The inspiration for this book came to me in a dream I had a few years ago. I have not had a dream like this before or since. Luckily, this occurred during the weekend; as a result, I was able to spend time thinking about the dream, filling in the areas that were “fuzzy” or nonexistent. I was surprised how easily these events came to me; it was as if they just “popped into my head.” One character’s name was an example of this. There was no question; his name was to be “Danny.” The book’s conclusion was not part of the dream; therefore, I had to work that out later.
