Goodreads asked Melanie Hooyenga:

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

Melanie Hooyenga I got the idea for the Flicker Effect series while driving along Lakeshore Drive in St. Clair Shores, MI, just outside Detroit. The sunlight was flickering through the trees the way I describe in the books, and it's always had a strong effect on me: my eyes wig out and I have to shield them so I can see. That particular morning I thought to myself, "what if there's a girl who, when the light does this to her, she travels back to yesterday?"
