Goodreads asked Leo T. Dufresne Jr.:

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

Leo T. Dufresne Jr. It actually came from a short story I wrote years ago. A math teacher who was forced to publicly humiliate himself. I won an award for the short story but soon realized that the market for such stories was very limited. I spent the next nine months figuring out how to turn it into a novel. Along the way the main character changed quite a bit, but the genesis of Mitch was born in that short piece.
