Hi Katie, I think life inspires me. I see and hear things all the time that make me go, "What a great story!"

I also love words. I find truth when I'm writing or reading. It's cool to write a line for a character and suddenly realize there's a truth in it!

I'm inspired by other good books or a good movie. I've been inspired by TV shows like Gilmore Girls or Numb3rs. What do they have in common you ask? Community. So I think I try to bring that in each of my stories too.

This is eye opening
The Assassination of the Archduke by Greg King
“Today it is easy to look back upon the years before 1914 with a kind of gauzy, romantic nostalgia. It seems a simpler time, when innovation enthralled and peace predominated. The truth, though, was somewhat different. All major powers had fought in at least one war since 1860, usually several, and the modern arms race had begun in earnest; incursion, revolution, revolt, and repression were rife. The fifty years preceding that golden summer of 1914 witnessed constant violence. Assassination was common: The sultan of Turkey was killed in 1876; American President James Garfield and Tsar Alexander II of Russia in 1881; President Sadi Carnot of France in 1894; the shah of Persia in 1896; the prime minister of Spain in 1897; the empress of Austria in 1898; King Umberto of Italy in 1900; American President William McKinley in 1901; King Alexander and Queen Draga of Serbia in 1903; Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich of Russia in 1905; King Carlos of Portugal and his son Crown Prince Luis Felipe ...more Greg King
