What inspired you to write on the Biblical story of Esther?

The inspiration to write the Biblical story of Esther came when I was very young. I had watched the movie; The Ten Commandments and then searched the Bible to compare the scriptures with the facts in the movie. Someone had reenacted the story of Moses, and given us a treasure of enlightenment. From this point, I wondered what the everyday life and times of other bible characters would have been like. I had a stirring to write on the story of Esther- I read up the facts as contained in secular history and compared this with Bible data. Satisfied, I began writing.
