'Shadow Fall' by Laura Griffin
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. I can't stand long-winded phone messages.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. At the beach drinking a margarita.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Heights make me dizzy, so it amazes me that I let my college roommate talk me into skydiving. I thought I would have a heart attack, and then it was one of the most exhilarating things I've ever done.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. Of all the villains in fiction, I might have to say Hannibal Lecter. The genius of Lecter is that Thomas Harris created a terrifying villain with a sympathetic side. Anyone who saw the movie Silence of the Lambs knows what I mean... Who wasn't rooting for Lecter to take out the psychologist at the end of the film?
