Sounds like a simple question.
Life is filled with inspiration. Human existence and the stories emanating in my mind, should be told.
I love road trips better than plane rides. Check out some of my pictures below. These are samples of scenic vistas and intrigues that help create plot ideas in my mind. My writer’s brain is in high gear whenever I travel.
News headlines provide much inspiration. In Love Knows, Seth Chandler worked for a human rights agency on the frontlines of the refugee crisis in Greece. The heartbreaking story of the toddler whose body washed ashore was seared in my memory. I wanted to weave it into the story.
Another piece of news headlines I was inspired by were the groundbreaking reports known as the Panama Papers. Seth’s arrest as part of a multistate investigation into nefarious, corrupt business practices of the family law firm was partially based off this international scandal.
Some events were drawn from life experiences and observations. As a writer, I revel in studying people, the human condition, and the vast complexity of existence.
