The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted.

    The fear of catching the virus, getting sick and dying. The loss of job. Worry from overdue bills. All this combined create a keg of gunpowder in lots of stress in some marriages. It’s no excuse for the violence but it’s the reason.

    It isn’t the virus. The attitude was already present. The virus is the excuse.
