Q. Out of all of your books, which book (or series) is your most favorite?
A. Difficult call since I have many favorites for different reason. Of my past books they would be The Skinner and Brass Man, of the three coming out it’s The Departure, but now of course, my favorite is what I’m now working on.
Q. What is your inspiration behind the Owner Series?
A. I wanted to try something different from my usual Polity stories and, just like my Spatterjay series, found inspiration from a few of my previous short stories. These appeared in my collection The Engineer and its second version The Engineer ReConditioned and are Proctors, The Owner and Tiger Tiger.
