SHaving finished first draft of Love Refuses to Die, a romantic thriller, treated myself to a mini vacation. The glamor of the luxury brand name, Vanderbilt , always appeals so I with headed for the Vanderbilt Beach Resort on West coast of Florida. Old Florida style: a complete delight, feet in the sand dining and wonderful food. The Turtle Club is family run (not Vanderbilt – the name stretches back to the fifties) and the staff make everyone feel relaxed,welcome and at home. So much so, I may move in! Also visited a fun theater experience in Fort Myers, Murder Mystery train, five star gourmet dining and an interactive theatre performance – this season show the is Candidates for Murder. Rounded vacation time off with a nostalgic visit to Tin City, Naples, and exotic waterfront dining. If you go, and I highly recommend it – check out two of my new favorite shops American Art & Pottery – Rainforest Artisans – and Jungle Fever, boutique with imaginative and artistic range of ladies fashion. I call these wonderful experiences – Research. I love my chosen profession. Writer seeking creative inspiration!!!!
