RARE 1992 Ann M. Martin interview

I was going through my old VHS tapes last weekend, and look what I found! :D

This is an interview that Ann M. Martin gave with a twelve-year-old fan as part of the "What I Want to Be" segment on a 1992 episode of Disney's Mickey Mouse Club. You get a sneak peek into the BSC Headquarters, Ann's editing process, meet the art director, and see the manuscript for "Mystery Lake," which later became Super Special #8, Baby-sitters at Shadow Lake.

Enjoy!

Wow! Thanks for sharing that, it's pretty neat.

But oh Ann, that headband.

You're welcome! =) I was so excited to find I had some old Disney shows, period, and then this popped up. I immediately thought of this comm, LOL.

Ann is so awkward. I see she hasn't changed much in the ensuing twenty years...

How could I resist, considering how great the rest of the members of this comm have been in sharing their BSC goodies? :D

That's fantastic! Thank you! It's amazing seeing the styles of the early 90s... I didn't think it was that bad when I was actually living through it!

I'm glad you enjoyed it! =) It was such a trip, finding this - I was wondering why I'd taped the Mickey Mouse Club of all things, considering it wasn't my favorite Disney Channel show by a long stretch - and voila. Thank you, nine-year-old self :P

True, true...the late 80s/early 90s were just kinda tragic on the fashion end. I'm not looking forward to it coming back in style :P

Thank you for posting this! It's really cool!

But OMG that 90s fashion! Now I know why Claudia dressed that way! XD

LOL, her getups suddenly don't seem so far-fetched, do they? :P

Sure thing! =) I saw it again and immediately thought of this community. Only you guys would truly appreciate Ann's awkwardness, LOL.

Hi! This was awesome! I really enjoyed listening to it! I wonder if Shadow Lake has any ideas or influences that Nicole told them while in the editing process!

Haha, you're welcome! =)

I don't know ~ were Mallory or Dawn overly concerned about anything during that Super Special? (I know that was Mal's bug-be-gone phase, so maybe...)

I actually wrote to the Mickey Mouse Club requesting to meet her about two years before they picked this girl to do the same thing. I was so bitter.

*wince* Ouch. That sucks. I wonder what made them pick her over you?

Awesome! I am jealous for you @borrowedwings. Also Anne looks like a total sweetheart. PS - if it's any consolation, a google search for "Nicole Swenson" revealed no famous authors.

I so wish I could have gone to one of those editors' meetings, and toured the art department. lucky.

I know, right?! I would've loved to see all the original paintings of the covers *jealous*

Glad you enjoyed!

Thanks so much for uploading this. Completely agree with your comment above about AMM being so awkward. The headband, the outfit...also love the "Are you Nicole?" when she opens the door.
