{Character Interview} Anne of 'Awakening: Dreamers' Realm One

We’re thrilled to be talking to Anne from Karen Arnpriester’s, Awakening: Dreamers' Realm One.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Anne.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Seriously, you think I’m going to tell you how old I am? I have the benefit of concealing my age here in the Dream Realm. I’m certainly not going to shatter the illusion for you. (pause) I am a lawyer. I help people, especially pathetic, stupid women. Try to prove differently and you will be taken care of.

What would I love the most about you?

I am a successful woman in a male dominated industry. I clawed my way up to the top on my own, without anyone’s help. If you get in my way, I will go through you to get what I want. I am a real success story for women today.

What would I hate the most about you?

My superior intellect and success. When you compare your pathetic existence to my life, you will hate the fact that you can never be me.

Where do you go when you are angry?

I don’t go anywhere. I assign one of my men, and they take care of the problem … quickly and discreetly.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

I’m sure whatever I desire, but you’d have to ask my servant if you want a list.

What is your greatest fear?

I do not experience fear, I ensure others do.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

No, she sympathizes with Luce and Richard. Like they are so good? Lucinda is naive and self-absorbed. Richard just wants to keep Lucinda happy, so he gets what he wants. They are both pathetic hypocrites that hide behind their religion. I was not given the respect for what I brought to the story.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

Time alone with Luce … her in shackles and a fully equipped tool chest.

Are you a loner or do you prefer to surround yourself with friends?

I don’t invest any time or energy in friends. They just want to suck the life out of you when they need a shoulder to cry on or money. I prefer my crew. They do whatever I tell them, and they don’t dare to expect anything other than our contract terms.

Do you have children?

No. They are the ultimate energy suckers. Worse than friends.

About the Book:

The horror of her sister's abduction and Lucinda’s guilt manifest into years of acute insomnia. She appears to be miraculously healed when she participates in a test program that provides restful sleep but awakens a new dream realm … an alternative existence where Lucinda can create and manipulate any fantasy inspired by her imagination. Lucinda’s new realm is shattered by a dark evil that lurks there. Evil that is not confined to nightmares, but a sinister foe that also hunts for victims in the real world. Lucinda's discarded spiritual beliefs resurface and prompt her to begin a perilous journey against this very real threat; a heartless creature that destroys innocent lives. The dream realm, spiritual domain and Lucinda’s physical reality integrate and twist together as Lucinda rediscovers her faith and confronts the monster that threatens her very life and those she loves.

Thank you for your interview, Jaedus Sunwright.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?

“Most say my raven hair is very distinguishable.”

What would I hate the most about you?

“To my home to do experiments on dead bodies.”

What makes you laugh out loud?

“Sick Irony.”

What is the trait you most not like about yourself?

“I wish I could be more controlled like my grandfather Paris Sunwright.”

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

“I think he did the best job he could.”

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?

“I would be taller like my grandmother Suadela.”

Who is your best friend?

“My father.”

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

“Go all out to kill my two most hated enemies.”

About the Author

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My ongoing series The Sunwright Chronicles is a culmination of fifteen years of creating a unique living world with a rich history. I am currently writing the third book in the series. Besides writing I enjoy computer gaming, reading, playing the guitar and watching the history and science channels. My favorite activity though, is hanging out with my awesome family.

My latest book is the fantasy, The Sunwright Chronicles: A New World.
