Q: Your characters Dr. Hansen and Michael are a father-son team. Why did you choose this pairing?

A: Somehow a boy and his dog just didn’t work. I guess I could have written this as a mother/daughter team, but I’m a guy and I just don’t think I could have pulled that off. It’s not that women are a complete mystery to me, it’s just that I’m more comfortable with guy issues.
