Goodreads asked Rodopi Sisamis:

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

Rodopi Sisamis I meditate and do some form of divination daily, and that's really where the inspiration for Elysium came from. I also journal daily, so I work out a lot of my thoughts, and problems on the page.

I really do think that keeping a daily journal is like meditation in the sense that you're focusing on clearing out all this emotion and finding what's really behind it, finding ways to clear out the clutter and remain with the important stuff.
Sometimes they all bleed through, one into the other, and stories begin to grow.
