She has said that she had the character of Chris Morrison in her head throughout her time working as a newspaper reporter. In fact it was the character refusing to shut up that inspired her to quit her job and try her hand at becoming an author. Once she started writing her story, everything fell in place and it was as if the story wrote itself. Morrison was an amalgamation of the many people she had met over the years. As such, he was inspired by the things Emma Christie went through as a writer and her experiences working as a reporter.
