Katria asked L.H. Cosway:

Hi .. I am a new fan of all your works, starting with Painted Faces, Still Life with Strings then with The Nature of Cruelty. How do you come up with these kinds of characters? Where do you get these great plots and ideas?

L.H. Cosway Hi Katria! My book ideas usually come from my own various interests. For instance, I love classical music and that was a big inspiration for Still Life with Strings. I'm also a big fan of fringe artists, which was the driving force behind Painted Faces.
