Thank you for the question, Jeff!

I am one of those boring people who likes to read all about history - past and present - so a historical fiction made sense; it gave me an excuse to research a lot of things, from settler/Native American relations, language, and whether canning produce was available in the average 1880's kitchen! This was also a cathartic write, as I personally have dealt with some of the issues of the protagonist and it was (afterwards I realized anyway) a way to do some self-therapy!

Thank you again - I hope you enjoy the book (If you're reading/may someday read it)! Many cheers!!(less)

Honestly, I've tried to plow through when uninspired, but it really works best and most wonderfully if I wait for the moment to hit (usually does every year or every 18 months or so). Which means I have a lot of started ideas, but not so many that are complete yet!(less)
