Goodreads asked Erica Bauermeister:

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

Erica Bauermeister I am fascinated by the subliminal power of scents, and ever since I wrote Ava's chapter in Joy For Beginners I have wanted to spend more time exploring the subject. The Scent Keeper comes from a question I had -- what would it be like to grow up with scent as your primary sense, to perceive the world the way a dog does. What would our world look like to a child who had been raised that way?
