From the Author:
Recently, while working on Desert 2, I worried that a scene wasn't legit enough. Believability is important to me, enough that my husband helped me test the choreography of the fight scenes in Desert 1.
Now with Desert 2, I have a complicated stair scene where there are several factors at work. My very patient daughter helped me work on a rescue scene, with me testing different ways of carrying someone.
More than once, I've worried if that scene was true to life, and I've run up and down stairs, carrying heavy objects just to test how fatigued one of my characters would be. I found out that I'm not nearly as tough as I thought I was (legs were burning by the fourth floor!) and that movies make things look way easier than they are in real life.
So when I saw this video, it was a LOL moment.
Finding a good book to read is like digging through rocks, looking for diamonds.
