Goodreads asked Lynn Austin:

How do you get inspired to write?

Lynn Austin I usually begin with the historical time period and an interesting fact or bit of information from that period. As I research more, I start getting ideas for the various conflicts or incidents that might take place in the story. Then I begin forming my characters in my head and imagining them entering into this time in history.
