As I strolled through old, dilapidated structures, I used to imagine how wonderful it would be to travel back in time and be a part of their lives for just one day. I began to entertain some ideas as to how I might do that and began jotting down notes in a book I carried around with me. When two of my granddaughters started writing stories for school, I caught the bug myself.” Soto goes on to explain, “I read the kids my first chapter to see what they thought. To my surprise they loved it and wanted more. As I started on the next chapter it was as if the book was already written and all I had to do was type it out the way I heard it in my own head.”
