It has been a while since I’ve written about my A-frame house in the foothills, the setting for the creation of my first novel…the one with themes from my life and my career, which you can find in detail in A House That Inspired a Story.
An Accidental Life portrays characters whose lives just seem to happen to them…almost accidentally. I acquired the house almost accidentally, too, when funds appeared unexpectedly. The A-frame is depicted on the cover of the book with the face it wore back then, a redwood brown. I later painted the house this sage green color (above).
To revive the images, I created a blog button today that mimics the shape of the A-frame house, wearing an approximation of its final color….
Do you sometimes choose your path accidentally, or does life seem to happen while you’re making other plans? Perhaps you can relate to some of these characters.
