Authors often talk about creating setting in their stories, but sometimes that love of place goes beyond a simple backdrop. Years ago, Ellen Stimson and her family decided to move from St. Louis to Vermont, where suddenly their daily life changed from city streets to small towns and chickens. Now, she’s the author of three books, Mud Season, Good Grief and An Old Fashioned Christmas, which all examine her life in the country. In this episode, host Rachel Carter (also from Vermont) chats with Ellen about how place can inspire you – and just how much they both love living in the green mountain state.
