Goodreads asked Brenda Wilbee:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Brenda Wilbee I got the idea of writing Lady Rebel many years ago while researching my great-grandfather of the original Canadian Mounties. In that research, I stumbled across Mary Drever, a young girl of 17 who was instrumental in the outcome of the Louis Riel Resistance of 1870.

I was intrigued how a young woman of her age found faith and strength to navigate her way in a man's world without losing herself--and still effect it's outcome.
