Gregory Maguire says his latest book 'is like comfort food'

  Gregory Maguire says his latest book 'is like comfort food' NEW YORK (AP) — Gregory Maguire attributes the first grain of the idea for his new book “A Wild Winter Swan” to “Mary Poppins” author P.L. Travers. He met her 25 years ago as he was getting ready to publish the hugely popular “Wicked," written from the perspective of the witches in Oz. “We talked about fairy tales that we loved and mythology that we were attracted to, and when the subject of Hans Christian Andersen came up she said, ‘Well, there's that boy with one wing,'" (from “The Wild Swans.”) 'Give him something to do.'" Maguire says he hung onto that nugget for 24 years until last year when he was transferring decades of handwritten journals to the computer.

MailOnline exclusively revealed in August that the One Direction heartthrob and his girlfriend had become engaged after dating for two years.

Liam popped the question with a dazzling diamond ring that set him back an eye-watering £3 million.

News of their engagement has remained under wraps largely because the big proposal took place during lockdown.

The couple's engagement stands in stark contrast to rumours circulating back in February, when sources had claimed that they'd quietly gone their separate ways.

However, a source close to the lovebirds told MailOnline at the time that they were 'definitely still a couple and are very happy together'.

The friend explained they were taking their romance off social media, adding: 'Maya and Liam are definitely still a couple and are very happy together.

'Both have been taking time off social media lately and enjoying each other's company away from the spotlight.'

Such were their efforts in enjoying their romance in private that the pair weren't seen in public together for several months, only being spotted this summer.

In June, they united in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests in London, holding hands and donning black ensembles as they walked among the crowds.
