Very rarely do I find inspiration from other authors. I guess it is because I see my work as unique. Somebody once said: 'the best way to get people interested in your books is to think of a recent popular film that is similar to your work and then tweet out if you love this film then you will love this book.' No matter how hard I tried I couldn't think of a film that was remotely similar. The more I thought about it the more I asked myself why do I need to be similar to another author, after all did Picasso sell his work by saying his Art was similar to another artist? No, his work was unique.
