“Every week, my mailbox explodes with magazines—National Geographic, the New Yorker, O, and People. My mental image of the characters in The Weird Sisters came from an advertisement for a bank. One of the story lines was sparked by a personal essay on being pregnant and dating. When I start a new project, I read magazines, folding down corners and tearing out pages. Flipping back through the clippings reminds me of where my ideas came from, and encourages me to remain open to inspiration no matter the source.”
Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters (Amy Einhorn Books, 2011)
