Red Fear was inspired by an actual event that happened when she was four years old. A rabid dog was spotted walking down the street in front of her home. Her mother, Jane, kept calling this mad dog back from where their own pet dog was penned. The last time that Jane called the rabid dog away, it ran under their house where it was shot by her father, Peyton Morrel. Ta, Ta, Tootsie, Bo-Bo, is quite loosely based on her friendship with her late business partner. His mother had pet-named him Tootsie Bo-Bo. The conflict in her relationship with Tootsie led to this short story. Perhaps we all feel some animosity in relationships. These feelings often develop over time. In the case of Goodbye to the Wheelman, she usurped some incidents from a close friend’s marriage, which had ended. Disbrow has a long memory for stories, and she embroiders them to fit the story.
