Goodreads asked D. Jean Quarles:

How do you get inspired to write?

D. Jean Quarles I'm lucky in that inspiration finds me. I'm inspired when I'm out shopping by interactions that I notice. I'm inspired by the world of nature. But mostly I'm inspired by conversations that I overhear - so don't sit down near me in a restaurant because I'm probably taking notes.
