Goodreads asked Tye Shirelle:

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

Tye Shirelle Mental illness runs in my family, which is what prompted me to make the main character in The War Within have a mental illness. I wanted to shed some light on just how difficult it can be to function and maintain a supposed "normal" life when you have a mental disorder.
