One day it was destroyed in a terrible thunderstorm. I cried and cried when the remains were taken down. That tree and my traumatic experience of losing her became an integral part of THE ACCIDENTAL WITCH (book one of The Recollection of Trees series).

I spent the day waist-high in cold, muddy water, pulling out car tires, lawn chairs, boots, ...
