Interview with the Author

Interview with the Author

Interview used with the permission of Dante and the author.

Dante: I am here with the woman who likes to think she is my creator, but we both know the truth of that, don’t we, Margay?
Margay: Ah, excuse me, I did create you.
Dante: Isn’t it true that I came to you in a dream?
Margay: Actually, yes.
Dante: I love invading dreams. I don’t get to do it very often.
Margay: Can I tell the story?
Dante: Oh, yes. Please do.
Margay: Thank you. As I was about to say, it was one of the more vivid dreams I’d ever had, a fully realized scene of the two of us on the dance floor, dancing the night away.
Dante: I love dancing.
Margay: Dante, please.
Dante: Oh, sorry. Go on.
Margay: But you were something of a devil and that is how I first thought of you. But as the story came to develop, I realized that you were more of an angel, just a…misguided one. You’d lost your way somehow. You’ve been rather stingy on the details.
Dante: If I told you everything up front, what fun would that be?
Margay: Yes, I must admit it’s been more fun pulling the details out of you with a pair of tweezers. I just wish I didn’t have to go through Nora to get them.
Dante: Ah, yes, Nora. Sweet girl.
Margay: We’ve talked about this, Dante. You can’t have her. She’s not meant for you.
Dante: Can’t I have anyone? What kind of power do I have if I can’t take whomever I want?
Margay: Don’t forget free will. It’s all about free will. You see, they have to choose you. If they don’t choose you, you can’t have them.
Dante: I never did like free will. It’s always messing things up.
Margay: Dante, come on now. Maybe we should just talk about the book.
Dante: Yes, do that. Talk about the book.
Margay: At its core, Nora’s Soul is a story about one woman’s journey to rediscover her faith – in herself, in her beliefs, but along the way, she is challenged by two angels, one light and one dark. The light angel, Peter, wants to help her reconnect, but the dark angel, Dante, wants something entirely different. He wants her soul.
Dante: Nice summary.
Margay: Thanks.
Dante: I just hope you got the story right.
Margay: Well, I guess you’ll just have to wait until the release date to find out.
Dante: So you’re not even going to give me a little hint about how it turns out?
Margay: Nope. But if you go to my website, you can read an excerpt.
Dante: And you thought I was the devil. Anything else you would like to say?
Margay: Yes. Nora’s Soul was published by Second Wind Publishing, LLC and will be available in November 2008.
Dante: Thank you for this interesting chat, Margay.
Margay: Yeah, it was…interesting. Thanks for staying in one place long enough to conduct it.

  8. Paula

    Loved the interview!!! Dante sounds like a real interesting angel??

  9. Margay

    Thank you so much, Peggy, Paula and Mary Ann. I’m so glad you enjoyed the interview. It was fun for me, too – that Dante is quite the devil. Okay, he’s really an angel, though he might take exception to me calling him that! He’s just lost his way, somewhat.

  10. Cheryl Malandrinos

    Great interview! I love it when characters and authors talk to each other.


  11. Margay

    Me, too, Cheryl! But there are those, like Dante, who won’t stop talking to you and put crazy ideas in your head – like continuing their story in other books. Stay tuned…

  12. RobynL

    I too enjoy this kind of interview. What a dream-dancing the night away. A great concept.

  13. Margay

    Yes, Robyn, it was quite a dream. I still remember it quite vividly.

  14. Debby

    Hmm, neat dream. I wished I dreamed of Dantes.

  15. Margay

    Thank you, Debby. Yeah, it was a nice dream.

  19. Caffey

    Fun interview! Too I shall check out this publisher. Its a new one to me too!

  20. Margay

    Thank you, Debbie, I’m glad you had fun reading this interview. I had fun doing it.

  21. Margay

    Thank you, Maithe, I’m so glad you enjoyed the interview. I have to say I’ve grown quite fond of Dante – he is a charmer. Which can be quite dangerous, given his role in the book.

  22. Margay

    Thank you, Nancy and Caffey, I’m glad you found it fun to read – it was fun to write. Caffey, Second Wind is a new publisher and it has many good authors on its list. Definitely worth checking out.

  23. LadyVampire2u

    That was a great interview! I so enjoyed it. And please tell Dante that he is free to invade my dreams anytime. 😉

  24. Margay

    LadyVampire2u, you are a woman after my own heart! And since Dante keeps invading my dreams (he just won’t leave me alone!), his story will continue.
