Goodreads asked Robin Maxwell:

How do you get inspired to write?

Robin Maxwell I read non-fiction in the areas that fascinate me, and biographies of historical figures that have most changed the course of human history. Then I read more and more and develop an idea of how those people would really have moved through their lives - their loves, their fears, their dreams, their follies. Finally I pick up a pen (yes, a pen!) and write my first draft on yellow pads.
