B: That’s beautiful, Mindy!
What are some of the challenges you faced while writing A Father’s Promise?
M: My greatest challenge was coming up with the setting. My previous books were all set in the real town of Ouray, Colorado, but my editor wanted me to do a series in Texas, where I live. So creating a fictitious town was new for me. Ultimately, I pulled from several small towns to give Bliss the feel I wanted.
B: Gracious, building a town is no small feat!

M: I wouldn’t say I learned it, but I was reminded what a great brainstorming buddy my husband is. ?
B: Aw, so sweet! Good for him and for you!
