Goodreads asked Ian Wilkinson:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Ian Wilkinson As a child, stories and films like ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ inspired me. A storm in the final scene blows all the gold dust away into the desert, leaving the two survivors with nothing but their deep friendship for each other. Which is the real treasure? That film gave me a rather wonderful lesson at a very early age. So, deep down I was always drawn to this. As a psychologist I helped other people to tell their own stories and used other stories to help them see themselves and their worlds in a different way.
