A Goodreads user asked Jojo Moyes:

Hi Jojo, do you like to travel? And do you ever got an inspiration to write a book / creating a character from the places you've visited/want to visit?

Jojo Moyes Hi Kalista - yes I do. And yes - Silver Bay was based on a place I found while I was doing a book tour in Australia. I was so struck by it that I had to ditch the book I was writing in order to write that book instead.
