The folks at Book Born were kind enough to interview me – and they had some great questions like:
Who is your favorite character and why?
Verchiel, Micah, and Malick are the easiest to write, actually, so they’re probably my favorites. If I didn’t need to type for them, I could sic them on a scene and just go to sleep, then wake up to pages and pages. They can get other characters talking, because of the way everyone reacts to them, and Malick… well he loves to hear himself talk. And talk. And talk. But, the characters I think are the most interesting…Oooh. That is hard to choose because I think they’re all interesting. Maeko is one whose life I’d like to see, but I probably won’t because she’s hard to write with all the sans, and chans, and samas…I have a very rudimentary grasp of the suffixes, and though I think it’s enough to fudge through a few scenes, I don’t think it’s enough to carry a novel. If I could find a Japanese expert to go over it after I finished it, then I could do it.
See you there!
