Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I was born in Medford, Oregon, and now I live in Ogden, Utah.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

I love to write historical fiction. So when I find something I’m interested in, I hope others will find it fun to read about also.
Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

I can’t think of just one person who has influenced me. I have always loved to read. My grandmother and mother loved to read, so I enjoyed books also. I would say all the authors I have read over the years have blazed the way for me to become a writer. I love a good story, and I wanted to write like those who have gone before me.
What is the name of your book?
