Goodreads asked Thomas Alan Ebelt:

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

Thomas Alan Ebelt I took it from a variety of influences, experiences, and books and movies I have loved over my lifetime. I lived in New Mexico for 20 years near the reservations and traveled the area extensively. I confess I fell in love with the desert and culture, which gave me the location to write about. I have read adventure stories written from the early 1900s to the present and love a good tale. The 1930s appealed to me as a time for the happenings in Blacksparrow because of the world turmoil, recession, and simpler times. It provided a good backdrop for the story.
