Inspiration for the novel

My Story

I have long since been fascinated with Harper Lee’s moving story in To Kill A Mockingbird. It is such a crucial time in our history and discusses discrimination and big issues from a child’s perspective. Atticus, the father and attorney, on the criminal case is a model citizen, yet is faced with moral problems throughout the court case. With regards to medical thrillers, Kathy Reichs has inspired me in monumental ways, as she takes a female protagonist and puts her in a dangerous spine-tingling setting, every time. David Baldacci is a hero at this as well. The Last Mile is one of my favorite books and weaves a potential football great as a victim of a family’s secret struggle. Watt Key is a humble author of the stories taking place in the Southern Delta region. His lead character in Alabama Moon will stay with you, as if he’s your friend. And you can learn from him. I can’t say enough about Tim Sandlin, who is local to Jackson Hole, and prolifically writes, even when the Grand Tetons beckon everyone else to do anything but write. He makes it happen, and comes up with human interest stories, yet tackles them in creative ways. Please read Rowdy in Paris for a comic adventure, and stay tuned for anything new he puts out. These writers are my inspiration. They are very nichey, and I admire them.

    Doing something you love…isn’t it the only way to have time seem to stop? It’s effervescent for me to spend time standing in live water fly fishing for a fish called Trout. I used to be so novice that any trout on my line would do. Now, I’ve been at it awhile,  and to be honest: the more it weighs the bigger I feel.
