When I write a book, I need a lot of visuals to help me in the process, including ideas for characters.
Here are the visuals I used for inspiration while I was working on Aundy – book 1 of the my new Pendleton Petticoats series.
Josh Turner is exactly how I pictured Garrett Nash, friendly, laid-back, great smile and hair – all around great guy (and cute, too).
Bruce Boxleitner made a great J.B. Nash, Garrett’s dad.
Logan Lerman seemed like a great choice for Nikola Zorian Gandiaga, the shepherd boy who keeps watch over Aundy’s sheep.
And for Li Hong – actor Jet Li was a fantastic fit.
Bell, Aundy’s horse, is a Kiger Mustang from southeastern Oregon. She doesn’t like men, but quickly decides Aundy is a good friend.
This is Bob, Nikola’s Border Collie and assistant sheepherder. He’s a loyal and faithful friend.
This photo of a kitchen from the 1890s helped me out on some details about Aundy’s kitchen.
