We’re thrilled to be talking to Ophelia from Arielle Strauss’, The Wraith Trilogy. She is coming to us all the way from the great state of Ohio. It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!
Thank you for your interview, Ophelia. Can you tell us your story?
I most certainly can! And thank you for having me.
Where do you go when you are angry?
Oh that’s easy. I just disappear!
What is your greatest fear?
What are three must haves when shopping at the grocery store?
I have no need to go there. Anything I eat just goes straight through me.
If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?
I would be warmer to the touch.
Who is your best friend?
It’s a tie between Todd Nichols and Lenora Scabbia. I would be lost without them.
Someone is secretly in love with you. Who is it and how do you feel about that?
Eddie makes it no secret. I used to like him a lot, but then he got weirdly obsessed…
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to write children’s stories. I like books that rhyme and that make you think outside of the box.
What is your most treasured possession?
My stuffed white rabbit. I call him Marvin.
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?
I’m already dead, but that doesn’t stop me from living life to the fullest!

Forced to conceal her undead identity from the world, and struggling to remain visible to the humans around her, how will she ever manage to convince her dearest friend of the truth? Or muster the courage to tell her beautiful gym partner that she just may be in love with her? And, with no memory of her death, how will Ophelia solve the mystery of her murder?

The Huntress - Ophelia's been dead for several weeks, but she's still around. Yet other students at Ohio University are dropping like flies, never to return. Surely the most haunted campus in America is home to other wraiths like herself? Ophelia is determined to find them—and to discover the truth about why she continues to dwell in the world of mortals. But faced with a mysterious clan of ghost hunters closing in, threatening to end her unlife, three meddlesome (and crotchety) divine beings determined to control her new existence, and a best friend with more than friendly feelings for the love of her life, how long will Ophelia be able to hide the truth of her death—and her destiny?
