Author Jacqueline Hopperabout this book: Unlike many wonderful writers, I don't have a set-in-stone method for writing. For one story, I may work on the plot before I take it to the keyboard. For another project, I'll jump in and just start writing. For The Gingerbread House, I began by searching for the protagonist's name. Keren Joel.

From there, I wanted to tell the story of a young woman with a son. But I had to find a reason why it was so important she have a child. That's when I figured out that this woman—a divorcee—has some deep-seated issues, not necessarily from her failed marriage but with something further back. It was vital I interrogate Keren and discover what she had to reveal about her childhood. Then, after a few weeks of grilling, she finally relented and 'told me' she'd once been kidnapped.

It wasn't good enough for her to admit to that traumatizing event. She needed to heal from it. Her son was a vital part of the story because through him Keren would find healing and love beyond her anxieties.
