Gardening & Writing Hand in Hand

Our conversation reveals that her passion for writing came first, followed by gardening. She later found gardening to be an interesting subject for her books.

Her latest novels, The Kopp Sisters Series, explore the story of Constance Kopp, a true-life female police officer in the 1910s.
