How did you come up with the plot for Shiloh?
Comment: How did you come up with the plot for Shiloh?
My reply: Most of my books begin with a certain situation in mind, and then a question. When I actually came across this abused dog in West Virginia, I thought, “I’m sure this dog was abused. What if we found the owner, and offered to buy the dog, but he refused. How could we persuade him to change his mind?” After that, things sort of fell into place. The more I imagined the character of Judd Travers, and then the family situation, of not having much money, scenes kept coming to mind and wrote them.
