  Images of places that have been inspiring.  
     
 

 
     
  UNION, LOUISIANA  
  Inspiration for Superflare: The Fortunate Ones   
     
  Inspiration: This place is where I grew up and where my deep seated love of the country way of life was born. Union, a village too small to have its own post office, sits nestled inside a curve of the Mississippi River, downriver from the Sunshine Bridge and upstream from Zen-Noh Grain elevator and Hymel's Seafood Restaurant. The green expanse you see there are the sugarcane fields where I spent hour upon hour riding horseback, first on my pony and then on my Quarter Horses as a kid. A piece of my heart will always reside in Union.
 
     
  Superflare: The Fortunate Ones: The life one lives here is reflected in the personalities of all of the principal characters other than Tyler. I could also picture riding a horse on dirt roads that were surrounded by a crop that is above my head.  
     
  The Jack Butler series: Jack lives on a sprawling estate, Ver Largo, which means long view, on the banks for the Mississippi River in St. James Parish.  
     
 

 
     
  MATURE PECAN TREES IN A PASTURE  
  Inspiration for Superflare: The Fortunate Ones   
     
  Book: Superflare: The Fortunate Ones  
     
  Inspiration: In the book, Abby is with Rebecca looking out of the kitchen window and she sees a mature pecan grove with the herd of cattle at Papaw's draft horses in it. I also picture this setting in my head when Colt rides into and out of the woods on a wagon loaded with corn. The gravel road that leads to the wooden bridge can barely be seen on the left in the background of this picture.  
     
 

 
     
  STATELY OLD FARMHOUSE  
  Inspiration for Superflare: The Fortunate Ones   
     
  Book: Superflare: The Fortunate Ones and others  
     
  Inspiration: This is a house I'm familiar with and I used it for the family's farmhouse. It was built in the early 1890's.  
     
 

 
     
  DOMINO SHACK  
  Inspiration for Superflare: The Fortunate Ones   
     
  Book: Superflare: The Fortunate Ones  
     
  Inspiration: This adorable little building was my inspiration for the Domino Shack, although I took a lot of liberty with this location, including setting it in Louisiana. My friends, who are pictured, and I happened upon it while on a road trip. We dropped in and spent an hour there being taught how to properly play dominoes by a few kind and humorous retirees. It's a good memory for all of us.  
     
 

 
     
  BAMBOO LINED DRIVEWAY  
  Inspiration for Superflare: The Fortunate Ones   
     
  Book: Superflare: The Fortunate Ones  
     
  Inspiration: I used the bamboo along Trevor Whitson's driveway as a landmark a few times to help you know where you were on Richmond Road. This stand of bamboo that lines this little driveway, the one I pictured in my head, is forty feet tall.
