An Interview With Katherine Fauccet and Kristen Willowfeather

Please give a warm welcome to Katherine Fauccet and Kristen Willowfeather, the protagonists of my most recently completed NaNoWriMo novel Secrets. They ventured here all the way from Zundra. And here to interview them, Hermione Granger! (Just kidding). No, the person who is really interviewing them is a random maid from the castle in the Kingdom of Zundra. And, who knows? Maybe the maid is the person who is trying to kill the queen. (Dun dun dunnnnnn).

Will you please introduce yourselves and give us the basics? 

Katherine: Of course! My name is Katherine Fauccet, I'm 12-years-old, and I will tell your more about my family later. (Katherine winks).

Kristen: I'm Kristen Willowfeather, I'm also 12-years-old, and I will also tell you more about my family later.

Katherine: Copycat.

Well then, tell us about your families.

Katherine: Well, there's my mom, who has a strange obsession with sewing and making clothes, and then there's my dog Sweetie. My dad was bitten by a werewolf when I was a baby and died soon after that. Apparently the werewolf was very aggressive.

Kristen: My mom died giving birth to my youngest sister. I have my dad, who taught Katherine everything he knows about carpentry, then there's Alyssa, who is lazy and always wants to be the center of attention, then there's Sophia who loves dancing, and Hope who copies everything her older sisters do. I also have a dog named Lion, though he doesn't look remotely scary or like a lion at all, really.

Please tell us more about your hobbies. 

Katherine: I love anything that has to do with the outdoors. I like to explore, build things made of wood, and practice my combat skills.

Kristen: I like to sew, listen to music people play in town, read, write, and relax. Katherine and I are very different from each other.

What are your favorite outfits?

Katherine: A simple tunic and a pair of trousers. You can't get much more simple and comfortable than that.

Kristen: A plain dress. Nothing too fancy, but nothing dirty or old.

Who do you think is more in control: Yourselves or Kate?

(Katherine laughs).

Katherine: Verrrry much ourselves. I think Kate likes to think she's in control, but we're really the ones running the show.

Kristen: Same. We take Kate all over the place. I'm not sure what she had in mind, but whatever it was, we sure spiced it up.

Who is your greatest enemy and why?

Katherine: Whoever is trying to kill the queen. We're not sure who it is, but we know where their diary is and we keep reading it for clues. We'll find and catch them eventually.

Kristen: With some help from our closest friends Selena and Esther. I'd say our other greatest enemies would be any monsters in the Forest of Yojar.

Katherine: Especially the werewolves.

(Katherine and Kristen shudder).

What similarities do you see between yourselves and the two people your characters were based off of: Kate and Kirsten?

Katherine: Well Kate is funny, saracastic, and outgoing, but sometimes I can be a bit too . . . much. And Kate can plan ahead wayyyy better than I can.

Kristen: Kirsten can be shy and timid, but not nearly as much as I am. And I'm the main planner, most of the time, while in real life Kate is the main planner. I also think Kirsten's a bit more brave than I am.

Thank you for being on my blog, you guys! It's nice to see you out and about.

Katherine: You're welcome! But now we really have to go. We need to meet Esther and Selena. We're trying to figure out how to reveal the evil maid who is trying to kill Queen Talia Snowflower!

Kristen: Yes, thank you for having us!

Though I'm not sure who I will be interviewing next, you can be sure that I will interview two other characters soon! And be sure to read Day 14 of my 30-Day Blogging Challenge! :D

What an awesome idea! It's fun to get to know those characters better. I liked hearing what they thought were similarities to the people after whom they've been patterned. :)

Great interview! I wondered if they were patterned after people I knew. ;)
