Laura asked Colleen Hoover:

From the characters that I have read about in your books, there's always some emotional backstory to them. What inspires you to write them such heartbreaking pasts?

Colleen Hoover I guess I'm just not interested in reading (or writing) a book about a well adjusted couple who encounters no issues. I like for a book to make me feel something and in order for that to happen, there needs to be some emotional drama.
