Crazy/Awkward Interview – Catherine Peace
Today Catherine Peace stopped by for a crazy/awkward interview. She’s got a sweet book out called This Time Next Year check out the blurb:
Vampire Kiernan Shaw has never forgotten the night twenty years ago when he’d been forced to stand by while another vampire killed a six-year-old girl’s parents in front of her. He’s spent the better part of the last two decades watching over her, protecting her and hoping for an opportunity to make amends one day.
Ever since surviving the vampire attack that killed her parents, Moira Curran has dealt with the resulting nightmares and abandonment issues the only way she could—by throwing herself into her biochemistry career, preferring a life of a hermit in her lab to facing the reality of her lonely life.
Madame Eve brings them back together for one fateful night. An immediate bond of sizzling chemistry and respect forms, but can it heal her fears and his guilt?

Crazy/Awkward Interview with Catherine Peace
*gestures at the empty seat beside her* Hey, Catherine! Since you read the EULA at the door and STILL walked in, I now have control over your nervous system for the duration of this interview. *snaps her fingers and makes Catherine sit* *smiles sweetly* Want a piece of fancy chocolate or cheese? *eyes carefully to see which is picked*
Fancy chocolate please. (Hopes for good grade)
So your one-night stand “This Time Next Year” came out in July and it looks hot. Guilty vampires and sizzling bio-chemistry…er…chemistry, count me in! I gotta ask, does anything freaky occur with a bunsen burner?
Sadly, no. The Castillo resorts have many things, but not Bunsen burners. Although, Moira does consider setting Kiernan on fire with a taper candle.
That leads me into my next question:
Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve done with chemistry equipment?
A:I accidentally created Miley Cyrus. Sorry, guys.
Q: You and your lab partners engineer a sentient race of slugs. What country do they take over first and what is their first act as slimy dictators?
A:France, since the French like to eat snails (escargot? Really, France?). They then slime all over every French chef and take over the French Culinary Institute as their home base.
Q: How do you feel about amoebas?
Q: You spot an insect the size of a small woodland animal on the wall, you A) scream, run out of the room, and then call for back-up B) “take care of it” like a boss, C) create a rube goldberg machine to usher it outside D) name it Bertha and offer it a crust of old bread. Which do you pick?
A:If it’s not a spider, then C. If it is, then I propose an option E) in which I scream, light a match, toss the match on the spider, and then proceed to live out the rest of my life with the intense paranoia that that spider’s spider family are gonna come after me like a freaking spider mafia.
Q: Give us a “your mom” joke.
A:Yo mama is dumb that she can’t even solve a second-order non-homogeneous differential equation! …Moira would get that one.
Q: Favorite condiment? (Bonus points for odd uses for said condiment.)
A:Squid ink. It’s awesome for making people think their food is poisoned. Use it on Halloween to make people think they have leprosy.
Q: A TV producer taps you to come up with a half-hour TV show. What’s it called and what’s the premise?
A:It’s a great reality show about aspiring authors called “Like a Deer in Headlights,” you know, because we mostly look that way in public gatherings. Ten aspiring authors from different genres live in a house and vie for the publishing contract of their dreeeeeeeeeams. They also get famous authors writing coaches and get to pitch to editors from the top genre publishers. Hijinks, sabotage, and panic attacks ensue.
Q: What is your favorite spitting creature?
A:That awesome small dinosaur from Jurassic Park. You know, the one that eats Newman? It’s awesome. I want one as a pet.
Q: Fill in the blank: If I had a ____________, I’d be able to win at ____________.
A:If I had a toupee like Donald Trump, I’d be able to win at quidditch.
