I spent my early childhood on the Navajo reservation, and I’ve read all of Tony Hillerman’s novels, so working on Anne Hillerman’s convincing Leaphorn and Chee sequel meant a lot to me. I even made it out to the book launch party in Santa Fe—a great excuse to revisit the reservation. So I was super pleased to see 
Spider Woman’s Daughter at No. 10 on the New York Times best seller list soon after I got back home—the same week that The Signature of All Things was at No. 4. Things don’t get much better than that!
