What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My parents had me late in life. If they were alive they would be 100 and 103. They told me stories about days gone by. The story of Some Happy Day begins with a child who slipped out of a wagon into the tall grass and was lost from her family. This happened to my dad. Only he awakened in time to see where the wagon went and followed the tracks to catch up with them.
I thought the story was good and the other things that happened in the book were built on and around this.
