Goodreads asked D.C. Williams:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

D.C. Williams Specifically for Closer Than Brothers I was struck by the way some older boys can seem sort of absorbed in each other. It's probably platonic most of the time, but being me, I started to wonder just how gay they would have to be to have that sort of "you are my person" override other considerations. I should add that when I use the word "boy" I really mean young adult, say sixteen or seventeen to twenty or twenty-one.

I get ideas from the world around me all the time.
