Paul Collins–What prompted you to be an author and did you have a specific inspiration in mind? Were you influenced by a certain person, artist, or genre?
Becky Corwin-Adams- My mom has been an inspiration to me. She has written her own (unpublished) memoir of growing up during the Great Depression. I started writing short stories about my cats when I was six. I am a columnist for a farm newspaper. I decided to write a book in January 2013 and I ended up writing six books this year.
Paul Collins–If you could compare your book to any other existing works, which ones would it be and why?
