Goodreads asked Kendall Purser:

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

Kendall Purser The idea behind "The Voyages of the MS Rodent," started when I walked to work for a year through wind, rain, and snow. As part of my commute I had to cross the Snake River in Idaho Falls, and out in the river I saw an island with a burned tree stump which got my mind turning. I was also very interested in sailing at the time, so I put the two together and created a world where mice learned to sail and made the island a major part of the story.
