SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Jan Dirksen lives in Sioux Falls with her husband and is a nurse at Sanford. She said she was reading a book last August that wasn’t very good, and she thought she could write one more intriguing. So she started writing a fictional novel based in South Dakota. It took her four months to write it. The book is set primarily at Lewis and Clark Lake in South Dakota with many references to Sioux Falls.

It’s called Summer Sisters, and she self-published it through Amazon. Dirksen said she learned how to do everything on her own from a copywrite page to designing the front and back of the book. It’s only available on Amazon right now.
