Goodreads asked Lela Markham:

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

Lela Markham It was a lengthy process starting more than 20 years ago when I was researching the unusual family name we eventually gave our daughter. I learned a lot about Celtic mythology then, which caused me to read more on the subject. Later, I was listening to Enya on rainy afternoon about 15 years ago and the characters of Padraig and Tamys began to form in my mind. I am a character-driven writer so I didn't actually start writing the book until the characters formed.
