Interview with Keira des Anges

1. If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why? 
I’m going to choose a recent literary work and say Peeta Mellark from the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins.  He is strong, loyal, kind-hearted and brave.  In an otherwise dark story, he struck me as the eternal ray of light, a physical manifestation of hope and good in the world.

2. What is the first curse word that comes to mind?  How often and why do you use it?
I don’t curse.  I can think of a ton of other worlds to use.

3. How would you spend ten thousand bucks?
If someone gave me ten thousand dollars, I would prefer to save it.  BUT, if I had to spend it I would take a nice family European vacation, first class the whole way.

4. What are 5 things within touching distance?
Computer, Globe, Taco, Lamp, Tape

5. Do you have a crush on anyone?
Well it’s not a crush actually, but I whole-heartedly enjoy Jim Parsons portrayal of Sheldon Cooper.  I’m not much of a TV watcher, but I look forward to seeing him every night.

6. What is your least favorite word?
Can’t.  That one little word stops so many people from reaching their true potential.

7.  Favorite season? Why?
Summer.  I hate, hate, hate the snow unless I am bundled up in a house in front of a fire and don’t have anywhere else to go.  I went to college at the University of Buffalo.  It was a great school, but the snow was ridiculous.  After I graduated, I decided I would move to move to Florida one day and here I am!

About the book: 

Leanna Matthews enjoys flying below the radar. She does well in school, has a few close friends and hides the fact she’s an astral-traveling telekinetic. But there’s no escaping her creepy dreams or Simora, the bizarre little spirit lady, that suddenly pops out of nowhere to warn her against keeping secrets and predicts an encounter with a sinister evil. For the first time in forever someone…or something…is on to her.

But life turns around when Leanna meets Piper one sunny afternoon. She’s inexplicably drawn to him, almost as if she’s been waiting for him to come. Forbidden to have a boyfriend Leanna throws caution to the wind, lying to her family and friends to be with him, while ignoring Simora’s ominous message.

Yet Piper has a secret of his own. He is on a mission and Leanna, unwittingly, is the key.

He stood idly by Ms. Fenson’s hedges, shifting around uncomfortably and looking at nothing in-particular.  After gazing at the sky, he stared at his feet and pulled at the shrubs behind him – which unless he had a death-wish, was an absolute no-no.  Ms. Fenson was a legend in her neighborhood and Leanna knew if this guy stood anywhere near the hedges too long she’d most certainly come after him – and it wouldn’t be pretty!  Although notorious for her loony behavior, no one denied Ms. Fenson took excellent care of her yard and was fiercely protective of it - in a scary, mad-womanish sort of way.

I’ll just walk by him, Leanna thought, trying to ignore the sudden tightness in her chest.  Anyway, who cares?  He doesn’t know me from a hole in the ground.

With each step, her legs turned to mush.  But an invisible force pulled her forward.  The pressure grew stronger, involuntarily pushing her along until she finally passed him; her heart racing, her body stiffening…

“Hey!” he called.

She stopped abruptly.  Was he talking to her?  It was hard to focus; the thumping in her ears grew nauseatingly louder.  But since there wasn’t anyone else around, he must be speaking to her.  Leanna turned around uncertainly.

He casually strolled over with his hands in his jean pockets.  When they finally stood face-to-face, Leanna’s breath caught.

He was even more strikingly handsome up close.  At around 5'10, he wore his wavy hair cropped close to his head, and in spite of his loose, red Ecko T-shirt, he sported a visibly muscular build.  His chestnut eyes were splashed with the tiniest specks of green and framed by long, dark eyelashes, in stark contrast to his honey brown skin.  They were the most beautiful eyes Leanna had ever seen.  But it wasn’t the color that intrigued her.  His eyes were clear and telling; their depths ran deep.  And for a fraction of a moment, she could’ve swore she saw herself.
