You all know about the newly released PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White, RIGHT? I sure hope so because I've had the immense pleasure of reading it before it was released. And I'm here to tell you it is awesome! So awesome in fact, that I asked Kiersten if she'd mind if I asked Evie, her MC, a few questions, and she was nice enough to agree. But, was that enough?? NO WAY! I also decided that since I won the chance to read PARANORMALCY, I should pass it forward to YOU. So, one lucky winner will receive his/her very own copy courtesy of moi. I'll leave details at the end because right now you want the interview...
Evie, why don't you tell us something about yourself for the readers that don't know you yet?
This one time I decided I was tired of hanging around outside Lish's tank. (Sometimes having a mermaid for a best friend sucks. For one thing, manicures are impossible.) So I figured, hey, if the Center I live in has a gigantic, coral-reef filled tank for Lish, and IPCA won't let me go on a scuba-diving trip, I'd make do. However, Raquel was not amused when my expense reports came in and she saw I'd ordered full scuba gear. She sent it all back, didn't let me keep any of it.
Not even a snorkel.
I'd say that describes you pretty well! But being a sixteen-year-old-girl, it must be a little intimidating going after powerful creatures like vampires. How can you stay so cool under pressure?
See, that's where people get it wrong. Vampires are huge, huge wimps. All of their muscles are withered and wasted (yes, nasty). If they can't mesmerize you with their stupid vampire compulsion, you're set.
I guess carrying my own custom Taser everywhere with me lends some confidence, too.
You must have seen some pretty interesting things. What is the strangest thing you've ever seen?
This one time Lish managed to sneak in a travel order for me to go to L.A. to watch the red carpet walk at a premiere of a Very Big Movie that I won't name here because I'd get in trouble. The vampire character? Not a vampire. The werewolf character? DEFINITELY REALLY A WEREWOLF. Too bad TMZ ignored my email.
Is there anything you don't believe in?
The tooth fairy is totally bogus. Trust me, the last thing you want sneaking around your room at night is a faerie.
What's your biggest wish?
Sometimes I want more than anything to try out normal life. You know, high school, lockers, driving, wild parties where the police get called and you have to escape down the fire ladders with that darkly handsome and dangerous boy you met and probably shouldn't date but are going to anyway. That, and I'd like to guest star on my favorite teen drama, Easton Heights.
What's next for Kiersten?
I think she needs a nap, honestly. And she also needs to wear more pink. I hear she's writing more books or something, too.
Thanks Evie and Kiersten!
