In my newest creation, A sparkle of Silver, my character Amber Warren, thrives on finding, refurbishing, and staging pieces for her antique store that is owned by her parents and has been in the family for a few generations. She brings sparkle to the practical as well as obscure pieces.
Many things goes into the research of a story and location is one to consider. Amber's home is attached to the warehouse/store. The storefront is located on the west side of Broadway in Denver Colorado in an area referred to as Antique row.
Her hero, Jesse Nelson has his own landscaping and design business. One of the projects he designed and created in a client's backyard was a free flowing shaped pool with rock edges and upper and lower waterfalls. I hope the description I gave in the story takes you to an amazing illusion of cool waters in shade.
These ideas and more are in my up-coming novella, A Sparkle of Silver which should be available in the spring of 2018. On the pages you will discover the reason for the title. A special piece of silver takes her to someplace unexpected.
