Earlier this month, I was lucky enough to take part in the Tucson Festival of Books, in one of my favourite places in the world: Arizona. If you’ve read Did You See Melody? (or Keep Her Safe, as it’s called in the States), you might have guessed that I love Arizona.

I stayed at two amazing resorts: the Westin La Paloma in Tucson and the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain, where I also wrote some of Did You See Melody?.

In my next life I hope to come back as a cartographer for resort maps!
