which also doubles as a method to show off more pictures.
I mentioned a little while ago that Madrid inspired me. Many of the places I have visited have. Andalusia gave me much of the architecture of River Holt, which Mdina in Malta still epitomises Ithian in my mind, despite the fact it isn’t a port like Klathport. The forest walks nearby in Wicklow could easily be those in Soul Fire and the forests of the realm in my WIP May Queen. And of course Moy Tura Echoes (another infamous WIP) is mainly set in Dublin.
So I thought you might like to see the latest photos that have the plotbunnies leaping around the place. This is Kilruddery House and Gardens in Bray, Co. Wicklow.
And just for fun, a link to Anna Netrebko singing, for background music.
