Goodreads asked Rob Sargeant:

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

Rob Sargeant Since I was a teenager I've had a strong belief in the existence of God, and heaven. My wife, Olivia, had a near death experience while she was in college, and was taken up to heaven for a short time. She told me about this after we were engaged. In recent years I've learned that life on earth is preparing us for eternity. The character we build now, is what we will take to heaven. In heaven we'll have a purpose, we'll have a job, we won't just be floating around on clouds playing harps. The main character in my book, In Heaven, has the heart of a warrior, this trait is taken with him to heaven, and he is recruited to fight with the angelic army, to battle demons, and watch over the life of a teenager back on earth.
