Rick Mcgimpsey asked Brian Herbert:

What got you into writing?

Brian Herbert My wife, Jan, noticed that I wrote excellent complaint letters to companies about faulty products and services – long, detailed letters that got results. She suggested that I might write stories, and that my father could give me advice. My father and I had not always gotten along, but in my 20s things were improving. I went to him, and he did help a great deal – as I described in DREAMER OF DUNE, my biography of Frank Herbert. See the chapter entitled “The Apprenticeship of Number One Son.”
