Behind the scenes

One of my favorite things about writing is that it allows me to travel. I always try to visit the specific locations I write about. It helps me visualize the world I’m creating better, so that my readers can get a full picture. Books that create mind movies are my favorite to read, so I always strive for that in my own writing.

My newest novel, The Stand-In Boyfriend, takes place partly in Tybee Island. I had the best time visiting the sleepy little Georgia Beach town and picking out locations to include in the book.

(The Tybee Island Social Club was our favorite restaurant!)

Even more fun than Tybee Island was my visit to South Carolina’s Palmetto Bluff resort. I modeled Bellemora after touring the incredible Palmetto Bluff grounds.

(JFK Jr. got married here!)

Make sure you check out The Stand-In Boyfriend to see even more cool additions from my trip to Tybee Island and Palmetto Bluff. There’s a wedding and plenty of drama as my main character has to choose between two guys—Mr. Right and Mr. Right now.


Happy Reading!

xoxo – Christina
