Author Interview: Jennifer Shaw Wolf
Faced with a situation like Allie’s, would you want to find out the dark truth or remain unknowing?
Oh, this is a tough one. I would want to know the answer enough that I would keep pushing for the truth, but once I found out, I’d wish I’d remained in blissful ignorance. Vague enough?
It’s just Blake and a tiger in the ring of the Roman Coliseum. What happens? What about with Andrew or Trip?
Blake figures out a peaceful resolution and he and the lion part as friends. Andrew outsmarts the lion and gets away. Trip goes for brute force and gets eaten.
All of these characters had a “pair” from the book, but if I were to mix it up, I’d put Allie with Randall, Trip with Angie, and try Blake with Caitlyn.
If you were a demigod, what god/goddess would be your parent?
I love Artemis, but she’s sworn to be a virgin so her being my mom is kind of out. How about Colliope, the goddess muse of epic poetry? I can use all the inspiration I can get.
What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?
For some reason snicker doodle comes to mind. Really they’re just a plain round sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon and sugar, maybe with a little tartness or bitterness from the cream of tartar. I have a distinct memory of sitting with one of my first boyfriends, at his house, eating snicker doodles and talking with his mom so a snicker doodle brings back bittersweet memories for me. Maybe I’m a snicker doodle because on the outside I’m simple and sweet, but when you get to know me, or especially when you read my writing, I’m a little different then what you’d expect.
Thank you, Jennifer, and congrats on the upcoming release! I cannot wait to see it on the shelves!
This one hits shelves April 24 from Walker, but you really should just preorder it now. And if you're a blogger, it's now on Netgalley so go request!
