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)

Spring Means Chickens, Bunnies and Bees (as well as Books!)!

Yes, we all know my book, Copper Iron and Clay is out, and that’s all exciting and I’ll write about that again as well I’m sure, but it’s spring in Wisconsin!! And even though it’s definitely not warm enough for afternoons on the beach (as much as my kids wish it was so), we can talk about the other fun things coming to the Dahmen house this spring, besides that big hardcover book.
