My first inspiration and challenge for writing Under the Weeping Willow sprung from a question: what would it be like, as a daughter, to have a strained relationship with my mother? And what would be the driving force behind it?

I enjoy working bits of history into my books. I have not felt the call to write about actual people as the base for my historical fiction books but rather time periods and events. I can’t justify playing with the incidents and emotions of a person’s life, though they are in the past. Although, I enjoy reading that type of historical fiction.

Happy Memorial Day! You may have bought a crepe paper poppy or seen them during this time of the year. I hadn’t really understood why veterans used the poppy as a symbol of remembrance until I started to research WWI for my upcoming book, Silver Moon.
