Goodreads asked R.J. Castro:

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

R.J. Castro I remember sitting in the theaters, watching the sixth Harry Potter movie and turning to my partner, saying, "We need to start reading these books, we're clearly missing so much." After reading a chapter of Harry Potter, I was inspired. I absolutely loved the magic. But instead of using wands for magic, I knew I wanted to do something different--hands. I am intrigued with the use of hands and powers, similar to some of the powers the X-Men have. I don't know how I got the idea of angels though, I wish I did, but somehow, somewhere in there an angel was born, he lives in my head and he doesn't let me rest. As a thank you for igniting my passion of writing, all of my series titles are an homage to J.K. Rowling.
