One of the fun things about writing fiction is that your characters can have experiences…go places, savor wonderful food, order exotic drinks, have adventures and wear whatever you want them to wear. You can enjoy their life vicariously, without leaving the comforts of home.
In the stand-alone sequel to Book 1, Fool me Once, one of the characters in Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows, is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She buys a turquoise necklace for herself, but she’s not an ordinary woman and it’s not an ordinary necklace; hers is green.
I lived in New Mexico for a time and the turquoise jewelry in the window of every shop was the ubiquitous turquoise-and-coral, set in silver. In researching the background for the plot, I learned that turquoise is a color, sure, but the stone itself can range from blue to blue-green to green, with many shades in between, depending on the amounts of copper and aluminum in the rock it’s extracted from. If you prefer your turquoise jewelry in green, Ebay to the rescue.
