I love traveling and meeting new people. Story ideas jump out at every turn. I visited Nassau, The Bahamas, in December 2011. After a lot of library and online research, I wanted to get a real life feel for the settings. It's been 150 years since the American Civil War, but some things remain the same. Nassau is still low lying with a gentle uphill rise. The sky and water are gorgeous blues and turquoise. Unusual trees and vegetation have their own distinct fragrances, and the Caribbean breeze is so balmy and pleasant. Next I had to see and smell the ocean and feel the air as Beau and C.C. might have experienced them when they made their run to Wilmington, North Carolina. As you readThe Trouble With Misbehaving, I hope these pictures help you imagine along with me what this part of the world might have been like in 1864.
