Goodreads asked David Estes:

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

David Estes Population growth is a major issue these days, and I thought it would be interesting to write a dystopian novel centered on an extreme version of population control, whereby the government implements laws requiring someone to die before another can be born--essentially population neutral. Although I take an extreme position on population control, it's founded in the reality that world population is growing faster than the world will be able to sustain. At some point, something will have to change!
