Today you will have the pleasure of reading a fascinating interview with the main character of the highly anticipated paranormal fiction novel Clandestine. This will give you a deeper look at the character that you are bound to fall in love with once you read the book after it’s released. She is a multi faceted girl with an intriguing story to tell.
Me: What is your name?
Emily: My name is Emily Jameson, and I’m eighteen years old.
Me: Where do you live?
Emily: I live in a small hole in the wall town called Lakeview. It’s really boring there. Well, it used to be.
Me: When you say, “It used to be”. What do you mean by that?
Emily: It’s hard to explain, but I can tell you a little. Lakeview is a town where everyone knows everyone. They all are pretty friendly for the most part too. I can’t even walk to work without at least three people saying hi to me. But lately, it’s like the town of the dreaded sundown or something No one really talks to anyone anymore. They seem like they’re just goin through the motions or something.
Me: Has anyone else noticed the odd behavior?
Emily: If they have they’re not talking about it. The only one I know of for sure is my best friend Lucy. She has really heightened senses about things because of her disability. Plus, she’s just freakishly intuitive anyway.
Me: What is Lucy’s disability?
Emily: Oh, sorry I forgot to explain. She’s blind. I’m so used to it now I forget other people might not think of it as second nature like I do.
Me: That’s really interesting. What’s it like having a blind person as your best friend?
Emily: She acts like anyone else so it’s not really like anything having a blind friend. It’s honestly no different then having a friend who can see.
Me: So, do you have any theories on what’s going on in Lakeview?
Emily: I don’t know but I’m going to find out.
Me: You seem like a very brave young lady. I bet your parents have influenced that trait about you.
Emily: Who Sam? Yeah right. No, my dad hasn’t influenced me to be anything. We aren’t… close.
Me: Why is that?
Emily: Well, ever since my mom died he’s been in a funk. His drinking is out of control. We’ve never really been all that close but now our relationship is nonexistent. Well, unless you count him telling me when he wants dinner done and how I did the laundry wrong.
Me: I’m sorry to hear about that. And your mom… that must be so hard for you to have lost her at such a young age.
Emily: It’s really hard. I miss her every day but I’M still moving on. She got sick about five years ago and the next thing I knew she was gone. Before she got sick she was totally healthy. It still doesn’t make sense to me. The doctors couldn’t figure it out either. Sam wouldn’t let them do an autopsy though.
Me: Didn’t he want to know what really happened?
Emily: Apparently not. He said that an autopsy wouldn’t bring her back. I get that but it would have at least given us some answers. He’s the one who still can’t let her go but then in the same breath he’s all the past is the past. Now that I’m older, I told him if nothing else it would have let us know if she had some disease that I might be predisposed to inherit. He just told me some nonsense about not letting my future be tainted and then he left.
Me: Wow, it sounds like you do have a lot to figure out. For an eighteen year old you seem to have a good head on your shoulders. I’m sure you will get it all sorted. Do you have plans for your future?
Emily: Right now? I’m trying to figure out what’s taken over my town. For the future? Yeah, I’m getting the heck outta Lakeview as soon as possible.
Me: Hopefully things will get straightened out soon.
