Sheila Claydonabout this book: When I started writing the third book of my When Paths Meet series, I already had a lot of characters from the previous books who were going to be part of the story, I just wasn't sure how. I did have one link though, and that was the hero. He had already featured very briefly in Book 2 but when I wrote about him I knew he was going to have a much bigger part in the future. Making him the hero narrowed down the background for the story too because it had to take place where he lived and worked…so was I going to 'find' my heroine in the same place or was I going to have to import her?
I was still wrestling with the plot when I went on holiday to Lanzarote and while I was there I discussed it with an interested friend and, as I talked about my dilemma, all became clear. I was going to import my heroine and she was going to have a nursing background.
Happy that I no longer had a problem, I relaxed into some holiday reading. Instead of reading the books on my kindle, however, I chose some from the library on the complex where I was staying. Although these were picked completely at random and were by authors I had never read before, each one contained a piece of the information I needed for Saving Katy Gray. The coincidence was amazing and rather wonderful. By the time I returned home the book was more or less fully formed in my head.
I loved writing it because, as well as some new characters, I was writing about old friends…Jodie and Marcus and Izzie and Luke from Mending Jodie's Heart (Book 1), and all of the same plus Jack, Mrs. Tomlins and the Dowager Countess of Faversham from Finding Bella Blue (Book 2). My only sadness was that I couldn't include everyone from both the previous books because it would have made Saving Katy Gray (Book 3) far too long.
All of the books in the When Paths Meet series are stand-alone stories but reading all three books in order offers much, much more.
