Goodreads asked Dianne Astle:

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

Dianne Astle I spent a week at a retreat center with someone teaching a course on writing fiction. The only reason I took the course was that it seemed a whole lot easier than the other things they were offering that week. How wrong I was. Writing is hard work. Good writing is even harder. On my way home the idea for Ben the Dragonborn came to me and left me inspired to so something I never thought I would do: write.
