Goodreads asked Phillip Margulies:

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

Phillip Margulies I assume you mean Belle Cora. Belle Cora is a real person; I found out about her in the course of my casual reading. I liked all the traveling that Belle had done, across all kinds of boundaries, many different kinds of trespassing. I wanted to imagine what that would be like and I thought it would be fun to fill in the gaps in her story.
