For More Information
It’s a pleasure to have you here today, Sophie. Can you tell us what your new book is about?
It's the story of a woman who is more than one woman, each of her alternate personalities having different behaviors and living lives of their own. How this happened to occur will eventually be revealed as the story progresses with the help of a handsome young psychiatrist.
Can you tell us a little about your main and supporting characters?
Katrina is what psychologists term the host personality, the original person holding all the others together, and I'd consider her the main character. She's introverted and cautious, not very approachable when it comes to intimate relationships, and she is typically sensible and pragmatic. Then there's Cherry, a reckless adventuress and nymphomaniac getting into all sorts of sexy situations. The third person, Anisa, is a dark, calculating, cold-hearted black ops government agent.
Your book is not set in any specific location. Can you tell us why?
The story intentionally lacks any specific geographical setting. It could be anywhere, or nowhere. I thought that such obscurity would add an element of surrealism.
Open the book to page 69. What is happening?
Good choice for a page number, considering Girl Within Girl is a work of dark erotica. Depending on the format you have, page 69 is the start of chapter 13, when Katrina wakes up in her apartment dressed in clothes that are not her own. She also remembers finding other things in her apartment that do not belong to her, and realizes she has multiple personalities.
What has been the most pivotal point of your writing life?
Gee, I don't think I arrived there yet.
What kind of advice would you give other fiction authors?
That's a tough question. This is my first book. I'm the one who should be asking for advice. But I'll say one thing: write for the sake of it, and have fun doing it. Keep in mind though, marketing is a pain in the ass!
