Goodreads asked S. Chris Shirley:

How do you get inspired to write?

S. Chris Shirley My best ideas hit me when I least expect it. They can come from a dinner conversation, a news article, or from just being keenly aware of what’s going on around me. For example, the inspiration for my debut novel, Playing by the Book, came while sitting in a church pew and listening to a sermon. You never know where inspiration will strike.
