Goodreads asked Audrey Kalman:

How do you get inspired to write?

Audrey Kalman Inspiration often arrives like a prompt from my unconscious in the form of an image, a phrase, a title, or a scrap of dialogue. I'll use that as a jumping off point to get me into a story, which can lead in completely unanticipated directions. A short story I wrote last year, for example, took off from the title: "Before There Was a Benjamin." I didn't know when I jotted the title down that it would end up being about a mother struggling with raising an autistic son.
