The Inspiration behind Italian Millionaire, Runaway Principessa
I think the inspiration came from the many fairytales I’d read as a child…got my imagination whirring…and I thought why not a modern day fairytale? That’s the fairy dust part of it. But the ‘reality’ part of it came from having heard women speak on how they put their life on hold so their husbands finish their studies, and afterward, it would be the wives’ turn to do… but too often, the wife’s time to study or follow her dreams never materializes, and instead, she kinda loses her dream in place of his. I know that sometimes it happens the other way as well, and the husband puts his life on hold to take care of the wife, the family… but for this story, I focused on Peter’s grueling and demanding medical career to act as the catalyst that tore them apart. But ironically, it was his profession that reunited them. So, the fairytale & the reality mergedd in Italian Millionaire, Runaway Principessa for a HEA!
