Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen this yet. Interesting, that last
paragraph about a child's question being what sparked the book's creation.
Same thing for _Howl's Moving Castle_. I wonder if there were any others?
That makes me think of that question authors really hate: "Where do you get
your ideas?" I think often what people want to know is "Where did the germ
of an idea for Book X come from?" I'm very interested in the ideas that get
books started...like Katherine Kurtz having an elaborate dream that turned
into _Deryni Rising_, or Orson Scott Card drawing a very elaborate city map
which led to _Hart's Hope_.
