Goodreads asked Derek Milman:

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

Derek Milman I can sit in a cafe, squeeze my eyes shut, and force myself to scribble down a bunch of crazy ideas. The one that seems the most viable a few days (or weeks later) is the one that gets my personal green light.

Scream All Night is partly inspired by Hammer horror films from the '50s. At one point Hammer moved into Bray Studios, which was basically a big house in the English countryside (where they shot Rocky Horror). They filmed these gothic creature features there, using every angle in every room, before they decamped. I figured there was a book somewhere in this..
