I am super excited to be on the blog tour for Alyxandra Harvey’s blog tour, she is here today for an interview. Welcome Alyxandra! Alyxandra is the author of The Drake Chronicles and Haunting Violet. You can find her online at her website, Twitter, or Goodreads.
If the characters from Haunting Violet got stuck on a deserted island, who would fare the best? The worst? And who would be the one to get them off the island?
A great question! I’m sure Violet’s Mom would fare best because she’s at heart a survivor. She would do whatever it took and by whatever means. But I think Colin would fare best all around because not only would he survive but he’d manage to get home and he wouldn’t give up his sense of honor for it. Even if that sense of honor includes a little pickpocketing. ;)
Could you tell us 5 random facts about you?
*I miss having pink hair. But it requires so much upkeep!
*It’s definitely time for another tattoo.
*I am working on Haunting Violet photos and trailer…all outfitted from my closet. That should probably scare me.
*I love the smell of bonfires.
*I don’t like marshmallows.
Between all your books, do you have a favorite character to write?
Usually my favorite character is whoever I’m writing about at present. I will say that Lucy from The Drake Chronicles is one of the easiest characters to write. She’s very chatty and secretly wants her own spinoff series!
If you could have lunch with one of your characters, who would you choose?
Maybe not my vampire characters ;) Though I’d love to hear Aunt Hyacinth talk about Victorian London.
I think Elizabeth and Violet together would be fun. There’s a character in the Haunting Violet sequel I wrote for myself who I’d also like to have tea with…
What is a book you have read lately and loved?
I love any poetry by Mary Oliver and she has a new collection out as of last autumn. I’m also reading Susanna Kearsley’s (a fellow Canadian) “The Rose Garden”. I love her books!
Make sure to check back later today for my review of Haunting Violet :)
