What a good, delightful read your lovely novel is! Care to share how the major popped into your head?

I had a fleeting image of home and he just appeared at his doorway; dressed in a floral housecoat. I was certainly interested in a man who owned half a pair of shotguns - I am so very fascinated by the way family heirlooms and family money can so powerfully unite and divide us. The Major also gave me a way to write about someone who was definately not me. I prefer to write what I do NOT know.
