At the time, I was still working as an Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Naval Academy and I was teaching two senior seminars on Thomas Jefferson. Steph and I talked about how many books there were about him and how difficult it was to find a unique perspective on him. And then we thought about his daughters--and neither of us could think of anything much written about them. And that got us thinking, over burgers at that writing conference, about what Jefferson was like as a father, not just a founding father.

After dinner, we raced back to our hotel and started researching that night. We couldn't find hardly anything--fiction or non-fiction--that had been done on Martha Jefferson Randolph, Thomas's eldest daughter. That night, we committed to the crazy brainchild of combining our experiences in co-authoring a book about her. Frankly, we had no idea the journey we were about to embark upon. We didn’t know that it would take five years, three agents, eighteen thousand letters, and a road trip to get this book out.

But we did know, right from that very first night, that we had stumbled upon a great untold American story. (less)
