Author Interview with Haiku Answers: A.C. Gaughen

Stopping in today is Scarlet author A.C. Gaughen, but instead of answering her interview in the usual style, I've challenged her to respond only on haiku form.

Describe Scarlet.

Anger, violence, loss--
Can these things be forgiven?
The heart will bear out.

What was the hardest part of doing a Robin Hood retelling?

Old song with new words
May sound the same, but--
People loved the first.

If you could pair Scarlet with any character from any book, who would you pick?

Ocean eyes, wheat hair--
Scar would heal with Robin Hood
Her heart made for his.

What god/goddess would be your nemesis?

Hera was always
Defined by Zeus’ power.
That sucks, for a girl.

What Starbucks drink would you describe yourself as?

Caramel drizzle--
Or! Mint hot chocolate
Or! Black Iced tea. Love.

Thank you, A.C., and awesome job on the haikus!

Scarlet hits shelves Tuesday, so be sure you check it out!


  1. Robin Hood is my absolutely favorite so I'm really looking forward to reading Scarlet. Thanks for an awesome interview! I loved the answer for the nemesis question :)

  2. This is a very clever way to do an interview, with the haiku answers. I loved it! The book cover is gorgeous, too:)
