"Some people have asked me to leave the Republican Party, but I am trying real hard not to leave. I don't agree with the 'my way or the highway' thinking, but I do agree with party's principles,” Olschner said, acknowledging that the GOP needs to be a big tent party.

“We have lost the blacks, women, and Hispanics. All that is left is white men over 30. We should allow everyone in who is basically conservative. “

Olschner's book is available at amazon.com, the University of Florida Press, Sundog Books, and at all major distribution outlets. She currently has two other books in the works. One based on her father who was a North Carolina country lawyer.

“I am for fighting for all — left or right. We don't have a right to be intolerant,”she said.
