Goodreads asked Christopher J. Hillger:

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

Christopher J. Hillger The Crystal Seal is was inspired by a few sources. I had a long time idea about writing about an apprentice becoming a mage. I always loved magic wielding characters in the books I read and the video games I played. Most of these though had "Mysterious pasts" so I thought, what if we followed a mage from his beginnings. Several characters were inspired by people I met in college. So I guess the answer is several places, ha ha.
