“Where did you get the idea for your book?”

June 22, 2012

“Where did you get the idea for your book?”

Authors only dislike this question when they can’t remember. In my case I have a reminder. There was an ad in a 2009 issue of Vanity Fair. I was on a plane heading for New York. Nearly all of the ads in the magazine featured blondes, but when I came to this one I stopped. “Don’t they look like they would kill you?” I said to my husband in the seat next to me. Then, menacingly, like a 1970s film trailer, “The Blondes…” I tore that ad out and when I got home framed it and placed it above my desk.
