Goodreads asked Glenn Rolfe:

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

Glenn Rolfe The Haunted Hals was born from a short story I wrote called, "Night Swim".
I work overnight at a hotel on the weekends. I was walking past the pool one night ( probably about 2 in the morning)and imagined someone getting out of it and everything turning cold.Then, I thought, "what if that were a guest and the water turned ice cold while they were in there. They get out and the cold follows them?" I got goose bumps thinking about that. I hurried back to the desk and scribbled that short story. Once i looked at it again, I knew it was the beginning of something much larger.
