Goodreads asked Susan Klaus:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Susan Klaus I have two recent books that came out this summer. Flight of the Golden Harpy, a fantasy published by Tor Books is an adult read. The idea came when I was a movie extra on the set of Oceans Eleven with Brad Pitt and saw him get mobbed when he walked on the set. My novel is about a beautiful winged creature called a harpy who is being hunted as a game trophy. It's an animal's point of view of mankind and the woman who loves him. My other novel, Shark Fin Soup is a thriller about one man's attempt to stop the fin trade and save sharks and the ocean. The idea came from watching TV coverage of shark finning. I became so furious, like my protagonist, that I wrote the story. It's the second novel in the Christian Roberts series and the sequel to Secretariat Reborn that was released last year, although, you don't have to read the first book to enjoy and understand it.
