Southern Arizona Wine Country
When I'm not busy writing books, I'm also a video geek. I've been doing photography since the age of nine, and, with new digital technology, I'm now getting into video. With help and inspiration from my good friend and fellow video geek, Rob Resetar, I've learned a lot about how to produce videos from the book trailers he's created for me.
I'm also willing to bet that many of you probably don't know that there are some wonderful wineries in southern Arizona. I certainly didn't know about them until after I moved to Tucson. They're down near the Mexican border in a beautiful part of the state. From time to time I'll pack a lunch and spend a day down there, and I also included it as one of the locations in my novel, The Betrayal.
I recently produced a little video montage about our local wine country, and Sonoita Vineyards, one of the featured wineries, was the real life inspiration for McPherson Vineyards, where Kyle hides Emily to save her from a hitman.
