Goodreads asked Peter L. Bensen:

How do you get inspired to write?

Peter L. Bensen The surest way to inspire myself is to go to a concert, best is classical - jazz works, so does choral music. Also good are well written TV shows. I don't often feel the need to sink into the shows world, rather it adds to an ocean of ideas that I can tap into. But the books that I have written spring from a person I have seen (but do not know) that I find interesting. Can be just a glance, like a kid in my daughter's christmas concert. He or she can morph into this character that blooms into a full character and from there I cloth it with plot and story.
