Galveston Island

One of my favorite places in the word is Galveston, so it wasn't difficult to decide to set parts of Drift in this historic city. These are a few pictures I took for inspiration while writing. For a more extensive inspiration board, check out my Pinterest Board here. You'll find everything from character descriptions to images of items described in the book. Enjoy!

The picture below is not of the actual Florentine Diamond, but of a vintage citrine circa 1920's. I saw it on Etsy, and it reminded me enough of the diamond in Drift that I had to buy it.
