Goodreads asked Rosie Allen:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Rosie Allen A friend of mine challenged me to write erotica. I'd never even thought about being a writer (of novels) growing up or even in my adult years. I'd been discussing a book with my friend (who knows I can write) about things that could have been different about it to make it better and she said I should write my own book. I was considering it when I was falling asleep one night and practically had an epiphany... This story just came flooding into my brain. My eyes flew open and I jumped out of bed to go pound around the keyboard to get my thoughts out. Of course they were all over the place, but after I finished and went to sleep, the story was the first thing I thought about when I woke up. I went to my notes and started working things out. It took me about a year of frustration and distraction to write 50,000 words before I took my own advice and forced myself WRITE EVERYDAY and in five weeks, I had another 56,000 words added to the story and a finished novel.
