What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
In my personal life I wear so many hats working inside and outside the home. I work hard, try harder and then begin again the next day. Despite my best efforts, sometimes life just stinks. Bad things happen, and I need and want an outlet, an opportunity to relax and escape to a place where obstacles are met and overcome. I want to hear Good News. That is why I wrote Rebecca's Hope and followed up stories about her friends, with Emma’s Dream, Lois’s Risk and just released Maggie’s Strength.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
In my first novel Rebecca's Hope, I introduced a western town in the late 19th century filled with colorful characters and innovative young women. Maggie's Strength is a continuation of the tale based on Tennessee Montgomery's youngest daughter. In part her character and name are fashioned by my grandmother, Magdalena who entertained us as children with stories of her mischevious behavior. Her background coming from a large family mirrored my own life.
