I stepped back outside, scrambled off the edge of the earthen ramp, and rounded the corner of the barn. I walked straight into the forebay like I had every right to be there and entered the lower level with apprehension raising the hairs on the back of my neck. I’d never liked bank barns. Their design was more suited for cattle than horses, and they were too dark and airless for my taste. The concrete floor and stone walls were cold and damp, and as I stood under the low ceiling, I had a sense of the weight of the upper barn pushing down on the joists above my head.
COLD BURN FUN LINKS . . .
COLD BURN is set in Warrenton, Virginia. Much of my early research for COLD BURN was done on the Internet, but I followed up with a visit to Warrenton and fell in love with this quaint town set east of the Blue Ridge Mountains and in the middle of Virginia horse country.
Speaking of horse country, here's a link to a wonderful tack store in Warrenton: Horse Country Saddlery. The photo on their home page says it all. Site content copyrighted 2006/2013 by Kit Ehrman. top of page
