Goodreads asked Cat Woods:

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

Cat Woods I am currently working on a middle grade novel for NaNoWriMo. The title is Adison Knickerbocker and the Cirque of Quirks.

Basically, I was driving home after a visit to see my nieces and nephew and was thinking about how much they had changed and grown. Each with their own distinct personalities. I what iffed. What if their talents and passions were magnified to the point of super powers?

I began jotting down ideas, and before long, I had an entire novel plotted out with quirky characters who hooked up with a traveling circus to...duh, duh, the world.
