Goodreads asked Thomas S. Flowers:

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

Thomas S. Flowers The best material for writing horror often comes from just simply watching the news. There seems to be a lot of confusion and a lack of general conversation, despite the power of social media. Reinheit was inspired from this fear I've been seeing. Fear of "the other," as it were. Mostly biased. And it reminded me of my studies on the Holocaust, where a lot of fear and anxiety of the times were levied on a particular group of people with disastrous consequences.
