Goodreads asked Elizabeth Gannon:

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

Elizabeth Gannon Typically, I like to look at standard tropes of whatever genre I feel inspired by at the time (fairytales, road movies, video games, etc) and try to make them more interesting. Sometimes I turn them on their head, sometimes I mix and match ideas, sometimes I just feel like mocking how silly they are. That usually gives me a basic road map and a basic theme to touch on over the course of the book. In the past though, ideas have come from everything from my car's GPS to a dream I had, and everything in between.
