Be Inspired

I got tagged from Bullish Ink for the "Be Inspired" blog hop. It's all about writers talking about their inspiration and how they put that on the page.

So, here's the plan:
    1.  Answer the following ten questions about a current WIP.
    2.  Tag five other writers and link their blogs so we can all hop over and read their answers.

It's that simple.

Now for the questions:

1.] What is the title of your book?
Since my only published book is a short story, I'm going to use that. The title is "Lost and Found".

2.] Where did the idea for the book come from?
I wish I remembered. I initially wrote it in 1996 to be submitted to a womans magazine. I recently dug it out, updated it and published it as a short story.

3.] What genre would your book fall under?
I guess it would be contemporary fiction although when I started it was supposed to be a romance.

4.] Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Hmmm, Sarah would be played by Amanda Seyfried and Carl would be played by Chris Pine.

5.] What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
After moving from Chicago to rural Baxter Springs, KS, Sarah wonders if the country is any better than the city when her eight year old son, Brian, goes missing.

6.] Is your book published or represented?
It is self-published on Amazon.

7.] How long did it take you to write?
Again, I wish I could remember. I spent a couple of hours editing and updating it recently.

8.] What other books within your genre would you compare it to?
No comment since it's a short story.

9.] Which authors inspired you to write this book?
I've been inspired by way too many authors to even think about singling out just one.

10.] Tell us anything else that might pique our interest in your book.I never intended to make anyone cry, as I said, it was initially supposed to be a romance.

Now for the interesting part, chosing five authors to challenge!

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
