I took a trip home to see family this week. It’s funny how a place can get under your skin. Even though I haven’t been back in six, almost seven, years now, it felt like home. The airport, the freeway, the neighborhood where I used to own a house, even driving around, the Treasure Valley is my home.
Even though I’m considered a resident of a state and own a house 1600 miles away. My life is here.
Of course this got me thinking about writing. And how my characters are looking for that one elusive concept. Home. A place to feel safe, and loved, and needed.
Okay New Kid readers – here’s the conversation… If you write, do you have themes you return to, like home or redemption…And if you are a reader, what themes in books are you drawn to? What do you want in your books besides the happy ever after?
