Imagination – the Writer’s Spark

IMAGINATION IS THE SPARK that ignites a writer, and imagination incubates in the joys and sorrows of life. Imagination is loved by readers, who are taken to new locations, fresh relationships, and exciting discoveries.

His prison is a rich environment for his imagination and I was drawn as much to the workings of the hotel as the interactions between the Count and his many visitors.
