Goodreads asked Bev Allen:

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

Bev Allen I wanted to write about the problems so many kids face today with the break down of families, drugs and the potential for sexual exploitation.
I also wanted to write the sort of "ripping yarn" space opera I love/loved as a teenager. mix the two and you have "Jabin".
