Goodreads asked S. Martin Shelton:

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

S. Martin Shelton When I was a nipper, I read a short story about Grand Duchess Anastasia. Somehow she was alive and living incognito in the USA. The idea that she survived the regicide had always intrigued me. My novel “St. Catherine’s Crown: started as a short story, then evolved into a longer short story, then into a novella, then into the current book.
