Many of you know that a year ago I packed my belongings and moved to a tiny village in Spain. I was raised in the city, but my father is from this part of Spain and I always loved coming in the summers while growing up. It’s like I got the best of both worlds—city and small-town experiences. So while I spent most of my time in a city, I always craved living in the mountains somewhere, and here I am. Can I get a whoop, whoop?
I tend to write small-town romances for this reason. The gossip, the nosy neighbors, where everyone knows everyone (whether you love it or hate it). It creates a sense of community you don’t get everywhere, and although sometimes it’s a huge eye-roll, I love living in a place like this. Small towns are definitely not boring. There is always something going on and some mischief to participate in.
In Write You a Love Song, Ainsley is new to Everton, a fictional small town in Wyoming. Her sense of adventure and need for change led her there, but she struggles with some experiences that are personal to my own. It’s not easy being the new girl in town (and for me, even when I know some of the people). However, little by little, you become a part of this community.
I mean, am I the only one who watches a Hallmark movie and fantasizes about moving to a small town and finding love? Tell me I’m not alone! A tall, handsome man that works with his hands and… Okay, I’m getting off topic.
Unfortunately, that has not been the case for me. Whomp, whomp, whomp. LOL I’m holding on to hope, though!
One the bright side of my non-flourishing love life, I have traveled a bit since I’ve been here and loved every second. AND I get to write about all the wonderful love stories and romances we love and dream about (that’s me, dreaming about a book boyfriend coming off the pages of a book and sweeping me away. Totally normal, right?).
Would you like to live in a small town? If you already do, what’s your favorite thing about it? Tell me in the comments! I’d love to know!
P.S. This is the closest to romance I’ve gotten here.
LOL Only kidding! This is my terrible sense of humor coming to light.
