True Confessions about Made-Up Things

  • Karin has named several books after songs, including Substitute for Love (Madonna), Stepping Stone (Duffy), Unforgettable (Nat King Cole), Wild Things (Cris Williamson) and The Kiss that Counted (Catie Curtis).

  • Making Up for Lost Time was named more for a life situation (Karin’s) than as a metaphor. It remains the novel written in the shortest time span. And the metaphor worked out anyway.
