Some Excerpts

How did you get the idea to write 'Tale of Three Brothers'?

The series didn't originally start out as a trilogy, it started out as "Two Worlds Collided", but then saw the potential of a possible sequel told from Zac's point of view, and so on. The idea for "Two Worlds Collided" was inspired by... of all things, "Titanic".

What's your personal favorite part of the story?

I have soft spots for each and every part of my stories. But I guess I really liked when I had Zac tell Melissa to "Wipe that phony understanding off your face, it doesn't become you." (he turned into Rhett Butler, there)

How have your own personal experiences influenced the story?

The actual plotlines are completely fictional, but the feelings that the characters go through are all mine. My parents went through a messy separation during the writing of "Two Worlds Collided", hence all the depressing emotional crap.

Is there an issue that worries you about Hanson fiction?

That young people will respect stories that have little to no real literary content, and will put these authors up on pedestals for writing, well, trash to be honest. There's nothing wrong with reading those stories, but when people claim that those stories are "the best", etc, I start to worry.
