Goodreads asked Margaret Dilloway:

How do you get inspired to write?

Margaret Dilloway I notice lots of details others tend to overlook; in another life I might be a detective! (Except I don't like guns, or odd hours, or violence). So I notice things, and connections, and file them away for later. I might see a strange-looking van and get the idea for a whole book because I think of a story behind it.
