“The greatest inspiration for my writing is the people around me. They say that truth is stranger than fiction and I believe this to be very true. Most of, if not all characters in my books are based, loosely may I add, on people I know. One of the main protagonists in my book is Walter, who at first appears to have a disability. This disability, it becomes apparent, is part of his extra ordinary powers and as you get to know him you begin to realise that he has a great strength of character which outshines any disability he has. This has been inspired by my students who, when you look past the disability, are rich, colourful and creative people who have a great inner strength. It is that strength which has been the inspiration behind this book.” R.S. Atkin
