And that is how the The Million Pound Marriage Deal was born.
I had three songs that I played over and over while I was dreaming this book into being (and while I was writing it):
* Jewel’s Foolish Games, which was Sophie’s theme song
* Robert Palmer’s Simply Irresistible, which was Will’s theme song
* Morgan Evan’s Kiss Somebody, which came on the radio the first time I was idly dreaming about this story
If you watch the film clip of Foolish Games, you’ll see where my inspiration came for Sophie’s love of horses. ;-)
The expression on her face in the final seconds of the clip gets to me every single time.
I have a Pandora charm for each of my books, and this is the one I chose for The Million Pound Marriage Deal. A piggy bank. Isn’t that red bow the cutest? It seemed appropriate given that Sophie is saving all her pennies so desperately.
This is Cawdor Castle, and I grabbed this photo from their website…so if you want to read more about the Castle (and it’s link to Macbeth!) just click on the link. :-)
So that's a little bit about the book! If you have any questions about the book or my process, ask away and I'll do my best to answer them. :-)
The Million Pound Marriage Deal is on shelves now, and available at all of the usual places.
