Here the setup. Confined to prison for life, condemned for a crime he didn't commit, Cleve Black Horse gets a surprise visit and a plea for help from the woman who cast the deciding vote to convict him.
A close friend's harrowing experience on a jury that wrongly convicted a Lakota man of murder was the seed of inspiration for this story. Lots of research followed--interviews, tours of the ND State Penitentiary, advice from a criminal attorney, lots of reading, and, of course, becoming part of a Lakota family through marriage. You might call it walking a mile in someone else's moccasins. (Over 47 years of marriage and still proudly walking!) So that's the genesis of THIS TIME FOREVER.
But how does a writer come up with a heartwarming relationship story with a setup like that? Through characters. Spend $2, add the book to your e-reader and you'll see.
My publisher tells me they're planning another great deal on one of my books in July. I'll keep you posted. Thank you so much for your interest in my stories.
