Wendy Kalthoff asked Susan Mallery:

WhAt inspired your fools gold series? What are some of your influences and favorite writers? R

Susan Mallery Debbie Macomber and I were talking (love her!), and she told me that I should write a series about a town instead of a series about a family, as I'd been doing. I thought that was genius, because then the series can be longer than just 3 or 4 books. I wanted to create the town someplace that had all four seasons. A place that got snow in the winter but not oppressive amounts of it. I was born and raised in California, so the Sierras felt like the perfect spot.
