Dear Daniel,

My seven-year-old son Charles and I have been reading the Neddiad together. We love the book, and we have one question. Is Seamus Finn’s name an homage to the Harry Potter books? One of Harry’s fellow Gryffindors is Seamus Finnigan.

Just curious.

Daniel replies:

If I were going to write an homage to the Harry Potter books, it would perforce be a reference to something on page one of the first HP.
