I love the west coast, particularly California! Each time I visit I bring back a boat load of story ideas. Ebb Tide is the result of one of those California trips and a ride down the Pacific Coast Highway sealed the deal. Imagine pulling over onto a shoulder and that (see pic) is your view! Cali was definitely going to be the backdrop for my story about a self-made, adventurous playboy and his unique relationship with his straight laced attorney.
Let’s see…light, crisp, contemporary jazz inspired me for this one. On the surface Griffin and Evan have a light and breezy relationship. Listening to Najee, David Sanborn, Paul Hardcastle, and Boney James while cruising down that scenic highway is sublime. These are a few of the songs that helped me bring clarity to Griffin and Evan.
