About the Author

jane buchanan

When people ask me where I get my ideas, I might tell them about the time I was tucking my son into bed and apologizing for having lost my patience earlier that day. He looked up at me with an impish gleam in his eye and said, “What does patience look like, Mommy?” There have been many beginnings since then, sparked by just such small moments. A writer has to stay alert to the little things. The way an acorn holds an oak tree, they just might hold the start of something big.
