Goodreads asked Karen Allendoerfer:

How do you get inspired to write?

Karen Allendoerfer There is usually something bothering me about the way institutions work. I start to imagine how it would better and worse if something were changed. I write about the consequences of that change. I also have characters in my head who don't leave me alone until I write about them.
