Rach asked Katie McGarry:

What inspired you to write your books? Were there any real memories or personal experiences that you based your books off?

Katie McGarry Hi Rach,

I was inspired by experiences and emotions from my past. All of my books contain personal parts of me while other parts I had to research.

Because of privacy reasons, I very rarely will discuss which parts of the stories come from my real life.

I can say though that like Echo, I did experience a memory loss, but my memory loss came in second grade due to a dog bite.

Thank you for your question!
