"Where do you get your ideas for (so many) novels?" a reader asked.

I suppose I come by my ideas for novels through an excessive tendency to dream. My very first school report said: "Roy dreams". 

I have not improved. 

Having a love of such a rich subject as ancient Egypt helps feed this active interior life. 

I also enjoy problems solving and like to give characters challenges to solve where they have to call on all of their resources and beliefs. Hope this helps.
