Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I was 12 years old in 1974 and staying at home with a babysitter while my parents and 11 year old brother flew in our private airplane to a nearby city for a weekend excursion. On the return trip they crashed onto a frozen lake high in a mountain pass. This story has been in our family for over 40 years and I figured it's about time someone wrote about it. So I volunteered.
