Goodreads asked R.W. Mitchell:

How do you get inspired to write?

R.W. Mitchell It's different between my books for adults and children. For inspiration for my adult novels I use real life (usually my family and friends) I take something real that has happened and either simply retell it or embellish it so the reader enjoys it more.
For my children's books I delve into the world of fantasy and get inspiration from classic fairytales. I love the simplicity of good vs evil.
