When I came up with the idea of Bordertown as the setting for my new paranormal romance series, The League of the Black Swan, I knew that it would be a frontier town situated between the human, Fae, and demon realms and located beneath, between, and behind the streets of Manhattan. But I didn’t know where to put it! So, I turned to two wonderful friends for help.
Sarah Wendell, owner of the romance blog site Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, pointed me to the High Line Park, an amazing community park and garden space that was created out of an abandoned railroad track that runs right through the lower west side of Manhattan. Another friend, RT’s own Morgan Doremus, also loves the High Line Park and was kind enough to take a series of amazing pictures that I posted on my bulletin board for inspiration.
