Goodreads asked Lee Penney:

How do you get inspired to write?

Lee Penney My ideas comes from a range of sources, even other books. A lot seem to stem from the news.

If I find something interesting, I make a note and will play about with how it can be developed. This can happen over a very long period (years).

Sometimes ideas are a spin on something, flipping an existing plot, or finding a new take.

I'm drawn to lesser known subjects, it's interesting to research and (I like to think) adds to a reader's enjoyment, plus it may teach them something too.
