It’s fun looking back on a book and remembering the inspiration for certain scenes.
In one scene of The Quarterback, there’s a very specific bed at a boutique hotel. (I’ll leave it at that, so there’s no spoilers.) This was inspired by a trip I took with my mother back when I was in middle school. Yes, not the expected place to draw inspiration from for a romance novel! But we were on a road trip and ended up in a small Midwest town. There weren’t any motels just B&Bs. So my mom, back when there was no internet, simply stopped when she saw a sign.
