Goodreads asked Carla H. Krueger:

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

Carla H. Krueger I'm lucky enough to have a very grumpy father-in-law. He's one of those people who (un)intentionally presses every button I own (psychologically-speaking, I mean, and not the buttons on my fancy cardigan). Whenever I meet him, he makes me feel like I've either been attacked by angry hounds or trapped inside a little box! Try as I might to get along, I sometimes just want to ESCAPE!! We've all been there.
As a writer and self-professed "human nature observer" I find those interactions interesting, frightening and deeply amusing. Without giving too much away, the rest of the story developed from there....
The old adage, "write what you know" is still invaluable advice.
