Goodreads asked Lisa Shambrook:

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

Lisa Shambrook The ideas for all three 'Beneath' books were inspired by the creation of the first book 'Beneath the Rainbow'. The idea literally just came to me, and I thought, you’ve got to be kidding? The line reads: ‘Freya was seven-years-old when she got hit by the car. It was a 4x4 with a bull bar.’ The story flowed and wrote itself…feedback from people who’ve suffered grief has truly humbled me and to be able to touch hearts is a true privilege. The subsequent books follow on at seven year intervals. We see Freya’s best friend, Meg, deal with mental illness in the second book, and Freya’s now teenage sister, Jasmine, deals with her own identity and her mother's grief in the third, which is my most recent book, due for release this Autumn.
