Goodreads asked Martha Conway:

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

Martha Conway My neighbor once told me, very off-hand, "Well you know, my son cannot lie." And it was true; I'd often noticed how her son went to great lengths to try to tell the exact truth. I thought: what a great seed for a character! And what if that character is forced to lie? And then break the law? How would that affect her?
