As she was brewing up ideas on what to do with Johann, she also noted the frustration her middle school students were expressing concerning their reading options. She received a final nudge toward bridging that gap herself while editing papers in a high school class.

At the time, she was teaching the students about the writing process and asked each to turn in three drafts of a story. It took her five months to write the original draft, but she then revised it over many years. She also designed the cover and illustrations herself before she went to work researching potential publishers.
