Five Questions with EJ:
1. What would be the ideal meal for one of your favorite characters?
Emma, vegan and teen animal rights activist, loves veggie burritos and Simon adores rare steak. It is no surprise that these two do not get along. ;)
2. If I could read a diary of one of your characters, what would I learn about him/her?
Yuki has a secret...she smells the dead. As if high school wasn't difficult enough for Yuki, she is beginning her senior year with the gift of clairescence, the psychic ability to sense spirits of the dead through smell, but this "gift" feels more like a curse.
3. What is on the floor of your bedroom?
Lots and lots of dog toys, LOL! I only have one dog, a corgi named Maya, but she is very spoiled. Her toys are literally taking over the bedroom (and hallway, and living room).
4. Which is scarier, zombies or vampires? Why?
I will probably lose all of my goth street cred by admitting this, but I am absolutely terrified of zombies. Really. I always have a very visceral response to zombies...they make me throw up a little. Okay, now I've over shared. Sorry. I blame the zombies. Their shambling, putrefying, brain eating forms will always instill a sense of terror and revulsion. By comparison all other paranormal baddies (Vamps, Weres, Ghosts, Reapers, Demons) are just fluffy, little bunnies. Though admittedly some of those fluffy bunnies have very sharp teeth. ;)
5. What items do you always have with you?
My laptop Edgar, named after my childhood hero Edgar Allan Poe, and I are inseparable. I bring Edgar with me everywhere and never leave home without an emergency supply of pens, notepads, and extra reading material.
