Goodreads asked Julie A. Sellers:

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

Julie A. Sellers My idea for Kindred Verse: Poems Inspired by Anne of Green Gables, came about as the result of a contest. The call was for poems about farsickness, and I wrote one about Green Gables. My poem wasn't selected, but by writing that poem, I was struck once again by Montgomery's poetic prose. I returned to the Anne books, reread them all, and thus began my poetic conversation with the characters, settings, and Montgomery's life.
