What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The character of Hope first appeared in my book, "Mrs. Thistlethwaite and the Magpie" in a minor role. When she later married the pastor of a church in small town Bannoch, Oregon, where my my First Ladies Club series is set, it seemed natural to focus the next book in the series around Hope.
