A good story like a new pair of shoes needs a great “sole”

My work-in-progress, Paths through the Garden is the sequel to Nardi Point. Leyla Jo Piper and Hal Jared are on a personal quest which leads them to Rome, Italy. I’m here today doing research and fact checking. They are exploring the greatest archaeological dig of all times … ancient Rome.

Leyla Jo’s favorite historic site is the Pantheon. From the moment she walked into the amazing space, she felt the spiritual significance. Originally dedicated to all Roman gods or Pantheon, it has long since been transformed into a Catholic Church.

As I “walked” with Leyla Jo I found these great brogue shoes and couldn’t resist! But all good stories must have a great “sole” so what could I do?
