Goodreads asked Mary Patterson Thornburg:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Mary Patterson Thornburg Since THE KURA is the book most recently accepted by my publisher, I'll answer about this one. The idea for the character and situation came to me in a dream. It was such a powerful dream that it led me to write about that character and situation. And, when that book was finished, I realized that I needed to return to the character, Alyssha Dodson, and her life and adventures -- to tie up some of the loose ends that the first book had left dangling.
