Goodreads asked Dan E. Arndt:

How do you get inspired to write?

Dan E. Arndt When it hits me, it hits me hard. I wrote the original draft of the novel in 13 days.

Other inspiration comes from talking with colleagues, reading more books, and listening to music.

My family also helps to encourage me to write as much as possible. The same goes with my editor, Andrea Reynolds, who constantly pushes for the next book (she likes my style of writing).
