What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My inspiration for Henry Wondered is the desert quail who live in my native Land of Enchantment. I became acquainted with them during my many walks along the arroyos.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters in Henry Wondered were created by combining my fascination with the curious desert quail and my own experience as a child. Similar to the characters in the book, when I was a little girl, I confused flamenco with flamingo and wondered why the dancers did not stand on one foot and wear pink.
Henry imagined Federico toppling over while trying to stand on one foot like a flamingo. Instead, Federico demonstrated his fancy foot stomping with a flourish of a raised wing and a shout of “Olé!” Henry was sure Federico had meant to say flamenco, but his blunder went unnoticed by the rest of the covey.
