Nancy Knox asked Susan Mallery:

Do you ever put family or friends names in your books?

Susan Mallery Hi, Nancy. Yes, I do... and sometimes I put readers' names in my books. Whenever I do a book signing, I have a slip of paper at my side so I can write down interesting names. That's how I came up with Dellina's name. Sometimes, too, I ask my Facebook friends ( to suggest first names, and then I give the character the last name of the reader who suggested the name I choose.
