We’re thrilled to be talking to Terry from John Calicchia’s Mirror World. It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!
Thank you for your interview, Terry. Could you fold your wings so I can see your face?
Ok, thanks. Now, How old are you and what do you do for a living?
I’m a sophomore in high school, and I never tell anybody my true age!
Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?
That’s a hard one. My long read hair? No... I’d have to say it’s my wings when they pop out of my back. No wait! I got it! It’s definitely my claws, they are actually 12 inch long razor sharp blades that pop out of my knuckles when I’m scared or angry – very useful in a fight!
What would I love the most about you?
I love children. Read the Constantine chapter in Mirror World and see where I help the young Angels to learn a new song! It is awesome.
What is in your refrigerator right now?
Raw meat and beer. Just kidding! Mac & cheese, orange juice, ice cream and something healthy at the bottom that probably went rotten.
What is your greatest fear?
Letting someone I love die, because I’m not strong enough to save them.
I’m opening up your cabinet. What foods do I see?
Nothing, There’s too many rats and dwarfs around to keep anything in a cabinet. I have a huge lock on my fridge, that’s where I keep everything.
If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?
Uhmmm… My nose maybe? Nah! I was thinking my claws, they could be a little sharper. They sometime get caught on the vertebrate when I am cutting someones head off.
Who is your best friend?
Cailyssa, my sister, but don’t tell her it, it might ruin all the fights we have.
Do you have children?
No, not looking for that, I have lots to do before I settle down.
What is your most treasured possession?
My Ariel picture from Disney, she thought I was her sister with my Red Hair.
So don’t even try to tell me it’s not the real Ariel, I have the picture to prove it! Fantasy characters have REAL fantasy friends!
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?
Be with my family and enjoy their love.
About the Author
I’m John Calicchia and I write stories of fantasy, action and adventure. In the fall of 2015 my book Mirror World was released! It's a story of two powerful young sisters and their epic battle against evil. But, this book has something in it most do not: hidden secrets. It's a teen and young adult fiction book with a self-help book hidden inside. You see… after publishing in psychology books and journals for decades I felt my writing was not helping the young people I love to work with. So, I took famous psychology studies and put it in the characters and plot in Mirror World. As you become part of the story you can learn about psychology or you can just enjoy the story! You can also get a free copy of the users guide to help you understand the psychology behind the book by joining my website www.johncalicchia.com
John Calicchia Ph.D. is a professor of psychology who also works with children and young adults as a licensed psychologist. He lives near Boston with his lovely wife and two amazing daughters. You can usually find him in the pool swimming with his two big dogs.
