Goodreads asked Josin L. McQuein:

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

Josin L. McQuein One book came from a list of books and movies about people who were either being chased, or *thought* they were being chased due to some kind of paranoid delusion. It's the kind of thing that will mess with a person's head because it sounds totally insane to anyone not experiencing it.

The Illuminati book came from an idea about shadows behind famous and powerful people. That the person you see on TV isn't really the powerful (or in certain cases - dangerous) one; the one to watch out for is the guy standing just behind them, hidden in their shadow and close enough to whisper in their ear. From there, it was a matter of looking into groups of supposed historical power.
