Jo here, pulling together Wenchly responses to the question, "Have you ever visited a place that's ended up in a book?"
I love the way in which anything from a snippet of conversation to a piece of music can inspire an idea for a book, and certainly I find that many places spark off story ideas for me. The most unusual would probably be Spitsbergen, in the Norwegian Arctic, which featured in Whisper of Scandal. Another unusual book idea sprang from a visit to Sutton Hoo in Suffolk. I love Suffolk and the town of Woodbridge in particular, and I set my Bluestocking Brides series in that area.
