Sometimes the tiniest things—a passing look from a stranger, a snippet of overheard conversation, a sunset against the mountains—can inspire or inform a story. When I wrote Pura Vida, I was lucky enough to have the beautiful setting of Costa Rica fresh in my mind as a backdrop for my guys. It’s a truly amazing country and I recommend it to all travelers.
