Inspiration behind Blood and Ink

posted in: Blood and Ink, Fiction | 0
In the first chapter of “Blood and Ink”, Annie and Grandma make a pilgrimage to a secret place that Grandma remembers from before drought came to their city.
The idea for the story came to me after wandering around a park near Kalamunda town centre, where rocks overlook the valley. I think the park used to be a golf course, though how anyone played golf on that rough ground, I have no idea. I wrote the first chapter of “Blood and Ink” almost immediately, and the rest of the story later.
