I was invited to join a multi-author project, or what we writers commonly call a MAP. The idea is to create a series or anthology around a common theme. In this case, The Reclusive Man series matches a woman who discovers a man hiding out or incognito as he strives to keep a secret, and she uncovers that secret. The idea is he's been wounded in the past, perhaps hurt by a woman, and can't face the world. But the love of a good woman gives him strength to try again.

 

 

 

I knew I wanted to set the story in Colorado. Somewhere bleak and dismal, or at least it would be in my story. Out on the open plains, with little water, few towns, and not many people. Kind of a last ditch place.

 

 

 

We'd recently traveled through southeastern Colorado, through La Junta, and I thought maybe this—or a town based on it—would be perfect. After some research, I discovered that La Junta— or Junction City—had been around for a long time, but hadn't really caught on. With few businesses, well, you know how it is. Hard to attract people, so no new businesses. Well, I learned that the town incorporated in May 1881. I figured there were likely people on both sides of that decision. Create some tension, perhaps. Then there was really an incident where a herd of antelope raced down Main Street, and so the founding folks decided to include an antelope on the town seal. Had to go into a book.

About Dianna’s Dilemma:

In 1881, a female journalist travels to La Junta, Colorado, for one story, but finds another even more intriguing. Will she break her promise and reveal a man in hiding—or will she stay true to her word—and her heart?

Question: If you had to choose a new name and identity, what would it be? I’ll go first. I’ve always wanted to work in a flower shop, and my new name would be Danielle Smith.
