Inspiration is open ended. It's something that draws you in and makes you think. It's more then something you enjoy-it could be something that frightens you.
'Camouflage' was inspired by the New England landscape, however the story developed into a science fiction. There are frightening elements, but I found it too intriguing to walk away.
When you're inspired by something, you want to explore it-ask questions about it. I wondered what we would do if something extraordinary but deadly was found in the forest. The questions would not leave me and I had to tell the story.
