I found this ‘side character’ intriguing, as it were, when I read the first two books in the “Flowering” series by Sarah Daltry. (http://amzn.to/HDz1oZ) With Sarah’s permission, I wrote the “Interview With Mayor Alana Reardon,” which is my take on where she ends up later in life. I’ve taken some pretty broad liberties with this character and tried not to go too far afield from where Sarah sees her. Alana has her own upcoming novel from Sara Daltry. Look for it.
