite icon? Don't think I had one. The Beatles were introduced then. Lots of cowboy shows on TV. John F. Kennedy was President for a couple of years. I would love to win The Craftsman. Enjoy the Intrigues. debbiemac73 AT yahoo DOT com.

    2. Good Luck Debbie. I think the Beatles were a huge icon in the 60's.

      I can remember walking to Jack-in-the-Box...but there weren't any McDonald's in my neck of the woods then...so no Golden Arches.
