From the first time Val picked up a Little House on the Prairie book in elementary school, she knew she wanted to be a writer. FTT is her debut novel, the first of a trilogy (and a planned bonus prequel). Though Val has about a million other stories living in her head, FTT is a story from the heart, inspired by an imaginative tall tale her father shared with her as a child. When she's not writing, she loves to spend time outdoors, especially when it involves horseback riding or hiking!
