Goodreads asked Allan Joyal:

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

Allan Joyal For Lost on Jord? I guess I had been running into a number of tales where a man from our time ended up transported into America's past. I thought the stories were interesting, but wanted to take it a bit further and years ago I had thought about putting a modern man into a fantasy world. I can't explain why I set it up the way I did, but when I started plotting it out the initial scenes just seemed to fit and after that I allowed the hero and the other characters to push the story forward.
