Giveaway and Guest Post with author Soraya Laneand her book Change

 
Inspiration
 
One of the most common questions I’m asked is where I get my inspiration. It’s a hard question to answer, because I find inspiration everywhere around me, and it’s hard to know where my stories come from. I certainly have an overactive imagination and I’m guessing that most authors do, but sometimes it’s just the simple things that help keep our mind stimulated…
 
Sometimes it’s my surroundings – not a day goes by that I don’t think how lucky I am to live on our small farm, surrounded by our gorgeous animals and with so many trees and plants around us. Often I’m inspired by television shows or movies, and I think that reading and watching television can be fantastic for any author’s imagination. And people are a huge inspiration to me too, from my own family and friends, to overhearing conversations when I’m out or just people watching. I think being out and about, just watching or observing people, can spark something in my mind that helps me keep my characters and writing fresh.
 
How about you? What inspires you on a daily basis?

When her twin sister dies of a mysterious heart condition, Riley King is sent to her grandma’s ranch. But instead of the isolation she’s been aching for, she learns of a family secret that’s been deliberately kept from her, until now.
As if finding out she’s actually a leopard wasn't enough shock for one vacation, Riley meets Hunter Logan … the guy she’s promised to. For life. But Riley has no intention of being told what to do by anyone, certainly not some stubborn, dominant shifter. Even if he can make her purr, her claws are slicing out. Until Riley realizes that not fulfilling her destiny would commit her sister to a life on the other side without her ...

My inspiration is my mom - bad things happen and they happen to good people, but some people still manage to get up in the morning and find something good -

My Aunt has been an inspiration. She went from wild child to parent at 19/20 years of age and she spent 8 years in night school to get her Asso. degree while putting her son through private school. She decided on a dream and went after it by bartending her way through nursing school. She's strong, determined, and does whatever she needs to do to achieve her needs. She's my hero.

My mother was the greatest inspiration in my life. She left friends and family and moved us 3000 miles across country, bought a house and raised my brother and me without any help from anyone. she went to work every day and still made time to come to our school events. She taught me that it is ok to cry, but after you cry, put on your big girl panties and deal with life. There are NO GIMMIES IN LIFE she would often say. "Life is what you make it."
