This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)

Robb T. White Joyce,

My apologies for the long delay in responding. Simple answer, however: I was contemplating writing my first detective fiction novel & trying to come up with a name. I looked over at my bookshelf and the name that caught my attention immediately was Thomas Haftmann. The title of his book eludes me now but it was on the subject of modern painting. I liked the surname because I had in mind a character who had a dark side--ergo, "half-man." I'm happy to let any readers decide what the other half is. By the way, my own ancestry is Irish, not German. Best, Robb White
