Goodreads asked Rene Denfeld:

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

Rene Denfeld The Child Finder was inspired by a real case here in Oregon, and I felt my experiences as an investigator could bring it to life. It was also inspired—like all my work—by my own history. I loved being able to showcase the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest where I live, as well as dive deep into how we survive terrible trauma—and come out the other side.
