Goodreads asked Scott Mackey:

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

Scott Mackey I was toying with the idea of how someone who lived a very mundane life--in this case that of a college professor--who was suddenly thrust into a world of crime and violence. How would he react? How would it affect his core personality. With that I wanted a compelling plot that included relatively high stakes and a love interest. Courage Matters sort of just came together from these basic elements.
