Libby Grandyabout this book: Several years ago, I fell in love with the renovated ghost town of Calico in the high desert of California. I researched the town, and it became my inspiration for the fictional local of my mystery, Desert Soliloquy. I have the town in the novel not renovated and privately owned.
The story begins in the abandoned silver mining town of Odessa and comes to a climax at the cliff dwellings of the Anasazi Indians at Mesa Verde, ourside of Durango, Colorado. Other locales are Los Angeles and San Francisco, but the two main locals are the high desert and Colorado.
My husband and I visited Mesa Verde as I wanted to make sure my descriptions of the cliff dwellings in the story were correct. Because of that visit, I had to change one of the action scenes as it wouldn't have worked in that particular cliff dwelling. Readers tend to find mistakes like that.
The title, Desert Soliloquy, represents the mysterious ambiance of the desert.
