David Russellabout this book: It is about a young woman's quest for identity through an exotic holiday? I wanted to have a go at writing a romance, because of feeling then free to admit to my own fantasies. This book would be primarily read by women in their 40s. The original draft took me about 6 months to write. I stumbled on the title through the idea of flowers blossoming; if they can, why not a personality? The cover artist and the cover were arranged by my publisher. The hardest part of writing the book was the dialogue; this is my weak point.
I did quite a bit of historical research for it. I learned a lot about my own literary expressiveness from the responses of reviewers. I want to say that I am a literary writer, but am prepared to face the genre fiction area. My work may hold some peripheral position between literary and genre fiction. One of my favourite authors in this connection is Anais Nin.
