Goodreads asked McCallum J. Morgan:

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

McCallum J. Morgan The inspiration for "A Hole in the Ice" is a complicated story. Different ideas that I came up with over the years got poured into it. The Weather Casters were inspired by a painting that has hung in my living room ever since I can remember. The characters were ones I invented for a game of make-belive that I played with my brother, and the game itself was inspired by a cross of "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Golden Compass."
