Goodreads asked Patrick J. Stoner:

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

Patrick J. Stoner It was a gradual process. This started off as a single book, probably no more than a novella. Then it grew a bit . Then a friend made a suggestion that triggered a thought. It was all a bit like one of those Wallace and Grommit machines where seemingly not connected actions finally create something. And it was all there, only it was going to take between 800,000 and a million words as opposed to 100,000.
