Goodreads asked Patrick Matthews:

How do you get inspired to write?

Patrick Matthews I'm inspired by my readers. I love the idea of sharing an adventure with a reader. Every time I start to slow down, or start to doubt what I'm doing, I think back to the adventures that I've had reading books.

Through books, I've adventured on Mars, The WitchWorld, Pern, Skaith, and hundreds of other worlds. I love the idea that I could be the person providing those adventures for other people.
