Interview with Author Tracie Peterson
First of all, Taming the Wind is the third book in the Land of the Lone Star Series. How did this series come to be? What inspired you to write this series?As I was researching Texas, I came across information that dealt with the diversity of attitudes during and just after the Civil War. Texas was like a country unto itself and there were people who supported both sides of the war. Then there were a great many people who were just strong, staunch supporters of Texas. The history fascinated me and the series idea was born.
When you approached the first book in the Land of the Lone Star series, did you already have in mind what you wanted to happen to the characters in book three?
What was the hardest part of writing this third book?
Which character is the easiest for you to write? The hardest?
