John, I read online that there was a woman from the Seattle area that was going to also write a book on Betty. I cannot remember he name but she said that nobody has ever written a bio on Betty because there was a lack of information but that she had found additional info in her latest research. Just wondered if you hear about that? I have always thought that the right book written about Betty would be wonderful and may very well spawn a well done movie on my favorite author ever...

Judge Wilkins did mention Betty in his autobiography, The Sword and the Gavel. He felt that the Bishops deserved "something" for what they endured after the book was published, but a jury did not give them a penny.

Rusty, sorry for the delay in replying to your post. I have been researching Betty for over a decade now and, there is still alot of information out there to be discovered. It takes alot of perseverance and intestinal fortitude to get just a fraction of information on someone as well rounded as Betty.
