Lou Banks asked Susan Mallery:

I know you ask your fans for different names of people, places and things but what do you do to get an idea for a book or series.

Susan Mallery Hi, Lou Ann. Ideas come from everywhere. I do enjoy asking my fans on Facebook (www.facebook.com/susanmallery) to help name people and places, but I don't ask them for story ideas because that can get tricky. I love coming up with story ideas. I do meet twice a year with a group of writer friends, a plot group, and we help each other brainstorm books. It's a lot of fun - sometimes we're screaming with laughter - but it's hard work, too. Very intense.
