Author Dianne Harmanabout this book: My husband I were attending a wedding where our son was the best man. We were staying at a boutique hotel in Palm Springs, California which had been renovated. It was 106 degrees out and the air-conditioning was perfectly silent. The heater in our home sounds like a truck rumbling through the house when it's on. I remember turning to my husband and why, I'll never know, saying "What if someone invented a 'feel good' drug and put it in the air-conditioning and everyone felt good all the time?" He said, "There's your book." We went to lunch at The Blue Coyote restaurant. There was the title. I decided it was meant to be.

That was the genesis of the book. That night we went to dinner and saw a priest with a huge gold cross on. It was the time of Jerry Sandusky and Penn State. A defrocked priest became a character. At the wedding dinner the following night, we sat next to a couple who owned gold mines in Brazil. They became characters. I talked to a very wealthy woman who had just become widowed. She became a character. And so it went. The book and the characters began to write themselves. I would often cry when I was writing it because such and such was happening. I remember my husband calling home and hearing me cry, was quite concerned. I told him about something that had just happened in the book. He told me that since I was the author, I could do anything I wanted. No, I couldn't. The book and the characters took on a life of their own. I was simply the chronicler. So I guess one of the best things about my writing is that I get to read a book as well!
