Goodreads asked Gloria Piper:

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

Gloria Piper Hmm. I'm not sure what my most recent book is. Well, my novella, Long Pig, is at Amazon in print and will be launched as an e-book October 4, so I'll call that my most recent.

I wanted to see if I could write a horror story, and having lived through the 1960s and 70s when the cults were active, in or out of communes, some of what I'd seen and experienced from that era formed the ingredients for the tale. That included the back-to-nature movement, as well as the spiritual.
