Author BL Wilsonabout this book: I had a dream about a Black female doctor driving through a small all-Black and Brown town, almost from another age when folks didn't lock their doors. When folks all knew each other. What affected one resident in the town affected the entire town. Folks knew each other's "business." Folks knew each other's children and didn't need parental permission to discipline them because folks trusted their neighbors' judgment.

I decided I'd write a book about an old-fashioned town. I'd make the town full of Black and Brown folks. Typically, quaint towns as described above are portrayed as all-white or mostly white. I wanted my imaginary town to be folks of color. I wanted the folks to be sexually diverse as well. I wanted most of the main characters to be female. I didn't want the town to only be filled with women either. My town needed its men too.

As I thought about my town, I wondered what it would look like. Who would occupy it? What was the main industry? How would the town be discovered? The more I researched, I decided River's Bank could be a small farm town with milk cows as the main product. The town had a few horses and grew wheat, corn, soybeans, and other vegetables mainly to feed the stock and the folks who lived there. The river that ran through the town and several offshoots of the river fed lakes that still had good fishing in the summer and winter.

I fleshed out my imaginary town and its people when I wrote THE DOCTOR IS IN, River's Bank a small town full of big love.
