I get asked this a lot.
Anything historical appeals to me as a writer, reader and individual. I love learning about the lives that lived before us. I don’t always write western, but it is the backdrop of most of my books.
I find the western era to be anything but boring. There were outlaws, Bounty Hunters, cattle thievin’ and more. But what intrigues me, as a writer is the strength of the women who lived back then. Women were raised to be subservient to their husbands, but also worked alongside them tending the fields. They were not weak in strength or mind and for anyone to assume so is dead wrong.
Poppy Montgomery is one of those women. She is tough; a good shot with any gun, resilient and kind, even though you won’t see it at first. When I created her, I thought of the women of the west and what they had to endure. Poppy fit perfectly into this role. Not because she was a woman bounty hunter, which I found cool in itself, but because she was spirited, a bolt of energy, a firecracker when angered, and gentle touch to offer support.
Poppy is a Montgomery after all, and those Montgomery girls are a force to be reckoned with, each hard willed and hard minded. Fern, Poppy and Ivy each created their own destiny…their own happy ending.
