Carmen asked Simon Palmer:

Hi Simon so the inspiration behind the book Is more fiction than non fiction Have you always wanted to write or did someone or something inspire you too right Loved your book

Simon Palmer Hi Carmen. The inspiration behind the book came in a vivid dream I had several years ago. The outline therefore would be classed as fictitious, however a lot of the 'Lost Innocence' characters are inspired by real people.

My father was a songwriter and still is, so I was inspired by him to write lyrics and poems at a very early age.

Thank you and I'm glad you loved the book.
