Goodreads asked Chris Johnson:

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

Chris Johnson My most recent book, Twelve Strokes of Midnight, is a collection of stories. Each of them started with me asking myself, "What if?"

Originally I wanted a whole series of short stories with ghost themes. That started to fall down the drain when I wrote "Eva" which is about a vampiress and (spoilers removed). One could think of the Undead as "ghostly" but it didn't fit the profile. Then came "Bag of Life" and a few others and, before long, it became more a selection of paranormal thrillers that a lot of people have told me they enjoy for one reason or another.
