Goodreads asked Tracy Shawn:

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

Tracy Shawn "The Grace of Crows" came to me because I wanted to write a fictionalized account of what it's like to suffer from anxiety since I struggle with it myself. I also had a dear childhood friend who became homeless as an adult, and I felt it was important to write about an insightful homeless character who changes the protagonist's life.

For the novel I'm currently working on, the idea came to me because I experienced two miscarriages myself and though they were both early in the pregnancies, I still feel the ghost-like loss and know many other women who do.
