Goodreads asked Cynthia Ogren:

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

Cynthia Ogren The idea for Beautiful Monsters came to me as a result of society's preoccupation with celebrity culture. And what better place to explore this than the brittle glass stage of Hollywood? I explore two themes in the book. First, I challenge the concept that fame, wealth, celebrity, and/or beauty equate to happiness for individuals. I also explore the idea of karmic love. What do we do when we're magnetically drawn to someone who might be totally wrong for us? Are relationships fated?
