Lily Ennisabout this book: Fire in the Mountain is set chiefly on a volcanic mountain in New Zealand's North Island. It is a romantic suspense and deals with a couple of scientists who reconnect after a lifetime apart. The book has two more threads, one of which takes the reader back to New Zealand's involvement in Monte Cassino during World War Two.
The central North Island is an area that I am very familiar with having undertaken numerous hikes and volunteered with the eradication of wilding pines. I have a geology degree and the mountain environment in my book draws on both my experience on the mountain and also on the science of a volcanic mountain. New Zealand has a hut system where hikers can stay. The action in the book takes place in one of the smaller huts on the leeward side of Mount Ruapehu. At night the lights of a small army town are visible.
Background context is important in my story telling and I was able to incorporate the stealing of war medals into my narrative and weave a story around that.
