On the website, Steve Harrison has written an article for their Story Behind the Story feature about the inspiration for his debut novel TimeStorm. From a chance remark by his brother, when they saw a replica frigate in Sydney Harbour, Steve gradually pieced together a plot that would allow him to explore the clash of cultures between the convicts and naval officers from an 18th century convict ship and the inhabitants of 21st century Sydney, while at the same time paying homage to the stories of heroes like Hornblower that thrilled him when he was growing up.
