Goodreads asked Margaret Barnes:

How do you get inspired to write?

Margaret Barnes My inspiration really comes from wanting to write about the law and lawyers in a way that shows the real drama. I was a barrister for over 25 years and to quote John Grisham 'The greatest dramas occur not on screen or stage but daily in countless courtrooms across this country.' Of course he's talking about the USA but the same applies here, The rules are a little different and our lawyers more restrained but there are the same hopes, the same tears as the quest for justice goes on.
