Why did you chose to write this love story?
I've always been inspired by the tragic love story, the story of great love that just can't be. My favourite book 'The Bridges of Madison County' stayed with me years after reading it and played on my mind. Then I read 'Twilight' and out of nowhere I had to write my own book. Before this I had never entertained the idea of writing. But the longing in 'Twilight' and the knowing that the one you love is the one that is dangerous for you resonated with me and I just had to write about that. So with the themes of desire and danger, I wrote a book about a married mother, because I wanted to write of what I know. I wanted to bring the great love story into the world of the typical suburban mum who is chasing after kids, working and running a home. I wanted her to have that Romeo and Juliet moment. So I wrote 'Love at First Flight'.
