Goodreads asked Chezdon Mitchell:

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

Chezdon Mitchell Two and a half years ago, I left Greenwich and I needed to fill a day with touristic activities before flying to France for two months. Whilst driving into Leeds Castle, I was listening to the news and thought that I could adapt a headline that was outrageous into Innocence Waning at the time. This plot has become a subplot which will drive the most significant twist in Innocence Waxing. It was apt timing too. I was stumped at the time as to how to finish Innocence Waning. It was certainly a light-bulb moment which will prove to be very confronting and controversial, which the reader has come to expect with my work.
