Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I really wanted to resolve the source of Gretchen's flight to Bridle Springs and had always planned to address it in book two. Since childhood I have been intrigued by natural remedies and wild edibles, I studied that in college and at my mother-in-laws kitchen table. I also wanted to give more depth to my characters in "Maid in the Shade. I think it is important to empower beyond gender and generations. Thanks so much for your question!
