What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The American west has fascinated me since my youth. The hardships and tragedies that befell so many nameless pioneers in their pursuit of a new life is a timeless theme, and one that cries out to be told.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I felt it important that my main character should see and experience this journey with a naïve innocence. As the world opened up before the travellers, so I wanted my character to find and define herself on that journey. It soon became obvious to me that my lead had to not only be young, but also female, to allow a clearer, more balanced view of the adventures as they unfolded.
