I grew up on a literary sweet-tooth's diet of sentimental historical fiction such as What Katy Did, Little Women, and Anne of Green Gables. So you can imagine my astonishment – and enlightenment – when I read a book in which the girl, by her own choice, did NOT end up with the hero. Plus, it was Australian! This book inspired plenty of feverish, late-night scribblings, and took my writing in an entirely new direction.
