What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My inspiration for the book was essentially just kicking around ideas, one thing rolling into another.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
For the characters, I drew direct inspiration from actual spacemen and women. The leader of the Space Patrol is a leader called Fuzzy Baldwin. This name was derived from the famed American astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Cally Wide from Sally Ride and Journey Grey Area is actually a derivation of Yuri Gagarin, the first man to complete a space walk.
