For this year’s A-to-Z April Challenge, I’m interviewing characters from my and/or my twin’s fiction. Some of them are major characters, some are supporting cast, and some have managed to avoid any page-time (so far).
Deegan: Are you actually looking at the questionnaire in the back of that book?
Thomas: [hurriedly closing book] No — why?
Deegan: Don’t ask me about recurring nightmares.
Thomas: Wasn’t planning on it. How about a few questions from my blog readers instead? Here’s one: You’re obviously the main character of the story, but who besides yourself do you feel has an interesting tale, or a story that readers might be interested in?
Deegan: Don’t even say that! I’m not the main character, and I don’t want to be the main character. I’ve seen what you two do to your protagonists. You know who I’d really like to see have his own story? Brennen. He’s got it coming.
Thomas: [shakes head] Okay, next question: What traits do you consider your strengths, and what are your weaknesses?
Deegan: I assume you mean now. I’m loyal, I’m good in a fight… I’m not as good at apporting as some people I know, which is a weakness. On the other hand, I have better sources of information about the Enemy than anyone other than Morgen. And no, I’m not going to tell you what those sources are.
Thomas: You mean you’re not going to tell my readers… Last question: Is there another fictional world you’d rather have your adventures take place in?
Deegan: What, you mean I have a choice? And, come to think of it, what difference does it make?
Thomas: Good point.
