Goodreads asked Nel Ashley:

How do you get inspired to write?

Nel Ashley Inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places. Ideas tend to just pop into my head, some are worth following up others don't always result in a viable idea for a novel. Once an idea presents itself it is very difficult to shake off and I find myself compelled to write it down. As the idea rolls around my head scenes and conversations appear which all get put into a notebook and written up later.
