Goodreads asked Ricky Baxter:

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

Ricky Baxter Way back in secondary school. I used to daydream a lot, especially whilst the teacher was speaking. Worlds, people and scenes just came to my mind. It was then that the original idea of Gideon and the Crimson Samurai was thought of.
