Goodreads asked D.M. Almond:

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

D.M. Almond I sublet a room of my house to a gnome in exchange for story ideas. Don't look into this unless you are serious about becoming a writer. The contract is a minimum ten years for gnome sublets, so there will not be any backing out when you realize what a slob your house guest is.
