From the Author

   I get asked this question quite a bit by readers. "Howdid you think of that weird plot? Where do you get your ideas? How do youresearch your plots? Are the love scenes based on your life? "
   The last one is my favorite, and I'm sure other authorswho write novels with strong romantic plots get that too.
   The answers are... "I get my ideas from everything,  and I research my plots online, in books,talking to people, living my life, and stealing from others . And yes, allthose sexy scenes are exact replicas of my life." HA!
   Okay, so most of what I wrote in that paragraph is true.Writers are watchers. We watch those around us, watch people we know and don'tknow, watch movies and read books and listen to the news all with a littlenote-taker inside our head saying, "I might use that." This embedded 'secretstenographer' is a reality most of don't talk about much, I think because weworry people will put their guard up, or, in the case of family members, willfeel dissed or disrespected if they knew we were taking notes while they were pouringout their heart and soul.
   Sometimes I think writers are just wired different. Ourobservation of others is chronic and impossible to stop. We love it so we cango write our ideas and impressions down, sift through them, change them  so WE understand what they mean, stand for orimply, then sculpt it into a whole new story of our own called 'fiction'. I,for one, feel I've solved a lot of my personal issues by sticking my fictionalcharacters with them and then watching, fascinated, to see how they handle it!
    As for the unusualplot of Secret Sister, the plot came to me almost completely wholewhen, during a conversation with mycritique group where we were kicking around plot ideas, I said I was sure that,even if every single thing about my appearance changed, my husband (yes, mytrue love) would recognize the 'me' inside.
   Now of course that started a whole discussion about 'whatif'.  How would a person handle this? Howwould you negotiate if this impossible, not real, not-going-to-happen eventhappened to you?
   The fascinating aspect of this situation to me was howone would convince those closest to them what had happened. And that led to awhole series of notes being jotted down on how I would accomplish convincing myhubby, who is nicknamed 'Phil-the-fist' (my Marine with a teddy-bear heart),what had happened.
   So that's where the idea for Secret Sister came from.From my conviction, very romantic and some would say a little kooky, that truelove recognizes its mate, no matter what.I am not ashamed to say I believe in fate, in two people belonging togetherbecause they're meant for each other. Phil-the-fist and I are one example.  And Cathy and Nick are our stand-ins!
