How did you get the idea for the story?

Interview with Brandi Kosiner


--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.
ALR is about college sweethearts who get engaged, and then are split by traumatic events. They meet again, sparks fly and rekindle love.

--How did you get the idea for the story?
I witnessed some ethnic conflict in Nigeria while I lived there, and had often wondered how this might affect a budding romantic relationship. I’ve wanted to explore heartbreak too. So this was an opportunity to combine both. The major arch over my stories though, is to follow the Her/heroine through a loving relationship through which they can discover themselves and become better people at the end.

--Which character would you most/least like to have dinner with?
I would most like to have dinner with Stanley, he is my type of guy. At a point in the book, Kevwe refers to him as Mr. Hugo Boss, lol. I wouldn’t like to meet Kevwe one on one though. He’s my main character but his mind reading powers will freak me out.
