Olivia M. Dutton grew up in a northern city, but spent most of her summers in the Deep South, running and playing in the fields on her grandparents’ farm. She used to ask her grandmother many things about life, while she helped her shell peas on the back porch. When Olivia thought she was old enough to learn about the birds and the bees, she asked her grandmother where babies came from. And her grandmother’s response? “Chile, just keep your dress tail down and you won’t have to worry about all that.”
Olivia never forgot that answer, and so she used it to create her first novelette, Mama Said, Keep Your Dress Tail Down.
