Stockton: I had a lot of things I wanted to say to my children. We have car rides from sporting events but you don't get a chance to talk to them as much as you like. You don't get a chance to explain things. That was probably the start of it. I wasn't worried about publishing or anything else. I was just worried about doing it. That exercise was good for me.

Stockton: The interviews. Hopefully, though, the interviews are a lot more short lived.
