Stacey asked Jessica Day George:

I noticed on Goodreads that you often read books by other authors. Do their books influence your own writing? I also wanted to know if you prefer to write trilogies, or is that how your inspiration/storytelling simply plays out?

Jessica Day George Yep, I'm a bookworm, I read all the time! Everything you read influences you as a person, so yes I'm influenced by what I read, and hopefully it influences my writing in a positive way. As for the trilogy thing, that just happens. All my series have started out as single books, then I get ideas for other stories, and it goes from there. Castle Glower won't be a trilogy, though, I just started on book four today.
