Goodreads asked K.L. Stockton:

How do you get inspired to write?

K.L. Stockton In 2013 I was made redundant, whilst looking for another job I did a lot of reading. I read three books one after another which I was not impressed with. I actually thought "I can do better than that", a few weeks later I woke up remembering a dream, it stayed with me for three days (very unusual for me as I rarely remember dreams) anyway the 'dream' in my imagination progressed and various scenes developed, so much so it started to give me brain ache (not a headache) with everything bouncing around, I picked up a pen and started to write what was in my head, five note books later, and the story was not finished, I decided to type up what I had written. It was then that I realised I had a novel on my hands.
