Goodreads asked Melanie Rodriguez:

How do you get inspired to write?

Melanie Rodriguez Dreams are the major inspiration for me. That's how both CHILD OF BLACKWEN and SHADOW WALKER came into fruition. And the characters! Giving them a way to voice their adventures is enriching for me.

I'll also mention that I've been a major gamer since childhood. A lot of times I found myself imagining how the story would have went if a character or an action went a different way. When I run into the dreaded writer's block, I actually go to play video games before anything else to help unlock my mind.
