Soul Sisters Roam All Around The World
From the moment I started writing Soul Sisters, I knew that it would have to take place all across the world. The story starts in San Diego where twin sisters Ani and Dana live. I made the sisters live there because it is such a beautiful city. I haven’t been there personally but know people who have and they say it is so beautiful. It’s a city that was so perfect for these beautiful twin sisters to live in because it is just as beautiful as they are.
I also wrote about the sisters and their friends traveling to different locations like Switzerland, London and Dana is originally from Harlem New York. These are all locations I’ve never been to but have dreamed about. The power of the internet makes it so easy to learn more about anywhere in the world you want. I researched each location and decided to take the most beautiful settings from each location and put them into my book. One of my favorite countries to learn about was Spain, the architecture is so beautiful. Spain was important to learn about when the sisters go to request help from Diego they stay in his mini castle.
It was important for me to really think about if I was the reader what would I want to know about the setting? I’m big on food so almost every new location has a scene describing the sights and smells of that locations foods. People want to feel completely immersed in a book and like they’re going someplace maybe they’ve never been. Spain means many romantic things for Diego and Ani, it’s the place where they first met and had a beautiful time together. I wrote about the fun things they did there to pull readers into their intimate and beautiful world.
Setting is so important to every book and writing descriptions was one of my favorite things about writing Soul Sisters. I hope readers will feel like they’ve been to may new places after reading my book.
