Goodreads asked Jill Hand:

How do you get inspired to write?

Jill Hand Ideas spring up from conversations I overhear in diners, or things in the news. I'm reading Dickens' Dictionary of London 1888 right now, and you wouldn't believe the stuff that's in there. It's given me several ideas that are sort of backed up in the runway in my mind, for future use.
