I was recently lucky enough to take a trip to London with my wife for a few days, and while we weren't able to see nearly everything we wanted to in such a short amount of time, we were able to fit in a fair amount of sight-seeing as well as a couple of shows. For me, though, one of the highlights was a visit to Hyde Park, where I was able to retrace the steps of one of my characters - Callum Swift - as he raced through the park in the Prologue of my book; The Keeper Chronicles: Playing with Fire. Though things have changed from the maps I used to construct his Victorian-era chase, much is still the same, and to the left you can see a photo of the lamppost and the tree that feature so heavily in that section of his story. What fun it was to be there in person and see it! Have you ever visited a place from one of your favourite books?
