  1. Dayna, I’m so impressed with your easily accessible web page and all the embedded links. In addition, it’s a beautiful place to visit and hang around. Thank you so much for spotlighting my story about a remarkable woman who never takes “no” for an answer. Her fighting spirit and bravery along with her intelligence and compassion just couldn’t be left uncovered in the dusty parts of long ago memory. Because she left no primary source material, I had to fictionalize her voice and a few characters, but her documented life by others left me an exciting, page-turning story I had to write.

  2. The Spinster, the Rebel, and the Governor sounds like a great historical read and I am looking forward to it. Thank you for sharing the author’s bio and book details
