BHSV–Interview w/ Sterling Packard by Carolyn Crane + SIGNED “Mind Games” Giveaway!

56 Lovely Comments!
 
Bookish-Haven-Summer-Vacation-Banner[3]
 

What? It’ s the end of June already? I’ ve been slaving away at my computer this summer, with the occasional walk outside. Writers tend to lead pretty boring - and busy - lives. That’ s why you don’ t see any reality shows with writers in them. We would just sit there in front of our computers.

HOWEVER, characters are another story. That’ s the thing about characters - most of them don’ t have jobs. Heck, they don’ t even do chores!

Do you see many characters doing laundry? Has Justine Jones ever once shaved her legs? Has Shelby ever cleaned a sink? Has Sterling Packard ever cleaned a cat litter box?

The answer is NO. Instead, these bums have endless free time to visit with each other and solve mysteries and get into trouble.

So instead of talking about my summer, I’ m going to ask Packard about his summer.

Hey Packard, what are you up to this summer?

Packard: Did you just call us bums?

Carolyn: Yes, but you know I didn’ t mean it. So what are you up to this summer?

Packard: I can’ t tell you, or I’ d ruin the series for readers. But I think, of all people, you know that I’ ve been up to things.

Carolyn: Yes, you have, haven’ t you? Do you want to give our readers a hint?

Packard: Big things.

Carolyn: * grins* Okay, let’ s talk about what you wish you were doing this summer. You have always loved beaches.

Packard: My ideal summer would definitely involve a beach, Carolyn.

Carolyn: Did you love beaches before you were trapped in the Mongolian Restaurant for 8 years?

Packard: No. Back then, I felt like beaches were more for families and young singles with frisbees, not so much for tortured masterminds.

Carolyn: Right, because what would a tortured mastermind wear to a beach? Plaid slacks with a
polyester sports coat? And unibomber sunglasses?

Packard: * long stony silence * If, in one of your books, you send me to a beach in plaid slacks with a polyester sports coat, and unibomber sunglasses, I will go on strike.

Carolyn: How about if I send Otto to the beach in that outfit?

Packard: * looks thoughtfully into the distance* I wouldn’ t stop you.

Carolyn: Do you know how to play frisbee? Or swim?

Packard: You know I don’ t. I might as well have been raised by wolves.

Carolyn: Right. My fault. And we all know who you WISH you could go to the beach with.

Packard: Yes you know who I wish to go to the beach with, don’ t you? I wish she was with me all the time. I’ m miserable without her. Happy? Carolyn, if you’ re feeling angry that you’ re spending this summer inside banging away at a keyboard, don’ t take it out on me by reminding me of things I desperately want but don’ t currently have.

Carolyn: Never mind, we’ re in no comment territory. What else? A beach ball. You would need a nice bright bouncy beach ball.

Packard: * total silence*

Carolyn: What if I found you a black beach ball? Would that be more appropriate for a tortured
mastermind?

Packard: No. But maybe a dog. I’ ve always wanted a dog.

Carolyn: Really? A dog?

Packard: I never had a dog of my own.

Carolyn: That’ s kind of sweet.

Packard: * shrugs *

Carolyn: * stares off thoughtfully, then rushes off to her laptop, leaving Packard brooding.*

      Wow. Packard is - aside from intense, of course - cute. Who knew?

    3. I have not read this series yet and I would love the chance to move it up on my list!

      Thanks!

    4. Andie says:

      I haven't read this series yet, but now I absolutely have to. :)

    9. Amy says:

      Thanks for the entertaining interview! I loved it, especially the "big things" part! ;)

    10. Birgit says:

      I really like the cover of the book. Far too often tough girls end up looking a wee bit too sexy and I feel I can't take a character all that serious if that's the case. But this one? Yep. perfect. Cute but at the same time one tough cookie!

    37. I started to read this post and started to disagree about writers leading a boring life - they live in their imagination!! But then of course you continue reading, and I couldn't agree more that the characters they create are anything but boring.

      Wonderful post!
