The one thing that’s most important to me is to have people realize how women can persevere under the most incredible conditions. I think that’s something very good about women, and I don’t think women’s stamina and strength have been celebrated enough.

Perseverance is a central theme in all my work, which includes the award-winning Colorado Mountain Women: Tales From the Mining Camps, a collection of short stories based on the lives of real women. I’ve explored this theme in both my historical fiction and in my stories and articles about flying.

Please share your own thoughts on women’s perseverance in the comments section. And enjoy the blog!
