Describe the first time you pictured Lucy Kincaid in your head? Lucy was a very minor character in one of my earliest books, the much younger sister of my heroine.

In my mind (and my very first, toss-away draft), I showed a bit of Kate’s life in Manhattan—including that one momentous day when the restaurant where she’d worked for two years shuttered (embezzlement), she lost her tiny, homey apartment (gone condo), and she broke off…
