- Where do you get your ideas? Spoiler alert: ideas are the easy part. Making them into a whole book is hard. I pull ideas from all over. I watch videos, read magazines, talk to people who aren't like me or have cool jobs or life experience, I daydream, I people watch, and I ask what-if a lot. What if that hadn't happened? What if that had worked? What if she'd spoken to him, or made a difference choice? What if she'd lived, or died, or we invented something to do that impossible thing? What if they'd met, and because of that, she made a different decision? What then? And what then? Somewhere in there is the seed of something I want to make into a whole story.
