Hintze was inspired to write after life-altering complications from a medication caused her to temporarily lose touch with reality. Even after her recovery, she realized that the experience was intimately transformative. Letters From Gardenia allowed her to process those feelings while providing the audience with a sense of how mental illness can feel.
