Hi. I really loved your book The Elites. It is one of my favourites. I was wondering how did you think up of the idea? It would be awesome if you could answer this.
Thank you Roxanne! I'm so happy you loved it! <3
I first came up with the concept when I was in my second year of uni. We were having a lecture on DNA and I started to wonder whether in the future our technology would be so advanced we'd be able to pin-point from birth exactly what someone would be best at. There's so much you can already tell from a person's DNA, so it seemed possible. That's when the idea of Neo-Babel developed - a society where everyone is streamed at birth into a social class and eventually a job.
The story, characters and settings all evolved from there! x
