Goodreads asked Kelvin Christopher James:

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

Kelvin Christopher James Last september i was sitting on my terrace admiring my planter pots (5 of them) of ripening hot peppers when Trinidad's recent achievement of growing the hottest peppers on the planet occurred to me .. this set me to remember a neighbor who once started a pepper plantation, which set me off to thinking plantations and how they come about . . . which drifted on to making up a story of my friend as a farmer .. thinking that thru and peopling the story led me to create the characters, the closest to me being Andaluza, which led to Pinheiro being an associate of composer Granados . . . which sort of set the tone . . . then after a few months 'Peppers' had arrived wanting to be manicured here and there!
