Research for an author can be both mundane and fabulous. My research is normally pretty easy. If I have a technical question about something specific involving ranch life, I can usually remember from when I grew up or if I can't, I just call my brother. It's great having a real-live cowboy as my go-to guy.
And then there is the best kind of research...at least in my opinion.
This of course involves finding someone to base your character on, or at least provide inspiration. As many romance authors will tell you, this is one of the best parts of the job.
So in order to find this elusive character, I did what any other modern woman would do...I trawled the internet.
Please enjoy the results as much as I have.
I am an author and this is my story.
