Goodreads asked Luke Phillips:

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

Luke Phillips I started investigating the world of Britain's mysterious big cats about eight years ago. There had been a flurry of reports in my local area and I couldn't help wondering what people were seeing. As I looked into the conspiracies surrounding the 1976 wild animals act, spoke to witnesses and finally let my imagination run wild, it was clear there was a story here, and one that hadn't really been told. That's where the ideas behind Shadow Beast came from.
