"The Last Ride" by Thomas Eidson was an influence on me when I was writing "The Stolen Angels" . I found it an enthralling book and it was also made into a very good film which starred, among others, Tommy Lee Jones and Val Kilmer. The idea of children being kidnapped can be a very disconcerting subject matter but one that I believed would make a good story. "The Last Ride" was a book that I couldn't put down and made me want to see the film. As soon as I saw the film I knew that I wanted to write a novel about the kidnap of children and so "The Stolen Angels" came to fruition.
