(Blog Tour) Character Interview: Chloe (DREAMWALK)

Sarah MacManus makes things up and then writes them down. She lives in the middle of the United States, but feels at home anywhere with a river. In the mundane world, she works as a freelance technical writer.

In SarahSpace, she spends her time rescuing princes from ravening monsters, restoring ancient races to their rightful place and making secret, shameful wishes come true.

Sarah loves the East Village, indie music, Cornish pasties, the smell of rain, Spitalfields, biochemistry and all shades of blue.

Sarah's work has appeared in the literary journal The Battered Suitcase and she has a poem forthcoming in an anthology from Little Episodes.

What five words would you use to best describe yourself?
Optimistic, introverted, tentative, observant, intelligent

If you could live anywhere, where would you choose?
I’m willing to give New York another try after I’m finished with college. I didn’t like it at first – too busy, too noisy, too strange. But after a couple of years in Adelaide, where the land and the sea seem to stretch forever, I could use some noise and some busy.

If your life were a movie, what five songs would you want to have on the soundtrack?
My Immortal by Evanescence
What Katie Did by The Libertines
Whenever, Wherever by Shakira
Bitterweet Symphony by The Verve
And of course,
Temporal Tantrum by Shane Anderson

Who would you cast to play you?
I’d really love to cast Emma Watson, but her American accent isn’t too convincing, is it? Maybe my friend Katie Simon could play me in the movie, although I admit that I’m a little terrified of her sense of humor.

What is your favorite book of all time? Why?
I guess I would have to say “The Canterbury Tales” by Geoffrey Chaucer – it’s got everything: romance, adventure, honor, duty; it’s a little hard to read, but once you decode the language, it’s warm and lovely and inspiring. I always find some core of compassion for my fellow human beings inside me when I read it.

What is your favorite book of all time? Why? What is your favorite season?I love Spring. That’s when you feel your blood bubble and want to ride on your toes to go faster. It’s alive.

I received an electronic copy of DREAMWALK as part of a book tour arranged by TEEN BOOK SCENE .
