Jayme H. Mansfield found fiction in her own family history.
Rush, her second novel, launches Nov. 1 and it's based on the life of Jayme’s great-great grandmother and the details of her involvement in the Oklahoma Land Run of 1893.
Using original letters from the era and her own research in Oklahoma, Jayme found out that “tall tales” about her ancestor weren’t so tall—and would make for a good novel.
Jayme H. Mansfield is an author, artist, and educator—and feels a bit incomplete when she’s not juggling all three balls. Her award-winning debut novel, Chasing the Butterfly, is a book club favorite and Amazon bestseller.
Jayme lives in Lakewood, Colorado, where she and her husband have survived raising three hungry, hockey-playing sons. When Jayme isn’t writing, she teaches art to children and adults at her long-time art studio, Piggy Toes.
