Goodreads asked A.E. Colmer:

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

A.E. Colmer Talendia has a long story and I must admit I cannot tell you where the exact idea came from as I wrote the first version or we can call it the back spine of the novel when I was 14 years old. I have always had a story or tale in my mind to tell ever since I was a child to entertain my cousin and other family members or myself. The first version of The Lost Boy was no more than 26 pages long. I somehow forgot about it during the years, but when it was found in a box 20 years later and I read it I immediately decided to work on it, extend the story line, include new chapters and new characters in the novel.
