To celebrate the release of Fortune’s Well Book 1 – Hangman’s Revenge we are sharing a couple of character interviews! Next up is Darcie Duffield, one of our main protagonists.
1. Who is your best friend?
I could tell you it’s Vicky Marshall, but that wouldn’t be completely true. My real best friend is my aunt Jenna… which is weird, because she’s dead. I know. Messed up. But sometimes I like to talk to her still. It makes me feel ok for just a minute.
2. Who is your worst enemy?
Well, that one’s easy – Jared Wheeler.
3. What do you think people think of you?
Unfortunately, I don’t think people think of me at all.
4. What do you wish people knew about you?
That I’m more than just good grades and good genes. There’s more to me than meets the eye. It sounds silly, but I feel like I’m meant to do great things.
5. What’s your biggest fear?
Losing myself and becoming exactly who they want me to be. But lately… lately I think my biggest fear is what will happen to my new friend, JJ Carson, if I can’t help him in time.
6. What’s your biggest hope?
My hope is for JJ and his mother to reconnect. Perhaps make up for all the lost time. Who knows, maybe I can do the same with my own mom…
7. What’s your biggest secret?
The girl in the mirror. I’m the only one who sees her and she sees me right back.
8. What is the worst thing you have done to another person?
I hurt someone. Bad. At least, I was part of what happened to them. Even worse I ran and covered up the truth. But sometimes bad people deserve bad things… right?
9. What kind of friend are you?
Loyal and fierce.
10. What are your worst habits?
I bite my lip pretty much whenever I’m anxious, or nervous, or just generally over thinking situations. It’s terrible. I’m surprised I have a mouth left at all!
11. What is one thing about yourself that you would change if you could?
I wish what was on the inside would shine through more. That people could see that before they see the rest of me.
12. What is one thing about yourself that you would never change?
I’m very inquisitive and that definitely comes in handy when I need it. I guess I must get that from my dad. He’s a head researcher for Bio Chem, a large pharmaceutical company.
13. Where would you like to be in 5 years time?
Right now? Any where but Fortune’s Well. There’s something about this place that I can’t put my finger on. But I will find out what it is. I know I will. It’s in my nature. And that scares me.
14. What is on your bucket list?
Not many people know this, but I love to write. I want to write this down someday, everything that’s happening with JJ and me. An epic adventure I can capture forever.
