I am super excited to have a chance to be a part of this awesome event!! I am
hosting an Author that is new to me but after reading the book description and
the fun character interview, I am so glad I got paired up with her!!!
Fifteen-year-old Veronica “Ronnie” Lambert wants to get out from under her older brother’s shadow. When Ronnie gets a tattoo and then is struck by lightning, she suddenly finds herself able to see and hear things in shadows that don’t appear to others. Then Ronnie meets Gavin Clearwater, the hot new guy in all of her classes and finds out he can see and hear the same things she can.
Gavin tells her about the Spiral Defenders, a group of warriors that travels through space and time to defend the planets of the Spiral. After meeting the Commander of the Spiral Defenders and realizing his intentions might not be pure, Ronnie struggles between following her destiny to become a Spiral Defender and trying to regain the life she had before being struck by lightning.
Today I have an interview with Into the Spiral’s leading lady, Ronnie Lambert.
Starting high school is a huge step towards becoming an adult. What was one thing you were most looking forward to?
Well, I would have to say I was looking forward to being my own person. When I got my tattoo, I made up a little motto for myself: my body, my mind, my life. I felt like I was finally becoming someone other than my brother’s little sister. I also had my eye on a certain guy and hoped to make him my boyfriend. *blushes* I definitely did not expect to have everything waylaid.
What did you first think of Gavin? What changed your mind about him?
At first I thought he was totally annoying. He was THERE—everywhere I went! But then he saved my life a couple times and I began to realize he wasn’t really the jerk I thought he was.
What did you think when Gavin told you about Kalearnia and becoming a Spiral Defender?
My first thought was that he was a little crazy. But then, he showed me that he was telling the truth and I had to believe him—after everything that had already happened to me, it was too crazy not to believe. I think I’m nervous about becoming a Spiral Defender, especially the part about going to live on another planet. And the last revelation Gavin made that still has my head spinning.
Ooh? What did he say?
I really can’t say. It would spoil the book!
Okay, last question before we’ll do a speed round. Now you said you’d hoped to get a boyfriend. Is Gavin the guy you’d hoped to get?
*blushes* No. The guy I’d hoped to get was Shawn, one of my best friends who I’d been crushing on forever. We did go out on one date, but things fell apart when he found me and Gavin together—not that anything happened! *laughs* Shawn and I managed to make up, but there’s no future for us anymore.
