Libby Campbellabout this book: • Why did you write this book?
Those who have read the Simon in Charge series may remember her as the realtor who sold Simon and Sadie their Vancouver mansion. When she waltzed into that book, sassy and confronting, I had to know more about her. The only way to do that was to write her story. It seemed clear to me from Ingrid's behaviour in Sadie Says I Do, that she had some deep problems, definitely some that involved alcohol. Plus so many families these days have been touched by the destructive force of substance abuse, I wanted to tell at least one such story with a happy ending.
• Trusting Ingrid is longer than any of your other books, isn't it?
True. Almost twice as long. In fact when I was writing it, I tried to think of ways to shorten it but I couldn't because Ingrid is a complex, troubled woman from a difficult background. Some stories take longer than others.
• Are there any other way that writing this book was different from your others?
Other than the sheer length of it, the editing process was quite unusual. I was on an extended road trip with my Leading Man when my editor's comments reached me. We were in Jackson Wyoming in a small, dark motel room with last century wiring. I was feeling physical cramped at the tiny built in desk and wrenched the extension cord to try to get more elbow room. I knocked my water glass which spilled over my computer. My reflexes were fast and I dried it with a towel and continued to work. Or tried to work. Ha. Within minutes my keyboard and mouse were useless. My motherboard was fried.
• Where did the title come from?
Like all the books in the Romancing the Coast series, it's meant to have a number of interpretations. Ingrid has to trust herself. Lachlan has to trust her. Ingrid has to learn to trust Lachlan, to trust other people. She's been a lone wolf her entire life until she meets Lachlan. What he wants from her is a big ask.
