1. What is the working title of your book?
You Don't Find Them, They Find You.
2. Where did the idea come from for your book?
This is a loooooooooooooonnnggg story.....
It starts with my favorite cousin. When I was younger, I used to make up spy stories about us. Unfortunately, I don't think any of them got past one or two pages....
Well, sometime at the beginning of last year I was at the thrift store and this new and improved secret agent idea popped into my head. I had to write it down right THEN. Luckily my mom had some paper and a pen with her....
Well, that idea evolved into my present spy SERIES!
3. What genre is your book?
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition.
Varina would be played by Michelle Dockery probably.... Although she would have to fake an American accent.
I don't know who would play Daniel..... Alexander Siddig has the right face shape, and is thin enough (at least, he was in his Deep Space Nine years). He also has the perfect accent. But Daniel is white, not east indian; and he has blond hair and blue eyes.
Soooo... that face/body shape with Michael W. Smith's hair and eyes?
If such a person exists.....
Really, though, I would be happy with a younger Alexander Siddig.
A race to find Liberace's rhinestone before the bad guys!
(If you don't know who Liberace is, shame on you. Here is a video for you:
That, above, is early in his career, I believe... Before he wore his flare, literally, on his sleeves.
Here is a picture for you:
If you are interesting in learning more about Liberace.... buy my book when it comes out. xD Kidding. Really, though, if you want to hear more of his music, I highly highly highly recommend the Muppet Show episode starring him. It can be found on youtube.)
6. Is your book self-published, published by an independent published, or represented by an agency?
It isn't published yet. When I finish all the books and edit them... I am going to try get an agency interested (because by that time I'll be in college or out of college and I'll have the knowledge to try do something like that. Right now I don't know enough about publishing).
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
One month - last year's NaNoWriMo!
8. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My favorite cousin.
9. What else about the book might pique the reader's interest?
Ummm... It's got a bunch of pop culture references that I will be forced to take out later (which will be sad). Also, Daniel and Varina go poking through the (sadly, closed. In real life and in my book) Liberace museum in Las Vegas. That was pretty fun to write since Liberace was such an extravagant guy. They try on some of his rhinestone-covered clothes.
And there you have it. I am going to (evily) tag Jessica at Authorly Insane. And my friend Jen too. You guys just have to answer the same questions I did.
Live long and prosper!
