Summer Adventure 2| Kat Martin

Summer Adventure

Every summer my husband and I try to have some kind of adventure.  Not the hearty kind we used to undertake–like riding horseback into the high Sierras or tent camping for a week in Montana.  But whatever we choose, summer is great time for a getaway.

This year, we’re driving from our home in Montana to the Western Writers of America conference in Kansas City, Missouri.  We’ll take the back roads, meander two-lane highways that wind through six different states.

Along the way we hope to visit old writer friends, Kathleen and Michael Gear–authors of the PEOPLE series that takes place 10,000 years ago.  They live on a buffalo ranch in Wyoming.

From there, we’ll head for the Dakotas, spend a little time in Rapid City, a great old West town.  Lots of historic buildings and fun art galleries.

Staying off the beaten path, you can find all sorts of intriguing bits of history.  Sioux City sits right on the Missouri, plenty of steamboat lore, and you can learn about Louis and Clark in Omaha.  If you’ve never done a cross country road trip, it’s really a worthwhile adventure.

Speaking of highway adventures, BEYOND REASON travels the roadways of Texas.  It’s the story of Carly Drake, a young woman who inherits her grandfather’s trucking firm and all the problem that go with it–including murder.

Carly’s biggest problem, however, turns out to be six foot-five-inches of solid male muscle–handsome, mega-rich, powerful and controlling, Lincoln Cain.

It’s high action all the way and of course plenty of hot romance.  I hope you’ll watch for BEYOND REASON and that you enjoy it.

So…what’s your favorite adventure?  Love to hear about it.  Have a great summer and happy reading!

Kat

    Hi Kat, Welcome! Your upcoming travels sound thrilling. I can only imagine the many discoveries you will make that may eventually turn into another great story. My favorite adventure was the first time I visited my grandmother’s farm in the Dominican Republic. Although I had been born and raised in Brooklyn, New York; a city girl, I was surprised to find how at home I felt in a rustic setting and how much I was like my grandma. I loved bathing in the river with leaves that lathered like soap and the taste of water out of homemade gourd mugs. Looking forward to reading your posts and whatever advice you can offer newbie writers. Happy Trails.

      Veronica, WHAT an adventure, indeed! And what a family history 🙂 Bathing in the river with sudsy leaves? Mmmmmm…..

  • Geralyn Corcillo says:

    Kat Martin, what a wonderful post! I, too, am married to a writer – and it sounds like you and your husband are living the life 🙂 I so enjoyed my cross-country trip when I drove out to my current home, California, from my childhood home, Pennsylvania. LOVED The Corn Palace! My favorite adventure has to be when, in college in England, me and my friend Kym went to Ireland for a week. We biked everywhere and it was just truly magical 🙂 . Congratulations on all your success and super good look with the awesome release this summer!
