Goodreads asked Lissa Johnston:

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

Lissa Johnston At the time I was still writing a lot of non-fiction books for elementary age students. I enjoyed the research process but was itching to write outside the lines of non-fiction. The book is a mash-up of my love for solving puzzles dating back to my fondness for Nancy Drew mysteries, and a shout-out to my Norwegian ancestors. Crazy combo, I know, but at least it's unique!
