Goodreads asked S.M. Mala:

How do you get inspired to write?

S.M. Mala Everything around me. Speaking to people, listening to music, talking to my friends. I find that it is sometimes just seeing someone, who I don't know, and the story appears in my head. Also, when I'm currently working on a book, half way through it I start thinking about the next one which is a pain as I'm itching to start it!
