Having my novel at last in print gives me great pride. It has been a labour of devotion for almost three years.
Initially inspired by the Yewtree Inquiry that followed Jimmy Savile’s death, and the revelations of frequent, casual and at times almost public abuse of children, I set about a little research. It soon became apparent that he wasn’t isolated in his actions. Friendships, difficult to account for as a result of his mediocre talents, with people of great influence.
Does the society of the fictional planet Respite reflect that of Earth? I hope my readers will make up their own minds on that question.
If I make them think about it, I’ve done my job.
