Many things inspire me. Usually something I hear, i.e. a piece of music, a news headline, a book title, a pattern on fabric. I am very sensory - the world stimulates me and charges my brain, which is equally left- and right-brained. I can combine science/math/logic with the artsy/big-picture/intuitive side of things and I think that brings real balance to my writing.
