Sonia asked Amy Harmon:

I just discovered your books and I must say I'm in awe of your writing. Where do you get your inspiration for your stories?

Amy Harmon Inspiration comes from everywhere! It's hard to pin down exactly where each idea is born, simply because an idea is simply a seed that grows and branches off into other ideas. I do try to write original plot lines that haven't been rehashed by a million different authors, but I think the true magic in a book is creating memorable characters. As my son once said about SE Hinton's The Outsiders, I love these characters so much, I don't care what they do. We fall in love with characters, not plot lines. xxoo
