Web Extras: Jill Gregory's 1985 Article From Romantic Times Issue No. 22

In the spring of 1985, Romantic Times published issue No. 22, in which romance writers revealed their “intimate secrets.” Among these authors was Jill Gregory, who at the time had just published her fourth novel, My True and Tender Love. This story was a first for Gregory; it was the first time she wrote a sequel and was challenged with putting her characters through another believable heartache that would lead them to a second happy ending. Gregory shared with RT readers back in 1985 a pivotal moment of inspiration from a research trip to San Diego that defined the plot of her first sequel. Below is Gregory's original article, as it appeared in Romantic Times. Enjoy this blast from the past!
