Goodreads asked John M. Burton:

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

John M. Burton My latest book is called "The Trial of Admiral Byng" which details the siege of Minorca in 1756, the sea battle off the shore involving Admiral Byng and his subsequent court-martial. I got the idea after my wife introduced me to the isle of Minorca and because of an interest in Byng's story. I returned to the island this year to do some research on the siege and its aftermath and finished the book in November 2014. It is now available as a paperback or kindle version on Amazon.
