The Spark of a Novel 

I think 99% of authors will say that the question they are asked the most is how they get their inspiration for their books. The answer to that question will vary. Dreams, songs, a driver who cuts you off, your desire to eat a doughnut even though you shouldn’t. In essence LIFE is the main source of anyone who creates.

Wonderwall was book that came out of the blue. I wasn’t planning on writing it in the immediate future. My first novel in the New Adult genre was actually going to be We Used to Be Friends, the now second book in the series. But I’m so happy that Wonderwall got to be the first because is my favorite book to date.

So what sparked the idea for Wonderwall? Was it the song by Oasis? No exactly. It was a song by a band I really never followed or paid attention to, even though the world had gone off-kilter over it. If you guessed One Direction, you are correct. So there I was, going to work, when Story of My Life started to play. (FYI, I get a lot of my ideas on the way to work, I actually see scenes play out in front of me when I should be paying attention to traffic instead). Anyway, back to what I was saying, the song came on and I wondered what would it be like to date a guy in a very popular boy band? And that was the A-HA moment for Wonderwall.

But it wasn’t the very beginning. The A-HA moment was not the Genesis of the story (I’m making s**t up as I go here. Who am I with all these fancy terms?). I can’t pinpoint the time when the little seed came into my mind. “A girl going to live in London on a year long internship at a swanky hotel. She finds love there. It will be complicated”.

I had this idea in the back of my head and then the One Direction song came in, mixed with the seed (maybe the song was the water?) and bang! A-HA moment.

What came next was a series of WHAT IFs questions that helped place Liv and Sebastian’s story in the world of the Love Me, I’m Famous series I’d been brewing for months. Like I stated earlier, I planned to launch the series with We Used to be Friends (Kennedy and Skylar’s story).  Wonderwall was never meant to be part of this series. It was going to be a standalone. But now I cannot envision Love Me, I’m Famous without Liv and Sebastian in it, which proves that sometimes it’s freaking awesome to go off the rails.
