Of "Gravel Queen, " she says:
"I wanted to write an uplifting story about teen love that had a positive outcome. When I was growing up and discovering my identity, I read a lot about the tragic consequences of following desire lines, as well as negative stereotypes about the South, but did not see much evidence of either in my real, daily experience. So I wrote "Gravel Queen" to show the celebratory and fun part of teen life."
