The story of Calmer Girls was born when I had a strong desire to write about two characters on opposite ends of the introversion/extroversion scale. Sisters Samantha and Veronica are only a year apart but you couldn't find more opposite personalities in spite of their similarly shared surroundings and life experiences. The contrast between them was fun to explore throughout the plot.(less)
