#WriteWed A Paranormal with the Terracotta Army?

Right now I’m in Contemporary Romance mode with the At the Shore series. In fact, I am finishing #2 and just got back the copyedits on #1 – One Summer Night (Oct 2017).

But I like to dabble in the paranormal from time to time and have often thought about what interesting things could be used as a basis for a new story. The Knights Templar and the Holy Grail? Sure. Even researched that one when I was lucky enough to go to London. It’s still a work-to-be-developed.

Another concept that I thought would be fun is a story revolving around the amazing Terracotta Army. Imagine over 8000 soldiers, chariots, and horses made of terra cotta that could somehow come back to life to serve their emperor.

That’s exactly what one farmer found as he was digging a well. Archaeologists evenutally did additional investigations and discovered the immense city of the dead which is estimated to cover over 38 square miles. I would love to visit the museum there one day and see the terra cotta army and structures for myself!

What do you think? Inspiration for a story?
