Inspiration Behind The Fall in Love Checklist

I hope you enjoy reading The Fall in Love Checklist as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The Fall in Love Checklist is a romance, but it’s also a love story about the girls. The women in all of our lives that help us get through the hard times, the super duper awful times, and the worst of the worst.

A little over a decade ago my sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. I went and stayed with her to help take care of her two young children during her surgery and treatments. One day she mentioned that at the hospital there was always a group of women who knitted and chatted while getting their chemo. That was all she said about it, just one sentence. But the image stuck with me all these years. More than a decade later that seed sprouted into a romance novel.

I hesitated at first to write a romance novel about a heroine with breast cancer, but then I said, well why the heck wouldn’t I? We all have hard times, and often the best things come out of what we consider to be the worst.

In the book, I didn’t concentrate on the medical aspect as much as the emotional journey. Medicine changes too rapidly for anything written to stay up to date. However, I did consult a physician during the writing process (thank you Dr. J). Any mistakes are mine and mine alone. 

I hope you enjoy Dany’s journey. She has spunk and turns a hard situation into one full of joy, lots of laughter and fun. Thank you again for reading, I’m grateful for you, your review, and for sharing/recommending this book if you enjoy it.
