Hi Amy - thanks for the question.
Coming up with ideas is fairly easy, but finding an idea that's interesting enough to justify the research required to support it is a bit harder. Once I have the idea, I normally frame the beginning and ending of the book, then the story becomes what happens in between. That's where the original idea changes. Sometimes characters take on a life of their own, and tend to go in directions different from what I originally planned.(less)
