Character Interview by June Sproat

Kate Sterns, the MC from my YA Ordinary Me, stopped by this weekend for a quick visit and I asked her a couple questions for my blog. Here’s the interview….

AA: On behalf of Acme Authors Blog, please welcome Kate Sterns.

Kate: Um, thanks, this is so weird. I have never been interviewed before. Not even when I hit that guy, or rather, he hit me, well not me exactly, but the car I was driving. Anyway, no one interviewed me then, not unless you consider the cops talking to me an interview, ‘cause I certainly didn’t.

AA: O….K… So, now that sophomore year is over, what are your big summer plans?

Kate: Well, first I have to complete a few more driving hours then I’m going to get my license. At least I hope I get my license, but since they didn’t hold the whole moving violation thing against me, I have a good chance, don’t you think?

AA: yes…

Kate: I mean, it wasn’t like it was my fault or anything. I did exactly what my driving teacher told me to do. Well, not exactly. I did turn when he said to, just the wrong way, but that really wasn’t my fault. I was nervous and then I got the whole left and right thing mixed up, which is not uncommon, no matter what my best friend Jody says. And really, what does Jody know. She isn’t even in driver’s ed yet. She has no clue what it’s like under all that pressure. Well she’s going to find out because she is taking it next semester. Do you know she actually asked me that if I have my license by September, which I totally plan on having thank you very much, and since she will already have her permit, she wanted to know if I would let her drive my car to school. I was like “What car? I don’t have a car.” And then she made this funny face and I thought maybe my parents are going to get me a car for my birthday. And when I asked them, they laughed. They just laughed in my face. Can you believe it? My dad just mumbled something about summer job and I never heard the rest because I stuck my ear buds in and planned ways to kill Jody.

AA: Well, yes, thanks for that, Kate, but I have run out of room, er time. Yes we are out of time for the interview. Drop by again if you want!

Have a great week!

Thank you for the awesome interview with Kate and I TOTALLY agree with her--driving is hard. I hope that Kate and the interviewer both have a fabulous summer and that I'll see one of them soon.

Kate ~ glad you're aware how hard driving is ... and don't be too anxious for an interview with the cops! This interview was fun, the other might not be!
