Goodreads asked Lois Duncan:

How do you get inspired to write?

Lois Duncan I was born "inspired to write." It's all I was ever any good at. I started submitting stories to magazines when I was ten and made my first sale at thirteen. WRITTEN IN THE STARS is a collection of stories I wrote and sold to magazines during my teens. I hope those stories (along with my accounts of what was going on in my life when I wrote them) will help other young writers learn to utilize their own life experiences, even when writing fiction.
