What inspires you? For me, it can be anything, but my biggest inspiration comes from life—things that I’ve seen or experienced. In my latest WIP, which I just wrapped up last night, it’s about the WWII big band, brass and sass which, I’ve brought forward into 2012. In this story, my challenge was to make a trumpet player sexy. In order to do that, I had to research songs with trumpet solos, songs that at one time made women swoon.
Where did my inspiration come from? The Army color guard.
