Goodreads asked David Hagerty:

How do you get inspired to write?

David Hagerty Most of my fiction starts with real events, such as the killing of a politician's daughter six weeks before election day, which inspired my first published novel. Typically I twist the details to my own ends, but the core of the story is always something true.
