Sarah asked Rhys Bowen:

Hi Rhys! I love your "Royal Spyness" series, and I was curious as to how the concept of a character like Georgie formed in your mind. Royal, yet penniless. Clever, attractive, and resourceful, but lacking self-esteem and adorably klutzy. Where did she "come from?"

Sorry I didn't see this question sooner. I've just had eye surgery! I thought it would be fun to create a really improbable sleuth--one sheltered from the world yet penniless, so I could write a satire of the British class system. That's how it started and she just formed as I wrote her
