This story came to me while waiting for Taco Bell, two days after Valentine’s Day in 2011.
My husband and I were talking eighties movies, and I’m still of the opinion that Duckie should have ended up with Ringwald in the movie, Pretty In Pink.
I wanted to write the story from the perspective of the best friend, who got dumped for the hot guy - even though Jameson is a bit of a hottie himself.
After growing up around boy cousins, I really wanted to do a guy point-of-view, and that’s how Jameson started.
Sky was completely unintentional. I just wanted to give him a distraction, and she ended up being a LOT more than just distraction. It was really fun to tell a story of a girl with Native Alaskan roots.
