Goodreads asked Laqueisha Malone:

How do you get inspired to write?

Laqueisha Malone My inspiration came from reading I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Dr Maya Angelou. I cried and felt very connected to her story. Hearing her speak her poems and hearing other people recite them made me want to write poetry.

Nikki Turner inspired me to write fiction novels after reading A Hustler's Wife. I have been on the go ever since.
