Siara Brandt about this book: A Restless Wind, which is a historical romance set in the Old West, no doubt comes from those years that I spent at my grandparent's house. After a hard day of play, I would fall asleep listening to old westerns on TV. My grandfather was very hard of hearing and the living room was right outside my bedroom door. So every hoof beat, every gunshot and every challenging word was literally drummed into my very impressionable young brain along with all the familiar theme songs. Maybe that is why children and family have such an important place in this story. Those old black and white westerns left a lasting impression. They instilled a strong sense of values in me. I had always been drawn to the idea of strong heroes and heroines, and that, thankfully, has never left me. Developing such characters is the most interesting aspect of writing for me. Over the years, dreams and beliefs and ideals, and things like that, can't help but begin to generate a kind of life all their own. That is how this book was born.
