When did you write Much Ado About Miners?

I wrote the first three chapters in 2012. Took a couple months. I wrote the rest of the book in November, 2013. Sometimes you’ve got to ramp things up a bit.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

This book is the fourth book in the Hearts of Owyhee series and is connected to the first book of the series, Much Ado About Marshals, by the heroines, who are sisters. In Marshals, the hero tries to rescue his friend from a perceived bank robbery and is shot by the lady teller. When he gets to Oreana, Daisy Gardner (the heroine) mistakes him for the new marshal. But guess who the lady teller was? Daisy’s sister, Iris! So I always knew that Iris’s story would have to start with her shooting the hero. Easy-peasy. I just had to think of a story to go with it, which ended up being Much Ado About Miners.
