Images that inspired me in writing 'Broken Sky'.

Who doesn't love Agent Carter?!
Books To Buy
I Love Books
Beautiful Book Covers
Book Of Life
The front cover! I love this. It somehow encapsulates the world without giving too much away. Awesome.
Do You Believe
The original cover and title for Broken Sky. Though it was decided that this wasn't quite right, the model is exactly how I imagine Amity Vancour, my heroine.
Most Beautiful Man
Spencer And Toby
Pretty Little Lairs
Actor Keegan Allen looks SO much like how I picture Collis Reed. Amity grew up with Collis and calls him 'Collie'.
Supermarine Spitfire - Classic RAF Fighter
The Firedoves that Amity flies in Broken Sky are Spitfires in disguise. Amazing, iconic airplanes.
This Is Love
All You Need Is Love
Look At You
Je T'aime Encore
Amity and Collie
All You Need Is Love
One And Only
We Heart It
This reminded me of Amity and Collie...she's known him for most of her life, so when they fall for each other, they fall hard.
Aquarius And Sagittarius
Wheel Of Fortune
I got the idea of having astrology in the Broken Sky world from Hitler's supposed interest in the occult.
Most Beautiful Man
This image of a young Rufus Sewell is very much how I picture Ingo Manfred, another Peacefighter pilot in the story.
Tsar Nicolas Ii
The Greatest Soviet Propaganda Posters Ever
This classic poster of Lenin reminded me of John Gunnison, dictator of the Central States.

Tarot Card Meanings
'The Tower' tarot card becomes quite important in the story. Weirdly, as I was writing the book, I found this card lying on the ground one day...spooky!
Vintage New York
Love this steamy-looking, 1940s skyline. SO film noir!
Los Angeles Area
Downtown Los Angeles
Us Bank Tower
Bunker Hill Los Angeles
Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles in the 1940s. These are the sort of buildings in Amity's world.

Places To See
My Kind Of Town
Another great view of art deco buildings.
Zodiac wheel. Amity's sun sign, Aries, is in red at about the nine o'clock position.
Arte Yin Yang
Ying Y Yang
Yin Yang Art
Yin Yang Balance
Yin Yang Tattoos
The Harmony symbol. I decided that Gunnison corrupted the yin-yang image for his own purposes, much like Hitler appropriated the swastika (which was once a good luck symbol).
Guys And Dolls
A pay phone in a drugstore, 1940s. When Amity makes a secret phone call to the World for Peace, it's on this sort of phone.
Old Movie Stars
The original 'Holllywood' sign (the 'land' part fell down in a storm). In Amity's time, only the 'H' and one of the 'L's are still present. She sees them before one of her battles.
American Classic Cars
Old Classic Cars
8 Seater Cars
I love the look and lines of 1940s vehicles. I tried to get a sense of them across in Broken Sky.
Fly Around The World
We Are The World
Amelia Earhart. I did a lot of research on female pilots in writing Broken Sky. Amelia truly rocked.
World War Two
Wings in the sky: Fotos
Felix The Cats
Season Of The Witch
Untitled | Flickr - Photo Sharing! on We Heart It
Love this photo for the secretive, occult atmosphere.
San Francisco Earthquake
My collection of funny emails from my inbox.
Market Street, San Francisco, after the devastation of the 1906 earthquake. I could picture the aftermath of the Cataclysm in Broken Sky looking like this.
Westonzoyland airfield derelict buildings
Broken Sky takes place against the ruins of our own world. I pictured a 1940s world set against ancient devastation.
Back To Nature
The Good Place
Urban Ghosts Media is coming soon
I'm really drawn to images of abandoned places - there's something so compelling about them. The airfield at the bottom looks like how I imagine the World for Peace complex might appear from the air.
