Happy birthday to "Emma of Crooked Creek," published on this day in 2014.
Emma's story began without the intention of writing a series. Four short stories later, and plans for three more installments, is all possible because of Emma. I love a good frontier story about strong people who work hard to carve out a life in a dangerous, yet beautiful, land. After she lost her husband in the war, she was determined to remain in Montana. Lucky for Emma, she wasn't destined to figure things out on her own.
