Goodreads asked Mary-Jean Harris:

How do you get inspired to write?

Mary-Jean Harris Inspiration can come to me from anywhere, sometimes from other books I'm reading, both fiction and nonfiction like philosophy, or sometimes just when I'm on a walk looking at the clouds. Once you become fully entrenched in the world of the story you're writing in, I find that it's easy to think of new things to write about and create new and creative elements of the story.
