Happy 2019, everyone! I wanted to start off the New Year by sharing the true story behind the events that inspired my novel, The Field. While I was home in Redding for Christmas, I went for a walk and took photos of the locations where I was abducted. Some of it looks the same 25 years later.  Other areas – like the clearing where I was taken – have been replaced by housing.  

Along with the photos, I would like to share sections of the police report taken on May 1, 1993 documenting the incident and what I told the officers who responded to the call.

The fateful road that began a nightmarish evening in May 1993.
The area across the street from Shasta View and Rancho Road where I was nabbed after an intense chase.
Now home to housing developments, the corner of Rancho and Shasta View used to be home to a large clearing where I was taken by my abductors.

More of the story coming up in the next post. Stay tuned…
