Goodreads asked John Chadwell:

How do you get inspired to write?

John Chadwell Often some minor incident will inspire me. I once read in the L.A. Times a story about an old cowboy in Nevada, who kills the town bully. He ends up going to Folsom Prison. He finds out his wife is dying and tries to get permission to visit her. From that small article I wrote my sixth novel, "Last Sunrise."
