The Omniscient High Desert

During the editing of the manuscript of A Killer’s Grace, several reviewers asked about the context of the high desert. For the reader, there are occasions in the plot development where the West Mesa is a central element in the development of the protagonist, Kevin Pitcairn.

Because he is shaped by the environment, as we all are, the high desert is used as a character in its own right. Think of it as an omniscient perspective viewing the plot and characters from a place of great altitude.

To be honest, that’s how I experienced the West Mesa. For many years I meandered it not unlike Pitcairn.
