Where did Owen Knight find his inspiration? With the last volume of his Invisible College Trilogy – “A Perilous Journey” – about to be published, it seems a good time to look at what inspired the author to write this story aimed at Young Adults. Of course, we do need to be very careful not to give you any spoilers, but the colour coded covers going from green, through amber to red give you a flavour of the tension that slowly builds from the first dead body in book one to the terrifying conclusion. Writing for a modern YA (Young Adult) audience is a demanding task. State anything as a fact, even in a work of fiction, and you need to be sure that Google searches and Wiki research doesn’t debunk the platform on which you have built your original and carefully constructed plot.
