Your work is emotional and raw. I know that you have used life events to inspire your books, and those inspirations have been proven to be the most beloved of your writings. I've also read your blog posts and wonder if your role as a mother and a grandmother are going to come up in another piece? To what extent has your already published work been inspired by your children and grandchildren?
Family connections are an ongoing passion of mine and always find their way into my books...even the one I wrote in which the main character was an orphaned dog! I don't expect that interest to change.
