How did you get the idea to write 'Glint of Heaven' and 'Just One of Those Things'?I am apparently disposed towards fanfic because I wrote it way back when the New Kids were popular. The idea for these stories came during the summer of '97. I saw a lot of stories out there, and it was really thrilling to have the opportunity to write something for public consumption like that.
Which characters were the easiest and hardest to write?The heroines of my stories are the easiest for me to write, mostly because they seem like old friends at this point. The hardest character to write, at this point, is Zac in Lived. I want him to seem realistic (not just as "the Zac Hanson" but as a human being) that I spend a lot of time worrying about to do with him.
What's your personal favorite part of the story?A very brilliant boy once said that he couldn't tell reporters what was his favorite of the songs he and his brothers made. He said he felt like it would be betraying all the other songs... and I second that emotion about my fiction.
Is there an issue that worries you about Hanson fiction?I usually push it to the back of my mind, but I worry about how Hanson feels about what we do. To me it seems like the greatest tribute to them, this writing in their honor and our invitation to them to join the world of our imagination, but I would be very sad if how we portrayed them was upsetting to the boys.
