Goodreads asked Stephanie Churchill:

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

Stephanie Churchill I kind of fell into it, actually, I had just finished a rough draft for a different book but wasn't fully satisfied with it, though I couldn't put my finger on the reason. For various reasons I thought it would be fun to experiment with writing something using a first-person narrative. A short little scene of a girl running through a market being chased by a city guard after having stolen an apple was playing in my head like a movie, so I just started recording it on paper. This is what eventually turned into The Scribe's Daughter.
