Goodreads asked Terry Baker Mulligan:

How do you get inspired to write?

Terry Baker Mulligan I always enjoyed writing assignments in school. But I was inspired to write my first book, "Sugar Hill," when I moved to St. Louis from NYC. I discovered that people in STL had a monolithic and negative view of Harlem, where I grew up. I vowed to write a book to set the record straight.
