What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Visiting the library with my daughters and reading bedtime stories to them are some of my fondest "Mommy" memories. I often thought someday I'd write a children's book, and I did—more than once! That's How It Was is my first.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many people wonder . . . what does a part Hispanic, part Native American woman, who has lived her entire life in New Mexico, know about growing up on a farm in the predominantly German and Scandinavian mid-west? Simply put . . . I married into it. Back in the day when I was dating, I had a dear friend tell me if I found someone who had a happy childhood, he'd be a good catch. I didn't give it much thought at the time, but it may have been a premonition on her part. I hit the jackpot! It turns out the love of my life had a wonderful, happy childhood growing up on a farm in the country. Over the years I've listened to my husband and his cousin talk about their mischievous escapades. Thus, the main characters and their stories are loosely based on real life.
