Goodreads asked Becky Wallace:

How do you get inspired to write?

Becky Wallace There is inspiration everywhere! When I was in NYC in September, I went to a restaurant on Broadway before I saw Matilda. There were two police officers eating dinner at the table behind mine, and I couldn't keep my eyes off of them. The older officer had the look of command and experience. His entire right arm was covered in intricate, artistic tattoos, and he wore his hair slicked by like a movie mobster. His partner looked fresh from the police academy with an Abercrombie & Fitch hair cut and a baby face. They couldn't have been more different, yet there was a definite rapport as they talked and laughed over their meal. I couldn't help wondering what their backstories I've decided to make them up. Should be interesting!
