Goodreads asked Patrick W. O'Bryon:

How do you get inspired to write?

Patrick W. O'Bryon I dictated my first book to my mother when I was four years old. "Rusty and the Little Star." I still have the illustrated version I put to paper a year later, saved by my beloved kindergarten teacher Miss Martin and returned to me shortly before her death. My inspiration comes from many decades of travel and expanding horizons, both personal and global. My parents exposed all eight children to frequent trips across the country, and the moment I finished undergraduate studies I was off on my own to see the European world which had so influenced my father.
