What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A friend of mine had been through a relationship that had lasted for three years, only to inadvertently discover that her partner had a family of his own. It made me wonder how he was able to keep up the farce for so long. I also decided it would be a good angle coming from a woman.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I started with the main character, and as I do with most of my writing, it just developed from there.
She stopped for a moment to catch her breath, and then began to run again. Still on the footpath, she could hear the sounds of birds and smell the scent of Melbourne in winter dripping from the eucalyptus trees. She didn’t stop now, heaving her ballooned dress above her knees and wishing her lacy heels weren’t so high and tightly strapped up around her ankles; she could have discarded them too. She didn’t look back, she was afraid of what she might see, so she kept her eyes firmly ahead on the familiar streets of her childhood, not knowing where she was running to and not caring. She was free and a fresh burst of relief now pounded at her heart.
She opened her mouth to laugh, her eyes directly on the path ahead. Even so, she barely had time to see the car that mounted the kerb, hurtling right towards her.
