Goodreads asked Sara San Angelo:

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

Sara San Angelo After I graduated high school in the early 90s, I decided to join my sister on the road. She had left the previous year and told me about an underground world of young vagabonds and train-hopping hobos who threw off the shackles of society for a life of pure freedom. Having always dreamed of becoming a writer, I thought it would be the experience of a lifetime.

So to the horror of my father, I decided to postpone college for a year and travel. One year turned into ten while we hitchhiked all over the country meeting a family of hundreds of like-minded, dirty (as in grungy) people along the way. You all may know them as gutter punks or squatters. But there are so many more than that out there.

Finally, I decided it was time to hang up the 'ole thumb and pursue the next phase of my life. I went to college, graduated with a communications degree and started my writing career. Drift is a fictional account based on my experiences out on the road. I plan on making it a series because there is so much more I want to convey.
