Inspiration for Rosalind
Nancy Hartmann was a dear author friend. She passed away early in the spring of 2017. She was one of those lovey rare complete people. Though subdued and tentative, she was a courageous and brazen powerhouse. She was giving, artistic, and a selfless mother, grandmother, and friend.
Nancy was adopted as a young child, her given name was Rosalind Abel. I knew none of this, but as I was interviewing her to be a character in my Rocky Mountain Boys series, she told me the story of her heritage and of her birth name. She wanted her character in RMB series to have that name. When I was starting the new imprint of writing and considering a pen name, I couldn't think of better way to honor her memory and life than to be known as Rosalind Abel.
This is for you, Nancy. I love you and miss you! I hope you are smiling down and loving every bit of shenanigans your namesake gets up to!
