Goodreads asked Barbara Kent Lawrence:

How do you get inspired to write?

Barbara Kent Lawrence I'm not sure - just happens. I got interested in writing about my British family from looking at a photograph of my mother and uncle taken in December 1939 just after she stopped acting in films and on the London stage to join the Voluntary Air Detachment, and my uncle left for France with the British Expeditionary Forces. They looked so young, innocent, and frankly beautiful that thinking about what they would soon face effected me deeply.
