Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss
Dana Marton | Daydreaming
Romance / May 20, 2009

I love a great many things about romance, but I like the fantasy aspect the most. Daydreaming is such a wonderful pastime, isn’t it? And it’s free! I did get to indulge in a big way while writing SAVED BY THE MONARCH. Since I’m scared to death of flying, I make a point to do it at least once a year.

When I travel, I see as people wait for their loved ones at airports, or for strangers holding up signs with names. And since I’m a writer, I see book ideas everywhere… What if someone went on vacation to Europe, to a small kingdom her parents had left behind when she’d been a very young child?

I have first hand experience after watching my own children, but I also did some research by hanging around and learning to understand how my friends interact with their brothers and sisters. Take my friend Shannon’s comment about how one of her brother’s dresses. We were Christmas shopping a few years ago and she talked about how she bought him some decent clothes so he would wear something besides a t-shirt and jeans. It was her subtle way of telling him to grow up. I didn’t realize it, until just this moment but that sort of ended up in The Demon King and I. (Please, don’t tell her.) I watched as another friend interacted with her two sisters. That dynamic was very interesting because the middle sister, my friend, has…
