Q. What inspired you to write this story?
A. Seven years ago, my husband and I visited a little coastal town in South Carolina. We took a a carriage ride and heard snippets of a story about a man named Robert Smalls: he was born enslaved in 1839, liberated himself and others when he commandeered a Confederate gun boat in the Charleston Harbor, and eventually became, among other things, a US congressman. He was a hero we’d never heard about. We went back to Dallas, but I couldn’t stop thinking about him, and finally my curiosity just took over.
