Sometimes I accompany my husband to Washington Nationals baseball games. He loves his “Nats”. I do find it fun to go to the occasional baseball game with him. At the games they hand you a copy of The Nats Insider magazine. While thumbing through it between innings I found inspiration for a character in my next Scottish Historical romance (with a time travel twist), Blaze of Glory. One of my secondary male characters, is a gruff, bearded, almost lion-like warrior. And I found him at a baseball game…

IMG_2765This is Jayson Werth of the Washington Nationals and perhaps the hairiest baseball player I have ever seen. This page from the magazine drew me in. Here was my character. Hairy, bearded, and with a warrior’s fierceness. An incredible find in the middle of the seventh inning.  Inspiration, blissfully, is everywhere!
