Actually, no I didn't know anything about "Kate" back in those days. I wrote Dangerous Decision first, and then I wrote Long Ride Home (but switched the order when submitting to my publisher). Later on, I heard a true story about a friend at church, whose older son (age 15) had left home after his sister was born, and they had never heard from him since . . . even 15 years later. That really intrigued me (in a sad way). Then, my new daughter-in-law shared with me how her older sister had come home to live with her 3 little kids. Okay . . . a story in the making here.

I hope that answers your question, Leah!
