The beginnings of the idea of Cosplay Killer started in the back of my brain ever since I wrote The Grasmere trilogy. I knew I wanted to write a full M/M cosy mystery series with an established couple. There were just other stories to write first, so I let this one percolate for a while.
Inspiration came from a number of places, and I thought it would be fun to share some of them for you.
– Hamilton and Six: The Musical.
I’m not sure which came first–Cosplay Killer or my new obsession with Hamilton and Six: The Musical. But they’re definitely intertwined.
My vision for Dannel and Osian was of two men passionate about video games, the theatre, movies, and cosplaying their favourite characters. It’s something I hope to explore further as the series grows.
– Video Games
– Air Ambulance/Ambulance shows
There are a number of the shows out of the UK. My hubby and I watch them religiously. I’ve had friends who are paramedics who talk about burn out. I knew I wanted one of the MCs in the series to explore that concept.
– Covent Gardens
The image above is one I found while looking for something else. And it sparked something in me about where they lived.
If you’re an author, where do you find inspiration for your books?
One thought on “What inspires you?”
So far, my inspiration for books comes from nature- that is how two of my books got their inspiration.
But the 3rd, that just came out of the blue
Here are other things that inspire me (may not necasailry related to books)- God, my family and friends, and Musical Theatre characters. Even my own characters inspire me
