Goodreads asked Scarlett Van Dijk:

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

Scarlett Van Dijk Sky Stone was inspired by music, Kelly Clarkson's 'Breakaway' to be exact. I remembering daydreaming to the song and a movie running through my head. Every time I listened to Breakaway the story would become more elaborate until one day I decided that I would write it down or risk losing this story forever.

The story has changed a fair deal from what the original daydream but I don't think it changed in a bad way.

Guardian Core was a dream. Even after I had finished Sky Stone I continued to imagine more adventures for Skyla.
