Goodreads asked J. Pedersen:

How do you get inspired to write?

J. Pedersen I had to write. I needed a textbook for learning Cebuano. There was no one.
Contemporary Chinese by Wu Zhongwei was the best textbook, audio, and DVD learning system I had learned from. This is where a lot of my inspiration came from.
