Goodreads asked Jessie Franklin:

How do you get inspired to write?

Jessie Franklin I've loved reading, watching, hearing, and telling stories my entire life. Inspiration can come from almost anywhere. Sometimes I read something in the news or on a blog that sparks an idea or I'll see a photograph and think "that needs to be a novel." I also love speaking to people and getting to know them. People around you have fascinating stories and characteristics. Mostly, I think you just need to love storytelling and make yourself not be afraid to go for it.
