Interview Day

Today I welcome Andrew and Kate, the stars of the novels, Waiting for Dusk and Call of the Canyon.  I had a chance to ask them a few questions and get to know them better.

Hi, you two!  Welcome to Read Around Sue. I know I have questions as I'm sure other readers do.  So, here we go.

What did you feel when you first saw each other?

Drew: Could I be the first to answer? I know it might sound clichéd but it was love at first sight for me.

Kate: Looking back on it, I have to agree. I just turned sixteen back then so I doubted my feelings.  When I first saw him, I thought he was the most handsome man I ever saw.

Why did you give each other special names?

Drew: When Kate told me her name was Katie, I felt it didn’t suit her. It was a good name for a child but standing before me was a beautiful, young woman.

Kate: I thought Drew was a little cocky giving me a new name at the time. So off the top of my head, I decided to do the same. Now, I’m glad I did. I can’t imagine him as anything else than Drew. It’s my special name for him.

Drew, you are quite popular with the female readers. Why do you suppose that is?

Drew: Thanks for that comment, Susan. I think female readers love the idea I’m from another time and was brought up differently than kids today. My parents instilled values in me that are old-fashioned by today’s standards. There’s something romantic about that.

Kate, the same question?

Kate: I think Drew’s being too modest. Who wouldn’t fall in love with tall, dark and handsome? He comes across as loyal and loving to a fault. Isn’t that the man we all dream of?

Kate, some of your readers wonder why you forgave Ty so many times. Can you explain?

Kate: I tried to keep the illusion of Tyson alive as long as possible. He was my friend since I was eight-years-old. We played together when we were small and shared our dreams for eight years. I thought I knew him. I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He’s not going away any time soon, so I’m learning to handle him in a different way.

Some think you two are too young for such a serious romance. How do you respond?

Drew: Romeo and Juliet?

Kate: Pocahontas and John Smith?

Drew: I know people have their doubts about young love, but there are wonderful stories out there in fiction and real life. Don’t forget, back in the day, people married young.

Any hints about what’s in store for you in Stealing Time?

Kate: I’ve grown into my own person. Drew and I have some tough times but power through them. In the end, I hope everyone will be satisfied with our story.

Drew: Agree. I had to learn some hard lessons in Stealing Time.  Buy Call of the Canyon at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Call-Canyon-Waiting-Nancy-Pennick-ebook/dp/B00F6DEYHG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1384206357&sr=8-2&keywords=call+of+the+canyon
