How Did You Come up with the Idea?

      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.
