character interview blogfest
I saw this on the 700blankpages blog who got it from Elizabeth's blog who signed up on Sangu's blog.
The idea is to interview a character and post it on your blog. While Wyan's interview with his author went swimingly well. Teehee! I don't know if an interview with my character Noble would be any better. While Wyan is stubborn and rebellious, Noble is more of the silent type. And to be honest, he isn't the main character of the first book. The main character of Emergence which is the first book is Antony Danic. I wonder which one would give me more info. Probably neither. Hmmmmmmm Sounds like I should flip a coin.
No coins down here in my dungeon of an office. This might be interesting. . . . .
Maybe I should go alphabetically. Antony starts with A. Besides, Antony is the first character you'll meet in Emergence you don't even meet Noble untill the second book Latent. Maybe I'll catch Noble later this afternoon and add him later.
So here we go. I Michelle (M) will be interviewing Antony Danic (AD) the main character of the Emergence the first book in the Prophecy Rising Series.
M Good monring. How are you this morning?
AD I was asleep. And I'm hungry. Got any food? (Rummages through my cupboards.)
M Sorry, I was inspired.
AD Your inspiration gets you in trouble especially when you talk to your trouble making friend. What good is toast if you don't have any butter?
M I have cereal and milk.
AD Bleh, cereal isn't breakfast it's a snack. Elite would have woken me up with a plate of scrambled eggs and waffles.
M I'm not Elite.
AD I know. (Grins.)
M So anyway. . . The purpose for this interview is to let my blog readers get to know you better.
AD I'm invisible. (He raises an eyebrow.) Remember?
M This is just for the blog. So where you work, and what do you do?
AD So straight to the heavy hitters. Well lemmese. My Name is Antony Danic. I am a Human Resourses director for a company called Hurst Enterprises. I travel all over the world training employees. (Hides the glock .357 in his waitband.)
M Human Resourses. Right. (I roll my eyes.)
Ad (Stares at me unflinching.)
M Moving on, tell me a little about yourself.
AD My name is Antony Danic. I am a human--
M We allready know that. What about your past?
AD What about it? (He folds his arms and leans back in the chair next to me.)
M Where were you born?
AD Donno, I was found in a basket on the steps of a church in Dunedin New Zealand. Probably Dundein?
M Grew up?
AD We moved to Auckland when I was little. My parents owned a sheep ranch and I lived there untill I moved to Asutralia and joined the Austrtalian Defence Force.
M When was that?
AD When I was 17.
M What were your parents and childhood like?
AD No comment.
M Moving on. What do you like to do in your free time?
AD Free time? Whats that? I help Elite do what she needs to do. We go places and do things. Just took a trip to Tahiti. (Touches the gun in his waistband again.)
M (changing subjects) Speaking of Elite, what do you like most about her?
AD You're kidding. I love everything about her. There's nothing to dislike. Well except that church argument we have on Sunday mornings.
M Church? Please explain.
AD Nothing to it. I am an atheist. (chin reaises defiantly)
M I see. Well I can see we're going to get some deep thoughtful answers today. Favorite color?
M Favorite music?
AD As if you dont know it. You chose it for me. Alternative music from the 1980's on.
M More specif--?
AD Ultravox. Period.
M Favorite clothes?
AD Loose shirts, (pulls the back of his shirt over the butt of the Glock.) Jeans. cowboy boots.
M Favorite food?
M Favorite car?
AD Dont drive a car. Or a shuttle for that matter. Too expensive and Elite gets car sick. Although I did see this sweet Dodge Prowler a few weeks ago.
M Favorite weapon?
AD No comment. (Folds arms again.)
M Any Tattoos?
AD Birthmark. Maybe. Why?
M Nevermind. (Grins.)

AD (Smacks my forehead before disapearing.) PSYCH! (He laughs)
