Goodreads asked Teresa Flavin:

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

Teresa Flavin I was inspired to write Jet Black Heart, a spooky teen story, by the atmospheric North Yorkshire moors and coastline. I wanted to tell a Gothic story of Victorian time travel and the supernatural with contemporary teens at its centre. As a young person I loved reading eerie stories set on moors like The Hound of the Baskervilles and Wuthering Heights. I hope that Jet Black Heart will give young readers an enjoyable shiver or two!
