I once asked Mary Stewart why she had killed off a major character in her Merlin trilogy. She said that her father had died while she was writing it and she worked out her grief by writing about the death of a loved character. Questions? -- Where did you get the idea? -- How much of it is based on real life? -- How many of the characters are based on people you know? -- Is your book autobiographical? -- How much time do you spend writing? -- How many re-writes did you have to do? -- How did you find a publisher? And on, and on, and on. But you get the idea.
