Goodreads asked Mary Pat Hyland:

How do you get inspired to write?

Mary Pat Hyland Inspiration comes at me 24/7 from every direction. I think the key is being truly observant to what is going on in the world around you. Every stranger you meet has a good story within, if only you are patient enough to draw it out.
