The Origin of the Story
In 2013 I was captivated by a story of a team of firefighters who died in a horrifying wildfire just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Nineteen men were trapped with no escape. This tragedy made me think about the kind of people who are prepared to run into a fire rather than flee from it.
So I created my hero, Quinn Cooper. He’s had many life adventures but he finally chooses firefighting as his career. He must demonstrate courage and strength every day of the week. His job is brutal, relentless and leaves no room for error.
The Reality of the Job
Sadly during this last month, firefighters have lost their lives in Canada and in the United States. Their deaths are a stark reminder of the unpredictability of working in a fire zone.
They leave behind shattered families who will never forget the dedication of their loved ones.
