Southern Arizona Wine Country

photo by Marina Martindale

When I’m not busy writing contemporary romance novels I enjoy photography and traveling. I got my first camera when I was nine, and I loved photography ever since. And now, with new digital technology, I’m now getting into video. I learned a lot from my good friend, Rob Resetar, who created my amazing book trailers.

Did you know that there are some wonderful wineries in southern Arizona? Here I was, an Arizona native, and I didn’t know about them until I moved to Tucson. They’re located near the Mexican border in a beautiful part of the state. From time to time I’ll pack a lunch and spend a day there. In fact, I liked them so much I also used this beautiful part of Arizona as a location in my contemporary romance novel, The Betrayal.

Here is a video montage I produced about southern Arizona wine country. You can see why it became the inspiration for McPherson Vineyards, the fictitious winery in The Betrayal.

One final note. I produce my videos as Gayle Martin
