Goodreads asked Joan Ellis:

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

Joan Ellis The Killing of Mummy's Boy, launched today is my most recent book. I was inspired to write it after finding myself next to a self-confessed murderer on a train. Most people would have moved. Not me. During the next 60 minutes I was intrigued, repulsed and horrified but never bored. He asked me to get off the train at the next stop and run away with him. I refused but it got me thinking 'What if?' From the relative safety of my keyboard, I went on a journey fraught with fear.
