Goodreads asked Samuel Brower:

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

Samuel Brower Im my Thunder & Shield series I wanted to include some kind of American folklore in each novel. The first book deals with a satanic cult because I remember stories of that sort of thing going around when I was a kid. "Don't go into those woods, there's a satanic cult there that sacrifices people", and that sort of thing. The second novel that I just finished deals with voodoo. I've always been interested in the mixed culture in New Orleans, so I decided to make it the setting of the second novel, and of course voodoo had to be in there.
