4. Tell us about the most exciting place you have ever visited?
I visited Scotland when I was in college. It was the first time I ever traveled anywhere on my own. I figured why start with an in-state road trip when you can fly internationally instead? Scotland was fantastic—I felt like I’d been there before when I got off the plane. I was staying with my best friend from high school, so I got to visit places off the main tourist tracks. I also went to Edinburgh on my own and saw Holyrood House and Edinburgh Castle. It was a great experience and I’d love to go back. I revisited it in a way when I wrote Where There’s a Will. I came up with that idea largely because I wanted to write about where I’d been in Scotland and show some of the love I felt for the place while I was there.
