Dana Martonabout this book: When a story is more than just a story...
About three years ago, sitting on Rehoboth Beach in Delaware with my sister, I had the first chapter of a book pop into my head--a young woman in dire straits in the Amazon rain forest. I wrote it down--authors never go anywhere without a notebook, not even the beach--then read it out loud on the spot to my sister who loved it as much as I did. (Getting funny looks from people sunbathing around us.) And then...NOTHING. I LOVED Daniela. I LOVED the setting. I knew she had a wonderful, epic adventure that I must tell, but I didn't know what it was. My muse sent me one chapter that I was completely in love with, and then not one more word.
So three years go by, I'm up with insomnia one night, and the rest of the story comes to me at around three in the morning. The whole book. I started typing and had the first draft in about six days. I was too afraid of stopping and losing the flow.
This book was not in my schedule for this year, but I couldn't turn away from Daniela and Ian. I don't think I've ever written a more mismatched couple, with more scars, more in need of redemption, who somehow, against all odds, are perfect for each other.
Take yourself on an epic adventure to the Amazon rain forest. Fall in love. Run for your life. WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE.
