How do you pick which characters we meet in the Fool's Gold Books to give their own story in a later book? Do you have a system you follow or is it just by chance?
Hi, Miccilina! Usually, when a character is introduced, I already know if I'm going to give him or her a romance in the future. Not always, though. Madeline first appeared in ALL SUMMER LONG as a failed volunteer firefighter. Then she worked at Brew-haha for a little while. It wasn't until she started working for Isabel at Paper Moon that I thought I really wanted to see her find her forever love. She's going to fall in love next year at Christmas. :)
