One Ranch, Two Sons and a Contest, what could be more fun?
That was the question a friend of mine asked me one night when I was trying to come up with a new historical book idea. I popped back, two mail-order brides who want their men to fall in love with them and not because of some silly contest their mother cooked up. And so Taming the Texas Rancher was born.
I'm often asked how I come up with book ideas. My answer is always the same, ideas are everywhere.
But, I'll be honest my best idea generator is my husband. He starts the ideas rolling and I find myself scooping them up. Often they don't look anything like what he had planned, I keep telling him he needs to write his own books, but I love that he's willing to put the ideas out there.
That's just one example of how I come up with ideas.
What inspires ideas in you?
