Goodreads asked SunflowerJ:

How do you get inspired to write?

SunflowerJ I wanted to tell a story about a family going through the motions, then life hits (very hard) and they must all cope. I wanted to bring in aspects that are unheard of in most books, sch as the priest and the nun's encounter with each other. As far as over all inspired to write, I started when I was really young. I wrote poems and short stories, which eventually turned into play writing. As I grew older, my family continuosly encouraged me to write. In fact, my entire family is full of prolific writers (they don't want to do anything with it but the talent is there). One day, I just sat down and started writing a book of poetry. (I haven't released it because I have so many poems but it's called God's Gift to Me.)
