We discuss KD's debut, a fictionalized version of a small-town murder in the late 1920’s that wound up garnering world-wide attention.and took place only two counties over from KD’s home base in southwestern Wisconsin. KD credits the advice she got from a former student as well as support from local bookstores and mentoring from women authors in our association with giving her the support she needed to produce this historical fiction which was subsequently selected as a finalist in the WFWA 2021 Star Awards for Best Debut Novel. Listen to the end to hear what infamous accused murderer lives in her family tree.
