When I first started to brain storm the plot for "Kisses On A Paper Airplane," I knew I wanted to write a story about a girl who wanted to have the perfect first kiss. Then I had to think about who that person might be. When I was a teenager the guy who was on the cover of the latest issue of Tiger Beat magazine would've been the one I would've chosen. So I looked around at today's pop stars. There were quite a few to choose from -- Justin Bieber, Mike Posner, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles and the rest of the gang from One Direction.
So you can imagine my surprise when I came across this real life news story about Niall Horan (of One Direction) being upset with a fan for posting a photo of him sleeping on a plane. It's thisclose to the plot of "Kisses On A Paper Airplane." Sometimes life is even crazier than fiction.
