How's the first week of May going for you? Are we done with all the "April showers?" Let's hope so.
We've got a treat for you today. M.Black is here to answer a few questions and talk about her new book.
SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.
MB: LEXI019 has been a prisoner of the Compound run by Tins for twelve years. Her younger brother and mother both died of the illness. The last time she saw her father was when the Tins dragged her out of the van and threw her into the Compound when she was just five. She never knew what happened to him, but she is determined to find him one day. She made friends with a rat she found hiding in the air vents, one of few biological lifeforms that she’s seen in a long time.
SC: We're all about the supernatural here. Do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?
MB: I believe in ghosts, yes. I didn’t used to, but when I was in college and slept at a friends house—she was an exchange student staying at a host family. An old couple who used to have a daughter—I saw a girl in the room I slept in, more like a collection of light really. She hovered over me when I plopped on the bed. I closed my eyes and rubbed them and she was still there. I would think the only other possible explanation would be a high-tech hologram device, but it wasn’t. Another friend stayed the night there too, but at a different time and told me what she saw. The same thing. So, I knew it was something and not my imagination.SC: Quite the experience, thanks for sharing it with us. What titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?
MB: ELECTRIC GARDENS, ELECTRIC GRIDS, ELECTRIC WARS, ELECTRIC ENDS. I am finishing the last book in this series now and editing the third. The second book has just been released!SC: How exciting! Best of luck with your series. We'd better let you get back to it.
