Goodreads asked Teri Metcalf:

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

Teri Metcalf A few years ago, around the time of a big family reunion, one of my sons asked me if I would write a family history. At first the idea of writing a genealogy didn't appeal to me. Then I started thinking about all the colorful characters in my family, and the experiences I had growing up, and figured I could write a lively story. After testing the waters of self-publishing with "Chicken Poop," and winning the non-fiction award in a local writing contest, I decided to sit down and start writing a memoir.
