Would Judd be Taken Away?


I am a big fan of your stupendous book, “Shiloh”. The book was amazing! It was so well written. In the book so many theories popped in my mind. Like maybe Judd would be taken away for child labor laws or he would pin the deer on Marty. It surprised me that Judd actually went through with the deal. The way you came up with certain decisions blew my mind. I would have never thought Judd would actually give Marty that leash. The way you ended it was really cool. Like how everything ended up okay! I have some questions for you. How did you choose the way the book went? I have another question. How did you get your inspiration for “Shiloh”? Shiloh is such a great book and I can’t wait to read the next books!

I actually found a dog in Shiloh, West Virginia–skinny, frightened, dirty, hungry-and even after friends adopted her, I couldn’t get her out of my mind.  Feeling sure she had once been abused, I wrote a book about her (but changed her to a “he” for a variety of reasons).
