Fun Facts About The Wings Series
The character of Molly Hart from THE WREN (Book One) was named after my paternal great-grandmother—Mary Agnes “Molly” O’Rourke Kearney, who emigrated from Ireland. ‘Hart’ is a family name on my mother’s side.
While writing THE DOVE (Book Two), I traveled to Las Vegas, New Mexico, and was able to find local research books that helped immensely in the layout of the town in 1877. If you’re a writer, do this. Often, local research isn’t available on the internet or Amazon.
When I wrote an early draft of THE SPARROW (Book Three), which takes place in the Grand Canyon, I included notations that indicated which rapid the characters were at on the Colorado River for my own reference. Unfortunately, some of these rapid tags were never deleted and made it into the final book. (When I released a new edition, I finally got them all.)
My inspiration for Tess’s storytelling abilities in THE BLACKBIRD (Book Four) was the amazing book Women Who Run With The Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, a Jungian psychologist.
While writing THE BLUEBIRD (Book Five), I lost the file twice. The first time, the manuscript was two-thirds complete and I had no backup. It took a week before I could face the computer again and start the long process of rewriting the book. Luckily, the second time I lost the file, I DID have a backup.
It has taken me 13 years to write this series, which includes 5 novels and 1 short novella.
