A LITTLE TEXAS INSPIRATION

By: Angi Morgan

Congratulations to "Lisa Marie B.", the winner in Angi's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Male On Monday posts? Why not? And while we’re at it…let’s take in a cowboy…or two or three. Cowboy inspiration pictures keep me going from book to book. I rarely write a hero who rides a horse, but they certainly are great inspiration. 

I AM AN ABS GIRL.

Yep, give me a set of nicely tanned abs and I’m in heaven. So I find an inspiring set of abs to use as my laptop backdrop. I tile the picture and stare at it throughout the writing of the book. And let’s not forget the screensavers…

My Garrison Travis inspiration is Dror Okavi. He’s a personal trainer (at least I think he is from his website). I didn’t need to know that while writing. I just stared at his picture and imagined him riding a motorcycle for BULLETPROOF BADGE.  

The Jesse Ryder inspiration is from Rob Lang Images on Pinterest. He’s got lots of yummy cowboy pics for every season! I love this shot with the barbwire fence in the background. The openness of the picture was perfect for SHOTGUN JUSTICE which takes place in the panhandle of Texas.   

Anthony Catanzaro calls himself the Superman of personal fitness. I fell in love with this tan. Goodness. This picture was the Bryce Johnson inspiration for GUNSLINGER. Ironically, Bryce is sunburned during the story. 


My Josh Parker inspiration had two images. I couldn’t discover who this model is. I loved the aviator shades with the hat!! My second image is of a REAL dad taken by a friend in a Walmart parking lot. We stalked him through the store and asked his wife’s permission to take the photo. I cropped his baby girl out, but my hero for HARD CORE LAW is the father of twins. There was something about the way this giant man took care of his baby while his wife shopped that struck a chord with me. 

I hope you find your own inspiration…even at Walmart!

  1. I agree with you, Angi, that I love looking at a great set of abs. The models and trainers pics are always great to look at without their shirts.

  9. I like cowboys without a shirt but every time I see a picture like that I think how unrealistic it is because cowboys just don't work without shirts.
