Angie asked Kristin Hannah:

Where do your book story lines come from? Are any of them based off of real life stories?

Kristin Hannah Hi Angie---

My story lines come from desperation. :) No, not really. I am drawn to stories about real events and issues and dilemmas, so often I find inspiration in books, magazines, tv, or research. I am always on the lookout. Especially now. :)
