A list of scenes I’m writing for the next Bree mystery looks something like this:
The pool of burdocks and foam. (In fond memory of my ponies.)
The gantry crane of spiders. (A Tintin movie stunt.)
Snakes in boxes. (As a nod to Indiana Jones.)
The pit of spurting fire. (In honor of The Princess Bride.)
Tightwire of doom. (This one’s for Bird on a Wire.)
And there will be many more!
And did I tell you Bree has a broken leg in this book? Makes these scenes all the more interesting, don’t you think?
