Alexandra Potter I've just finished the first draft of my latest book, Love From Paris, which is the second in The Love Detective series.

I don't just sit down and begin to write, and to be truthful I don't know any authors that do. If you plot out your book meticulously, working out the storyline, the characters, the twists and the turns, then when you actually sit down to write you're almost just filling in the gaps and you know exactly where the story will go. As for where do ideas come from? That's the 64 million dollar question :) I find inspiration from all kinds of things, my own experiences, those of my friends, travelling (this is a huge inspiration for me), things I see or read about... inspiration and ideas are everywhere, you just have to look for them!

“...when you decide you want to be with someone forever, you want forever to start right now.”
Alexandra Potter, Do You Come Here Often?

“Forget men, I want to marry my MacBook. It’s dependable, reliable and you can even go shopping with it.”
Alexandra Potter, You're The One That I Don't Want

“Everyone dreams of finding their soulmate. It's a universal quest. All over the world millions of people are looking for their true love, their amore thier ame soeur, that one special person with whom they will spend the rest of their life.

And I'm no different.

Except it doesn't happen for everyone. Some people spend their whole life looking and never find that person. It's the luck of the draw.

If, by some miracle, you're lucky enough to meet the ONE, whatever you do, don't let them go. Because you don't get another shot at it. Soulmates aren't like buses there's not going to be another one along in a minute. That's why they're called, "THE ONE".”
Alexandra Potter, You're The One That I Don't Want
