We love learning about what inspires authors when they write. We often hear about books that inspire or even music, but images? This is a cool twist.

Novelist Therese Walsh has gathered images on Pinterest – “visual inspirations” of her new novel The Moon Sisters.

The images are haunting, gorgeous, disturbing, inspiring, sad, puzzling. They inspire curiosity.

They capture the near-magical realism of this stunning coming-of-age novel, the story of two sisters who take steps to move on with their lives after their mother’s probable suicide.

Here are just a few. Visit Therese Walsh’s Pinterest board to see them all.
