1. What are the three words that describe Seven?Mysterious, Surprising, and Unique.
2. What inspired you to write your book?Seven is all one big metaphor. Of course, interpretation lies in the eye of the beholder, but for me, what inspired me to write this was a concept, a concept featured at the beginning of the book. My inspiration was the desire to get that idea across and do something a little different.
3. Where did you get the idea for Seven?I actually started writing Seven in sixth grade. Not all of it. No concept. Nothing really pertaining to the book as it is now. I started writing a short story with two of the main characters in Seven, Cecilia and Tommy. I found that little notebook one day and started adding to their story.
4. How do you develop the characters?I develop characters through questions. I ask myself what do they look like, what are their hobbies, how do they interact with the people around them, how do they feel about the things going on around them.
5. Is any of the book from your real life?Absolutely not.
6. Tell us about your book?My book is titled Seven; it is a fiction, mystery, suspense-thriller with some romance. Seven tells the story of seven people whose lives come together because of a kidnapper. The story of each individual leads to the time they all come together. For example, two characters are escaping an abusive childhood home. In the book there are clues (or things that appear to be clues) that mislead reader thus building the suspense. A common thread I have recognized in this book (as in Starless Sky) is self exploration among both the teens and the adults in the book. Each of the seven characters is forced (literally) to look at their own talents and lives in order to escape. Not all of them are willing. So, will they all be freed from the grips of the kidnapper? Want to know the answer? Great, read Seven.
7. What makes Seven different from other books in the marketplace dealing with the same topic?
Really, what makes it different is that it is different.
8. What age group would enjoy reading Seven?While I target young adults like myself, I think that adults could enjoy this just as much. Some of the main characters are adults and the themes within it are universal.
9. What was the most difficult chapter to write?I struggled with the middle of the book. I struggled with it so much, that I stopped. Writers block hit me and it hit me hard and I moved on to other projects, leaving Seven unfinished.
10. What was the most powerful chapter to write in Seven?No specific chapter, but I think the end was most powerful as the climax. Not only that, but because one character in particular is very, very dynamic.
