It was ten years ago in my kitchen while cooking dinner that the idea of A Lost Woman developed. Immediately, I wrote down the idea in my journal, which I still have today. Unfortunately, shortly after I started writing my first novel, I had to put it on the back burner. I was pregnant with my first child. Fast forward six years, I finally found the time to start writing again. Of course, in those six years a dozen other ideas had developed and been written into my journal.
