Inspiration comes in unexpected ways, from a single conversation sometimes, to long standing ideas I wish to share.
If I hit a wall, and realise something isn't working, I take a walk and look to things around me, and find that life just impacts the thought processes and fires up the imagination.
I allow the world to affect my mind.
The hardest step is the first step, when picking up the laptop and starting the process. Writing brings a world of imagination to life in my mind, that I hope to capture in the works I hope you will read.
I take quiet times to daydream and think and let the mind go where it goes.
Everything is a work in progress!
The story doesn't need to be complete in my mind before starting, because the act of writing and juggling ideas brings the same inspiration that caused me to start writing in the first place. It's a positively reinforcing loop!
I seem happier with my later works, so I guess I'm still, or was once, a rather bad writer, but I'm working hard on the dream of a best-seller!

For one brother, it will push him to change the very world.
THE EAST WIND
When Greg met Sarah, he knew that he would stop at nothing to win her heart and overcome all the obstacles which kept them apart. But Greg had scars that were more than skin deep, and Sarah wanted, needed to know all about the man she loved. The tale that follows is a heart-rending evocation of a different time and a life that many would find hard to conceive. A life where, as a child, the one person who should protect you ends up hurting you and those most precious to you, over and over again. As Greg starts to reveal the story to Sarah, he finds that sharing the hurt and the anger can have a cathartic effect. At the centre of it all, there is a woman who will stop at nothing to protect and cherish her children, whatever the consequences to herself.

He practices familiar skills to rid the world of its most unwanted blight. Too good at what he does, he charges towards destiny and an ultimate abhorrent nemesis. An evil threat rooted in the long distant past, an unavoidable threat, that brings an inevitable challenge.
