Jessica asked Stephanie Marie Thornton:

I absolutely loved Tiger Queens--how did you capture the Central Asian landscape so well? Any plans to go there one day?

Stephanie Marie Thornton Hi Jessica! I so wanted to travel to Mongolia to research The Tiger Queens, and actually had a trip planned, but the funding fell through. I'd still love to go one day and live in a yurt for a while, but I basically bought every Mongolian history book and travelogue I could get my hands on. It felt like a spent a year eating and breathing everything Mongolian!
