Goodreads asked Barbara Kyle:

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

Barbara Kyle I read about the Dutch "Sea Beggars" and found them and their connection with Elizabeth I of England fascinating. Plus, I had to get my continuing character, Adam Thornleigh, to the Netherlands to search for his stolen children. So, since he's a seafarer, the fit was perfect.
