How Did You Come up with the Idea?

Question:
      If you don’t mind me asking how did you come up with the Alice Books idea? Did it pop in to your head in a random place at a random time or did you sit at a desk every morning until it came into your head & onto the paper?
Phyllis replied:
 
I had been thinking about writing a novel about a young motherless girl who is looking for a role model.  But after “The Agony of Alice” was published, so many readers wanted more, and reviewers suggested I write more, that I began to think about a series.  I told my editor I would write one if Alice could grow a little older in each book, so I wouldn’t be stuck in a sit-com, and she agreed.
