Goodreads asked Jack Spain:

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

Jack Spain I got the idea for Shetland from another short story I wrote called Trident. In that story the protagonist meets a young girl trying to get to Shetland. I thought that her back story was more interesting than the original short story.
