I am excited to have Inara Scott by the blog today as part of her blog tour for The Marked!
Inara Scott is the author of Delcroix Academy (The Talents) and The Marked, as well as two adult novels, Rules of Negotiation and Radiant Desire. You can find her on the web at her website, blog, Goodreads, and Twitter.
If the characters from The Marked 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?
I assume we are putting aside any special, ahem, talents these individuals might have. Because that would make solving this problem too easy. ;-)
So…even though she’s just starting to figure this out, the truth is that Dancia is a problem solver and a leader. She might not know the most of all the people in the group, but she’d be the one to pull together all the information they do have. Jack is tough, but he doesn’t trust anyone and would have a hard time working with the group. Cam would help keep everyone motivated and together, but I don’t think he’d come up with the most creative ideas.
So I think Jack would probably fare the worst (poor Jack!), Cam and Dancia would make sure the rest of the group worked together, and Dancia would end up getting them off the island. :-)
Given the opportunity, where would you love to travel to?
Oh, I’d love love love to go to New Zealand and Australia. The scenery is so beautiful (I’d have LOTR fantasies the whole time I was in NZ!), and the people seem incredibly nice. And I’d really like to snorkle around the Great Barrier Reef, although I’d be terrified the whole time that I was going to be eaten by Jaws.
What two characters from two of your books would be friends?
Hmm…Well, this will make more sense after you’ve read The Marked, but I think Barrett and Jack could be great friends. Barrett would make Jack laugh, which would be good for him. Jack can be a little too serious sometimes. LOL.
Did The Marked have a theme song at all?
Not really–would you pick one for me? :-) I can’t write with music playing, so I don’t have playlists for my books. I wish I did!
What has been one of your favorite moments since being published?
A few months after the first Delcroix book came out, I got a incredible letter from a girl who is dyslexic who said she normally hates to read (because it’s hard and takes her a long time) but she loved The Talents and was now considering reading more books because of it. That was amazing. Probably the other would have been traveling on tour for the first Delcroix book release. I felt like such a rock star.

All of her life, Dancia Lewis has wanted to use her powers for good. And now that she’s learned the truth about Delcroix Academy—and herself—she may just get the chance. But being part of Delcroix’s top secret Program isn’t anything like Dancia expected. She has to ask herself: what happens to the Talented kids who refuse to pledge their loyalty to the Program? And why did her friend Jack run away rather than join? Dancia’s adorable boyfriend Cam insists they need the help of every Talented student to defend Delcroix from dangerous enemies outside their gates. But Dancia has to wonder: what if Delcroix’s most frightening enemies come from within?
