The idea came to me when I was originally framing my university dissertation on Scottish folktales. Though I ultimately chose another topic, part of my reading included stories about faeries. Scottish lore paints them in a way that's horrifying and sinister, where even "good" faeries shouldn't be wholly trusted.
A lot of the texts I used were from the 19th century. At the time, I was working on another manuscript, but I thought: wouldn't it be interesting to write about a girl in this era who hunts faeries? And wouldn't it be more complicated if she were the daughter of a titled gentleman, and therefore more restricted by her social status?
