Goodreads asked Kathy Shuker:

How do you get inspired to write?

Kathy Shuker It's usually people's stories which spark my imagination: something I've heard on the news or read in a newspaper. It's just a starting point from which I develop an idea or a character. And I'm afraid I'm a people watcher. I don't do it consciously most of the time but I tend to notice confrontations, people looking sad or cross or anything unusual in someone behaviour. It gets my imagination going, wondering what the story is behind it.
