On the inspiration behind this work, Carol Rossetti says: "It's something that has been on my mind for a long time because of my own experience as a woman."
"I'm inspired by normal, random people we see everyday," she says. "We all have our stories and I think that's fascinating.
"However, it's something we sometimes take for granted on a daily basis. We make (and face) pointless and mean criticism that brings no good to anyone. That has to stop."
"I like to say that the characters are fictional, but the stories are real," says Rossetti. "Most of my characters are inspired by many people — some of them I know personally and some I don't."
