Goodreads asked Sheryl Nantus:

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

Sheryl Nantus I got the idea for "In the Black" from a variety of sources - but primarily from "Firefly"! I loved Inara, a strong woman doing exactly what she wanted to do and took the idea of a courtesan and extrapolated it into the Guild and the Bonnie Belle... and of course every ship needs a captain so Sam Keller came on board and Marshal Daniel LeClair had to visit so...

I get my ideas from the strangest places and love when it happens!
