How did you come up with the idea for David Mortimore Baxter?
My dad used to tell my sister and I stories when we were kids about when he was a kid. He had a group of friends that he hung around with and they had many adventures (according to him). I wanted to write a story that boys would read so I thought about my dad and used him as a model for the main character, David.
He was a short story that turned into a book that turned into a series.
