I asked Taylor how did she come about writing this book, and this is what she said:

It's funny but the initial idea sparked from a class I was taking. It was an elective called Great Books. I had chosen to read about Greek Mythology and fell in love with the topic. So I wrote some short stories about it, but never writing a full length novel, I didn't want to try. It was kind of intimidating sitting down and preparing to write a book. So instead I stuck with my short stories and stayed in my comfort zone. 

Then I had this crazy dream about a full plot and everything that had to do with Greek Mythology stories but with a new twist on them. I woke up and wrote the dream down and started writing that same day. I wrote this book in about a month since I was so into it and the ideas kept flowing. The plot has stayed the same ever since the dream, just minor parts have changed.
