The idea for the Verindon Trilogy came to me this way:
My husband thinks cheesy pick-up lines are funny, not that he ever uses them on anybody. (Lucky for him!) One day when we were driving to the Sunshine Coast for a holiday, he was trying to make me laugh by telling me his favourites. I was trying to think of some too, but I’m not good at that kind of thing. The only one I could think of was the line where the guy says to the girl, ‘you are the only reason I was put on this planet’. As I thought about that, I started to think about what it might mean if someone said that to a girl and meant it literally. He really was only on that planet because of her. Before I knew what was happening, the story was swirling around in my head and I spent most of our holiday thinking about it.

I love Beauty and the Beast. It's my favourite fairy tale, so I always like to read re-tellings of this story.
I was a little concerned with this one in its early stages, as it didn't grab me straight away and I found some aspects of it unengaging. Ho
