THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE ADVENTURES OF SHERIFF WILLIKER: The Adventures of Sheriff Williker was inspired by Kim’s childhood memories growing up in a small community in northwest Iowa. She named the sheriff after a saying her mom often said, ‘gee whiz willikers!’ Her grandparents lived in a very small town, Superior, Iowa, and were the picture perfect ‘Norman Rockwell’ grandpa and grandma. Her grandpa was a U.S. Marshal and her grandma was the town’s ‘doctor’. Kim would sit and listen for hours with amazement at the stories they would tell her of the early days. Her grandma would say, “long before there were automobiles our mode of transportation was a horse and buggy–a kerosene lamp lit our way.” Her grandma made house calls to deliver babies, many times traveling in freezing temperatures through snowdrifts. When Kim was sick, her grandma would always make her feel better by giving Kim one of her homemade remedies–warm lemon juice, honey–and lots of love!
