Kelly Farmer (she/her) has been writing romance novels since junior high. In those days, they featured high school quarterbacks named Brad who drove Corvettes and gals with names like Desireé because her own name is rather plain.

It took me 20 years, double-digit manuscripts (not counting the ones I started but didn't finish!), and about 200 rejections before selling my first book. Believe in your work and your words.

Games where they face one another for the gold medal, particularly at the Olympics, are always exciting (and nerve-wracking as a fan). I thought it'd be a fun enemies to lovers story to have national team rivals become teammates in the pro women's league.

I was also inspired by real-life couples with cross-border romances. Several former members of the US and Canadian national teams are married. Watching those games must be nerve-wracking for them!

Unexpected Goals features Canadian goalie Maisy Goode and American goal scorer Jen Donato. They had a controversial run-in at the last Olympics that people are talking about.
