How she got the idea to write this book-The idea came from the “what ifs” in other stories, mainly Esther from the Bible and Cinderella.

How long it took her to write the book-It took me a while to actually start writing it because I didn’t know where to place it. In my head it was kind of more like a fairy tale in the past but that wasn’t really working, so I ended up having to invent my own country and put it in the future. I think I was driving down the road when the word Illea popped into my head and I knew that’s where she is. When that happened I started writing it full-out.
