Goodreads asked Stuart G. Yates:

How do you get inspired to write?

Stuart G. Yates Whoa...I don't know! I sound an idiot don't I, but I honestly do not know. It's something I've always wanted to do. I remember when I was 13, sitting in my school classroom, and, during an English lesson, the teacher, dear old Tony Clarke, walking around asking everyone what they were reading. The boy in front of me, can't remember his name, something Mason...anyway, Mr Clarke asked him if he ever read his dad's books. I perked up. His dad wrote books! My I started thinking...Wouldn't it be fantastic to write books, get them published, have someone, somewhere read one of mine in a classroom one day...I love writing, telling stories, etc. Always have. And now, that's what I do. Not to any great success, but I keep trying! I just love writing. It would be nice if more people shared my stories, but hey, selling books is secondary to the sheer buzz of creating.
