The Dreamer of Downing Street book trailer.
My family has strong ties to Colorado and the city of Denver. These ties inspired many pieces of the story. Franklin's house on Downing Street was based on the house my grandparents owned. Just for fun and for those of you who love historical pictures, here's a snippet of my mother standing on the front porch of the house, then driving up to the curb with the Calvary Baptist Church looming large in the background.
Below is a photo from the early 50s. In front of the house are my cousin and Grandmother. The other photo is the property today.
Baby Doe Tabor was a colorful Colorado pioneer. I had to write a story that included her. Her love affair and subsequent marriage to Leadville Silver King, Horace Tabor, was scandalous. She was branded as a homewrecker. After his death, she became a recluse, living in a shack beside the non-operative Matchless Mine.
