Julia Wright's Girlhood

How long did it take to write the book?

It took 7 months to write THE QUEEN OF MOLOKA’I. Some of that time was spent researching online, looking through old photos, remembering my grandmother’s stories about her teenage years, and picking the brains of relatives. I had to be selective synthesizing all the information in order to keep my grandmother as the focal character.
