Questions & Answers

Hi Mr Delaney

I have wondered this ever since i read it and i've wondered did you ever have any second thoughts about writing John Gregory's death and if you did how long did you debate it for?

Thanks

Answer:

John Gregory was old when he first took Tom on and was inevitably approaching the end of his career and his life. I did briefly consider placing him in retirement to be consulted from time to time. I do not regret killing John Gregory but I wish I hadn’t killed off Bill Arkwright.
