The authors of Dark Matter: Artificial continue their responses from last post as we get to learn a little more about the rest of their characters!
The Prompt: Choose one character from your story in the anthology and have them answer these interview questions: What do you hope to accomplish in your story? What is your biggest dream? And...do you have a favorite ice cream flavor?
I'm picking the character of Aunt Faye from my story to interview. Though she's not the main character, she's very interesting to me!
What do you hope to accomplish in your story? In this story, I am both a comfort and a hope to my niece, Lindy, after she's suffered some devastating losses. My goal is to open her up to the idea of something beyond our known world, and to teach her that she can and should take action to find happiness.
What is your biggest dream? My biggest dream is to have humans become more open-minded about life, not just the one we experience here, but perhaps after we die, or on other planes of existence. I feel that we would all be kinder to one another if we weren't so focused on narrow possibilities about ourselves and our place in the world.
Do you have a favorite ice cream flavor? Yes! I love rocky road because of all the sweet and salty surprises it contains.
