Q&A with Natasha Preston
What inspired AWAKE?
It started as a dream. I was surrounded by a circle of chanting people. It was NOT fun and I didn’t sleep the rest of the night.
Most of my books start as dreams. I’ve had many, many creepy dreams that will become books.
Tell us about the main characters in AWAKE?
Scarlett is a sixteen year old with a four year memory gap from her early years. She’s trusting, loyal and a little bit of a push over but discovers an inner strength she didn’t know she had.
Noah is a teenage boy who’s blinded by what he’s been taught. He struggles to come to terms with what he’s learning to be right and wrong.
If your book ever made it to the screen, who would you pick to play Scarlett?
Chloë Moretz. I watched If I Stay on the plane home from a signing and thought she’d be the perfect Scarlett.
If you could pick any author to write your next book with, who would you choose?
Stephen King. Mostly so I could just stare at him in awe for months.
And speaking of next books…what are you working on right now? What is your next book going to be about?
I have about 7 notebooks all filled with idea so I have plenty to write. If I could just have about 5 more hours in a day… As for my next book, it will be about murder. Yay. Actually, multiple murders and a mystery killer.
