    Thought-provoking stuff, thank you. I usually have a location in my head, but I’m not sure I’m describing it sufficiently for it to become a character in its own right. I shall work on this.

    Thank you. I like to travel and fall in love with many locations and tend to focus on the locations rather than the characters.. I am looking forward to reading your book set in Cuba. I have been to Cuba on several times on mission trips and have spoken at the hospital to various groups of women. Thanks again for the information.

    Paula, If you’ve done mission work, you might like my descriptions and action in Bolivia in Ignore the Pain. It’s written from the point of view of a public health worker doing consulting in La Paz and Potosi. And yes, I’ve done that type of consulting in third world countries.

    Julia, I’m glad I made you think.

    I need to focus more on settings.
