Goodreads asked Regina Shelley:

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

Regina Shelley Just love the Pony Express and westerns in general. This story formed in my head over a decade ago I was doing a lot of research and storytelling. A lot of my friends know different incarnations of some of these characters, so I pulled them out of mothballs, dusted them off, and gave them "novel makeovers."

It's complicated.

I don't research because I'm doing western novels, I'm doing western novels because...well, hell, I'm doing all this research anyways, so why not? ;-)

I'm rambling. I'll shut up now.
