What Inspires You?
Sometimes it’s done on purpose like in the case of vampire novels. The public’s interest in a subject can inspire writers to create works for that popular genre.
I’m in good company with authors like Jacqueline Winspear, Sophie Kinsella, and Robert Clark as well as popular films like Public Enemies with Johnny Depp, The Untouchables, and Bonnie and Clyde
Gangsters, their satin-clothed molls, and bootleg gin have always excited the public’s imagination. Images of men wielding Tommy guns, riding on the sideboards of black sedans as bullets whiz by will always fascinate audiences and readers.
I believe it’s because there’s a strong link between romantic passion and danger. And women respond to the dazzling clothes, the tuxedo-clad men, and the idea that a bootleg cocktail will taste as delicious as it looks.
So what inspires you?
