Goodreads asked Neil Davies:

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

Neil Davies The Village Witch (due from Omnium Gatherum early in 2015) is an amalgam of different ideas and thoughts, as most books are I suspect. I wanted to write a book set in a small village near the sea. I wanted to write a 'creature' book but using a creature that hadn't been overdone by others. I had these two characters from my novelette (and my brother's original short story from the 70's) The Evil Incantation and I wanted to show how they met and teamed up. All these things melted together and out came The Village Witch. I think it works.
