Goodreads asked B.J. Mears:

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

B.J. Mears The idea for 'Gallows Iron' came about through researching into old burial customs and related archaeology. Also from reading The Liar (The works of Lucian). I had some basic ideas for the plot before writing much of the book but it all grew and developed as I researched. The finished product is a very different creature than I imagined it would be when I began.
