Frequent themes in her work are unsuspecting historical subjects, the modern west, corporate environments, women’s issues, wordplay and her formative years in her home state of North Dakota which was before oil was discovered there, so it wasn't famous for anything other than Louis L'Amour and 1995 number one MLB draft pick Darin Erstad (I went to high school with his lower draft pick brother).
