Goodreads asked Heidi Herman:

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

Heidi Herman I was inspired by my mother, who wrote her memoirs in 2013. She recounts growing up in Iceland with all the legends and superstition of the culture. I became enchanted with the story of the Yule Lads, who are a cross between the Grinch and Santa Clause with a little gremlin thrown in for good measure.
