According to Wright:
I was drawn to Jo principally because of my admiration for a woman who can successfully combine motherhood and a creative career.
Jo told me that she had been drawn to my work because of the tiny paintings that I had done of a family of people with red hair.
She confessed to sharing a fascination for people with red hair, which any readers familiar with the Weasley family in the Harry Potter books should not be surprised about.
