My Heartbeat is a book that did really well. It got very nice reviews, won a prize, and made my publisher happy with me (they sent flowers). All of which made me quite grateful, but also rather astonished. I had set out to write a novel of loyalty and betrayal, but what people responded to was the love triangle between a brother and sister and the boy they both love. It was a good lesson that what matters is the story, not the ideas you have about it.
