Goodreads asked S.Y. Palmer:

How do you get inspired to write?

S.Y. Palmer I am generally mulling over ideas in my head most of the time, but I get some of my inspiration from:
Listening to children speak
Reading children's books
History
The Coast and its many faces
My family and my memories of childhood
