What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The main character of this book, Melvin, was inspired by my father. My father is 80 years old and a veteran of the Canadian navy. When I was a child, I helped my father iron his clothes for work and shine his shoes. Everything had to be done just so. My father also used to get down on his hands and knees to remove the "bingles" from the carpet. His obvious OCD always made us laugh and still does when we recall the things he used to do.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
As mentioned above, the main character of the book was inspired by my father. Dad's middle name is Melvin and one of my aunts nicknamed him 'Melvin Fastidious' because of his peculiarities!
Melvin wants his shoes to be polished just so;
