My books are often inspired by my children (I know how cheesy this sounds). What they do on a daily basis, how they interact with the world around them, their achievements, stories, misbehaviours, views and mishaps often make for a riveting read.
The other source of inspiration for me is nature. There’s so much we can learn from nature. I’ve had good ideas from being outside with the dogs, going for a walk, to the beach or the park. Inspiration literally surrounds me.
The third place where my inspiration comes from is during my sleep. I dream stories and plot lines while I sleep. They are so vivid and real, by the time I wake up most of the story is figured out and I have enough energy to write it out.
My life and everyone in it is inspirational to me. Talking to others, playing music, getting out there is bound to spark an idea.
We all have a story to tell. What is your story?
What inspires you?
