Royally Roma was inspired by the movie Roman Holiday, starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. I'm a huge fan of classic books and films. Roman Holiday is the very first old movie I remember seeing.

New York, Actually
by Sarah Morgan | Interview

Q: What's your inspiration for this story?N:
I was on Facebook one day when I spotted a photo of a Dalmatian with a heart shaped nose. He was completely adorable and I knew he had to have a starring role in a book.

The Librarian and the Spy
by Susan Mann | Interview

Q: After reading the blurb, I thought, what a cool story. What's your inspiration for this story?N:
Thank you! Most people are well-acquainted with librarian stereotype: the dour, bun-sporting humorless scold who wants nothing more than suck the joy out of life.

Sue-Ellen...

In Mistletoe
by Tammy L. Bailey | Interview

Q: First, I have to say, I love your cover! There's something sweet and heartwarming about the way the two of them are snuggled against each other. What was your part in the cover-making process?
Thank you. I love the cover, too. Basically, my part is to search through stock photos and then send the cover artist some ideas. When I saw this couple, I created a mock cover using Canva and then posted it on my personal Facebook page. I received a lot of likes, so I knew this couple is who I wanted...

Out of Orbit
by Thea Landen | Interview

Many, many...
