January 2008 - Behind the Scenes with
This year for our Monthly Feature we want to take you "behind the scenes" and
give you a glimpse of some part of what went into the books you're going to
read this year. So each month you will find one or more Harlequin Presents
authors talking about some aspect of what helped them get that book on paper.
It might be the idea that began the story. It might be a research trip or
an interview or who knows what! Being a writer means getting to do all sorts
of interesting stuff and meeting all sorts of interesting people. It also means
finding ideas where other people might not. So stay tuned . . .
Our January "Behind the Book" feature comes from Melanie Milburne. Bought
For Her Baby is being released this month.
If you have a suggestion for a monthly topic, send it to us via our feedback
book is called Bought for Her Baby and the inspiration came
from reading an autobiography of a young bookish high achiever
who had just one taste of heroin from a boyfriend. She became
totally hooked and as a result worked on the streets and
in several brothels to feed her habit. It was a heartbreaking
read as it made me realise how much her loving family suffered.
She had a lovely sister and a mum and dad who loved her so
unconditionally. They would have done anything to get their
lovely daughter back and I am glad to say they did in the
end do so. My heroine Charlotte had exactly the same love
for her sister Stacey and when Damon, the Greek man she had
had a brief but disastrous affair with turns up she has an
even bigger surprise in store for him. Her daughter Emily
is her whole world and the thought of Damon taking her from
her given her sister's on going addiction is heart wrenching.
I hope you enjoy their journey to find their love and the
forgiveness that brought about Stacey's return to health
