The Importance of Setting

Written by Iris Blobel

My latest book “Journey to Her Dreams” is set in Tasmania (Australia) and Ireland.

Tasmania is only 240 km across the Bass Strait and the most southerly state of Australia. I love Tasmania and on my recent journey to the little Apple Isle I re-discovered the beauty of this place, the hospitality of its people, yet fortunately did not encounter any of the infamous ghosts. J So hopefully  should you ever come to Australia you will also take the time to visit Tasmania.

But I also LOVE Ireland ... what’s not to love? Really. Fairies. Leprechauns. Shamrocks. My kind of place. So for the little bit of mystery and luck I needed in my story I used Ireland!

Tickled your fancy just a little bit ?? Here’s the blurb for “Journey to Her Dream”:

Would you travel around the world to uncover the reason for your dreams?

Hollie Anderson does.

A young woman from Tasmania who lives on a farm just outside Launceston, she has got good looks, likes her job and loves to hang out with her friends. She should be happy, right?

But it’s a recurrent dream that throws her daily life into chaos and takes her on a journey to Ireland. While on her quest for answers she meets Sam in Dublin under unusual circumstances and both women, so different in many ways, find out they have one thing in common - and it changes their lives forever

Price: $2.99 or paperback $11.99

  1. I'm often drawn to a story by the setting. Lots of writers consider it to be a character, because it contributes so much to the story. Hollie's Journey wouldn't have been quite so dramatic if she hadn't had to travel so far to learn about her dreams, so your settings definitely played a major part! Nice post, Iris.
