Writer Jenny Robin Jones - like so many people - was always fascinated by the United States - just the idea of it intrigued her.
And like anyone who's even passed through the country, you soon discover there are so many states of America - figuratively and literally.
So she decided to pick just one, and maybe draw some conclusions from it. And the one she picked was New Mexico.
Jenny Robin Jones discusses the result, her new book Love America - On the trail of Writers and Artists in New Mexico.
