Goodreads asked Katie Mineeff:

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

Katie Mineeff My husband bought me a blank book many years ago that sat in my bottom drawer collecting dust. When I was on maternity leave with my first daughter I took it out and started sketching things and working on a family tree. I realised I had stories going around in my mind as I was doing that and started to write down some ideas. The ideas turned into pages and pages of writing and took off into paragraphs of dialogue and character profiles. I eventually got out my laptop and started typing. And of course the word doc then sat metaphorically collecting dust for a couple of years before it turned into my most recent and first published book Cargo!
