Judd’s Back Story
I just finished reading your book Shiloh it was really amazing but I was never able to figure out why Judd`s parents would treat him that way. I think you need a back story on Judd`s life and why Judd got whipped but overall the book was one of the best to ever exist.
I think you’re right, that Judd’s childhood would make a good story. But we could say the same thing about the preacher in book 4. I really don’t have time to write back stories about the various characters in my books, but I felt it was enough for the Shiloh readers to know that Judd was also mistreated as a child, so he took his anger out on other people and his dogs.
