Goodreads asked Brian Fence:

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

Brian Fence The problem with a trilogy is that darn second book. I had an idea of what I wanted to do with number one and I know where book three ends. Book two is kind of the long stretch of an interstate highway, and making the transition was difficult; the climax and a lot of the self-exploration -- which is a driving part of book two -- came from a short story I wrote as a supplement to the first book.
