Goodreads asked Norman Draper:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Norman Draper From two things: Sitting with my wife on our patio, sipping wine or gin and taking note of the flowers in our gardens and the birds our feeders are attracting; and then, the delightful novels of Peter Mayle, though my finished product bears little resemblance to anything I've read by Peter Mayle.
