He had noticed that many novels for young people published in recent decades were about issues arising for families and children living in the suburbs. Both are stories about groups of young people battling enemy forces intent on the invasion of Australia. The character of Homer was based on a number of students from rural backgrounds that Marsden had taught.
He noticed that many of these students, who at home drove cars, ploughed fields, harvested crops, worked as shearers and more, had trouble adjusting to an environment where they "were not trusted to change a light globe or put a Band-Aid on a cut". Marsden was inspired to write the character when he noticed that while many teenagers identified themselves as Christians this group was not represented at all in fiction written for them. Though unlike Chris, Marsden never used drugs. When asked why young people related to the characters in his books, Ellie in particular, Marsden speculated that, like himself, they found their strength and self-reliance inspirational.
