I was lucky enough to get a chance to ask K’Anne a couple of questions about her book!

Why did you want to write this book, specifically?
It seemed a natural continuation of the original story Vetted.  I also wrote two prequels this year called Cavalcade and Pioneering.  Each is a stand-alone novel but yet the whole story of this one family over the course of 170 years is amazing.

What do you like best about it?
The way I was able to tie it all in together.  I never intended to write a sequel and yet, here it is and now I’m finishing up writing the final book in the series called Vetted Again.

Can you tell the readers something about Pioneering that they might not know just from reading the book?
Allyssa caressed the hood of the Ford king cab as she walked by it.  It was nearly new.  It had only fifty thousand miles on it, was in excellent shape, and had very little dirt on it and much less wear.  She again wondered at the price, just as she had when she saw the ad.  These vehicles went for over three hundred thousand used.  She understood why as she looked it over.  The EarthRoamer XV was a compact, energy-efficient, solar-powered luxury home.  It was built on a go anywhere, four-wheel drive, Ford commercial duty truck chassis and was powered by a quiet, efficient, powerful turbo diesel engine.  She knew the diesel part might get expensive at some point, but they were built to go for a long time.  Unlike conventional RVs that depended on noisy generators and campground electrical connections for power, EarthRoamer Xpedition Vehicles used massive solar panel arrays, huge engine-driven alternators, and large battery banks to provide quiet and environmentally responsible power.  At least, that’s what the sales brochures had said when Allyssa originally discovered them and drooled over them.  She had never thought they could afford one, much less one this well built and well-maintained.  That was why she had been so skeptical and tried so hard not to get her hopes up as she drove to check it out.  She was sure there was a catch somewhere.  Still, she had to try.  As she went into the RV area, she admired how compact and energy-efficient the unit was.  The whole thing was strong, lightweight, attractive, and its one-piece, molded and seamless composite body would ensure that Fiona was well taken care of as she worked or slept.  There was plenty of room for all her medical supplies too.  Some of them, not this one though, had granite countertops, maple cabinetry, and options for satellite TV and radio.  This one had a combination of stainless steel and laminate tables, and cabinets that were pleasing to the eye and would be perfect for a vet.

In ten words or less, tell us why we should buy this book?
The whole family is amazing and as I continued this story it makes you want to know about the Herriot’s.  Their extended family and everything that every happened to them.  Seeing how well it has been received, I’m thrilled.
