In March, I returned to Dubai and the Novotel World Trade Centre – the scene for many an escapade within Sandstorm, and also home to the legendary blue bar.
It felt great to be back in a place that inspired me so much, and is also the setting for one of the raunchiest scenes in the book; I couldn’t help but giggle as I look who sat on that stool! By luck, I was able to photograph the book next to Jimi, as mentioned above, and then a photograph of me with the book outside. The dress happened to match all the colours perfectly – definitely more luck than judgement!
I have always been inspired by my travels, but the blue bar remains legendary among the Arabian horse community. I am happy to have captured that magic within the pages of Sandstorm.
