Ideas quite often just pop into my head, usually when I am driving or travelling somewhere. I think this is because I’m focused on one thing…then my brain opens up and that’s when the ideas come!
When I am at work or home with the kids I don’t have a moment to think. Quite often the ideas I have for stories are based on something that happened in real life. My daughter Maggie, who is a bit of a character, has inspired lots of ideas!
