Janelle Diller has always had a passion for writing. Early on, she polished her writing skills by passing notes to her friends instead of paying attention in math class. Her resulting time in detention gave her lots of time to write more notes. As a young child, she wouldn’t leave home without a pad and pencil just in case her novel hit her and she had to scribble it down quickly. Sadly, she eventually lost this naiveté. However, as a result of her love of writing, she has an unusual variety of books published. The list includes books for the construction industry, grammar textbooks, and books for early and middle readers. Her latest writing adventure is with Pack~n~Go Girls, which has launched a line of travel and adventure books for young ...more

I left over 40 years ago(!) but remain a Kansan at heart. I get back to the state multiple times a year because I still have family and friends who live there. Just a few months ago, I was in Kiowa County, where the book takes place. In many ways, that part of Kansas hasn't changed much--except that there are a lot more wind generators! Greensburg, which is the county seat, is the one place that's dramatically different. In 2007, a tornado blew most of the town away, so the Greensburg you see today is entirely different than the Greensburg I had in mind when I wrote the book. That was the town I had in mind when I created the fictitious town of Sweethome.(less)

I haven't gotten feedback that anyone has been upset by the book, but I suspect that someone who might be upset wouldn't pick up the book in the first place because it would be too uncomfortable to read. I can imagine that for some readers, it may dredge up painful memories, which is not the intent. Rather, I hope people who read the book are able to talk, process, question, and find courage to deal with the topic. After all, isn't that what a good book should do? I hope it touches peoples' hearts.(less)
