Antony the main character in EMERGENCE was interviewed a few weeks ago. It was an interesting process. Here is the link:
Here is the Interview, incase you can't link to it.
Tell me a little about yourself (where you live, who you are, what you look like, what you hope to achieve, etc.)
My name is Antony Danic. I live in the Deakin District of Canberra. That’s the Australian Capital Territory. I have dark brown hair, usually to my shoulders, but I like to change it often. My eyes are blue. As for what I do? I am a . . . Human Resources specialist for Hurst Enterprises. I’d like to do two things, one retire and travel, and have a family with my wife Elite.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to travel. I like to practice martial arts, I should be testing for my fifth degree black belt in Tang Soo Do soon. I like to go dancing with Elite.
What is your favorite color and why?
Black. Then I can blend in and be un-noticed.
What is your favorite food? Why is it your favorite?
Chinese. I think for the variety. I love pot stickers.
What would you say is your biggest quirk?
I dislike technology. Especially machines that think they are autonomous.
What is it about your antagonist that irks you the most, and why?
Antagonist? Don’t have one. (Author note, antagonist is himself.)
What or who means the most to you in your life? What, if anything, would you do to keep him/her/it in your life?
Elite. She means everything to me. I’d do anything to protect her. Even kill someone.
What one thing would you like readers to know about you that may not be spelled out in the book in which you inhabit?
That anxiety issue my author thinks I have. . . um, not real.
If you could tell your writer (creator) anything about yourself that might turn the direction of the plot, what would it be?
Honestly? I don’t think so. We both think the plot is pretty perfect.
Ask me any question. I've always wanted to know what a character thinks about writers like myself. I'll answer the question at the end of this interview.
How many characters have you killed in your writing? My author thinks she holds a record or something.
Let's see, I've only written one mystery (that's published, that is) and I really don't want to give it away, so I'll say somewhere between one and four. You probably have the record.
Thank you, Antony!
