- What inspired you to write this book?
However, I came to believe that the market for these types of books is somewhat limited—mostly they are about changing yourself and most people don't want to talk about that. So I decided that maybe I could reach a wider audience with fiction. I reasoned that if I could get and hold a reader's interest with a story, perhaps they wouldn't notice if I slipped a few lessons in there. I decided on fantasy because I sci-fi and fantasy have always been my favorite genres. I have had story lines popping into my head most of my life.
