Story Inspiration

I’ve been asked many times where I get ideas for my stories. Most of my books take place in New Mexico or the surrounding area, because not only is that where I’m from, the history and culture is fascinating!

Last weekend we took a trip to Mesa Verde, Colorado to hike through the National Park and visit the cliff dwellings there. Such an awesome place! I thought I’d share some photos with all of you and let you see some of the amazing things the Southwest has to offer.

DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn’t speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but she had already taught herself to read. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published. Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist.

  1. It would be difficult to pick a favorite place in the American Southwest, but Mesa Verde would be high up on my list. On my last trip through the area I discovered many places that were new to me (Canyon de Chelly, Hubbell Trading Post, Wupatki, etc).

    1. Canyon De Chelly is really neat! It’s been quite a while since I’ve been there, but we want to take our kiddos soon. So many cool places to see around here 🙂
