GUEST POST: Character Interview by author Saoirse O’Mara
Hi Donna, thanks for having me over on my birthday. I’d like to give your readers the opportunity to get to know me a little better, as well as meet my two protagonists, Tayla and Govin, from my YA fantasy/mystery series A Rogue’s Tale. So here’s my very own little interview with the two of them. Enjoy!
Saoirse: Tayla, Govin, nice to meet you again. Tell me…why did you choose my head to appear in?
Tayla: Oh, I liked the chaos and the creativity inside. And I liked the little dragon that already lived there.
Saoirse: Dragon? Oh, you mean Miro? Well, yeah, he’s the protagonist in another series….
Govin: Once Tayla had chosen you, I thought, oh well, why not give her a chance. And when I started to tell you the first story, it was easy enough to get you to write it down correctly. So we stayed.
Saoirse: Hm, that explains it. So what is up with you and Tayla? Why did you two end up friends?
Tayla: He helped me escape although he didn’t even know me, and when he asked me for help later, I knew I owed him. And since then, I haven’t been able to get rid of him again.
Govin: It just felt wrong to leave her in that cell. She has become a good friend in those first few days and I’m glad I met her.
Saoirse: What was the worst moment of your friendship?
Govin: When Tayla sent for me from the temple of Natifa, I was scared to death. I was really afraid I might lose her in that moment.
Tayla: Yeah, and after that, I thought you didn’t like spending time with me anymore because you didn’t want to investigate with me. I’m glad we got that misunderstanding out of the way. I really missed you.
Saoirse: Okay. But seriously, a member of the City Guard and a pickpocket...couldn’t you come up with an even more unusual friendship?
Tayla: Sorry, the friendship between dragons and humans was already taken.
Saoirse: Touché. Well, I’m looking forward to writing down more of your adventures together. Do you have more stories for my readers?
Govin: How much time do you have to write them down? We have plenty to tell.
