Daisy, the main character in my latest book, has two sisters, Mona and Anne.
That's not exactly a coincidence.
Mona and Anne are inspired by my own two sisters. And honestly, they helped to inspire the entire novel. In every story that I write, I'm first inspired ... by a setting, by a plot, by a person. And then, that inspiration spills into every aspect of the story from the first page to the last. For The Dream, that inspiration was growing up on a farm with two sisters. I love the relationship that Daisy, Mona and Anne have. I love that they grow up and learn about life together. I love that they don't always get along. And I also love that they eventually become best friends. And while The Dream is ultimately a love story, I do hope you enjoy the side story of these three girls. After all, you wouldn't have Daisy and Everton if you didn't first have Daisy, Mona and Anne!
The Dream will be available in just four days on April 2. Until then, you can pre-order your copy at the special pre-order price on Amazon now! ♥ Laura
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
