Where did the idea come from for the book?
That’s kind of a funny story. Originally, this book was set in Wyoming. I wanted to do a story with a cowboy so I chose a place where a cowboy would work. But after I finished it, I realized something just wasn’t right. And it hit me! I’ve never been to Wyoming. But I have lived in Georgia my entire life. So I changed the setting to south Georgia and everything began to flow!
