Goodreads asked E.M. Fitch:

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

E.M. Fitch The original spark for my continuing zombie series came years ago. While watching I Am Legend it struck me as the main character was walking into a dark, abandoned factory, that it would be interesting if the characters were only truly safe in the dark. Typically, being in the dark (whether that's nighttime, closets, or the creepy space under your bed) people feel more vulnerable and afraid. It's a common play on the fear of the unknown. But I thought it would be interesting to create a world in which the darkness blankets the characters with safety and that it was only in the light that they were in danger. Of that quick thought, Break Free the Night was born and the series hasn't let go of my thoughts since then.
