During her interview, Erin talked about her daughters and how they were her inspiration for the book.
“I think once you have children you start thinking of children’s literature in a whole new way when you re-read those books you loved now that you’re an adult,” she said.
Her daughters are already big fans of the book; they didn’t even need a copy of the book to love the story.
“[Helen] begged me to tell it to her every night,” Erin told People before the publication of “The Lantern House.” “So I know it by heart and I speak it to her because we don’t have the book yet. I think she thinks I’m just making it for her. I really don’t think she understands that other kids [will be able to] read it too.”
