Goodreads asked Nathanial Covell:

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

Nathanial Covell Big Trouble in Little China was definitely a huge influence. I really dug the lightning monk in that movie and asked myself what kind of world would produce characters like that. After that, my experiences living in Japan and the pursuit of trustworthiness weighed in heavily.
