Goodreads asked Jason Makansi:

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

Jason Makansi The novel arose from several short stories I wrote with a common protagonist, a character readers (and my various writer group members) seemed to really love. But the germ of the idea is one of two I think I have in me to anchor a long-form work. What I mean by that are ideas which exhibit the breadth and scale necessary for the long form, and which have not been explored at all or adequately in other work.
