Goodreads asked J. Pedersen:

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

J. Pedersen I wanted to learn Cebuano.
As an experienced language teacher I knew I needed a textbook to learn from.
I searched for 12 months for studying materials for foreigners, but found none.
I still needed a book, so I decided to write it, with help from my teacher..
