What inspired you to write your book?
I've always wondered about the back-story to Santa Claus, the elves and the North Pole. The idea for this book came into being as an alternative History of the Christmas myth*, but as all books do, it evolved. Nevertheless, I fell in love with the idea that Christmas is not the same for everyone, least of all for the giving inhabitants of the North Pole.
*Insert "I believe in Santa Claus" here.
