What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I was a child I love to watch Tour of France and Vuelta a España on TV, later, when I was meeting my friends to ride our bikes, we fantasized about beeing a professional cyclist, and in our heads and hearts we were. A little hill near our hometown was our mini Tourmalet. That inspired me the bicycles part of the book.
The music side of the book was ispired by my love for music, and guitar in particular, the romanticism of the blues and specially the legend of the great Robert Johnson.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The main character is ispired by my own experiences and feellings as a child, the girl´s character is inspired by a woman musician that I admire, Lucas best friend is inspired by my own bestfriend and the old man owner of the guitar shop is inspired by a man that sold me a guitar string set in and old music shop.
