My friend Suzanne de Montigny hit upon doing interviews with characters, specifically, the antagonists of our respective books.
Antagonists are necessary otherwise the story goes like this:
Once upon a time, there was a princess.
She grew up, got married, and everyone was happy.
Pretty dull. Stories are driven by the poor choices and the bad acts of shallow characters, weak people, stubborn people, greedy creatures darker or sharper than we'd hope to know in our own circle of friends. Thus, the villain becomes critical to the story, driving the action. So who are these difficult people that make everything follow? We decided to do a villain (excuse me) antagonist exchange.
With this as a prelude, I give you an interview from my encounter with The Shadow of the Unicorn: The Legacy.
