Goodreads asked L.M. Batstone:

How do you get inspired to write?

L.M. Batstone I write the story that I want to read. The Pirate's Apprentice was inspired by a National Geographic documentary based on the Whydah's recovery. I was intrigued by the story of how a young boy had become apart of the pirate's crew. After I did all the research I could, I realized there was a story that could be told and decided to tell it.
