Goodreads asked Nick Marsden:

How do you get inspired to write?

Nick Marsden I love music. If I'm unsure what to write, I listen to the music that puts me in the mood of the story I'm writing. For The Legacy of Shatara, it was "The Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance. For The Never-Born, it was the first 4 albums of "The Amory Wars" by Coheed and Cambria, especially "No World for Tomorrow".
