Crazy/Awkward Interview – Bronwyn Green
Today blog favorite, and Trauma Llama Queen Bronwyn Green stopped by for a crazy/awkward interview. Her third book in the Witch Way series, Elemental Enchantment, is out! Check out the blurb:
Photographer Meaghan Boulton thinks a steamy one-night stand with a member of the bridal party seems like a great idea. And it is…until the ghost of a missing child shows up in the wedding photos and her one-night stand turns out to be a cop who suspects her of being involved in the child’s abduction.
Eli Jones is having a rough week. The woman of his dreams—the woman he’s been infatuated with since high school—skips out of his hotel room after the hottest hook-up of his life. Worse, she’s got information on a kidnapping that she couldn’t possibly have—unless what she says is true and she’s a witch.
Despite the cloud of suspicion that hovers between them, they need to work together to find the missing child. When it’s over, will anything be left of their passion to salvage?

Crazy/Awkward Interview with Bronwyn Green
*gestures at the empty seat beside her* Hey, Bronwyn! Er…hang on a second. *moves her evil Willow action figure off the cushion* Ah, there you go. Want a piece of fancy chocolate or cheese? *eyes carefully to see which is picked*
*gives evil Willow figure the side-eye worrying that the words “Bored now” will be spoken and frantically digs in oversized purse for a yellow crayon to give evil Willow as a peace offering*
Hey, Anya. *gives Anya the side-eye while reaching for the cheese knowing it’s the wrong answer but unable to resist the cheesy goodness* Thanks for having me here, and thanks for the cheese!
So a guy infatuated with a gal since high school? That sounds sexy…or was that a puppy love kind of thing?
It was a puppy-love thing in high school, but when they run into each other again, there’s nothing remotely sweet about it. It’s all hot all the time.
That leads me into my next question:
Q: In high school, were you more likely to be infatuated with a) a jock b) a nerd c) a book boyfriend d) something chocolate covered e) nothing, you were too busy being awesome for infatuation.
A: I was torn between the book boyfriend and the nerd, however, it could be noted that I married my high school nerd four years after I graduated.
Q: If you were haunted by an annoying ghost, who/what would it be? Bonus: What would be its catchphrase/motto?
A: Honestly, I wouldn’t mind being haunted by my cat Tamerlyn Catkin (aka Small – who was not at all small. She was a giant calico-tabby cow cat.) She wouldn’t have a motto – but she would stick her butt in my face constantly and lay on my keyboard, and I wouldn’t even care because I miss her still.
Q: You’re the first one at the writing retreat cabin this year. You discover a colony of creatures in the nearby lake. They declare you their empress. Describe them in a brief sentence. What are they called? Bonus: What do they shower you with? How do you use them for good/evil?
A: Excellent…I’ve always wanted to be Empress of the Naiads, and I’m convinced they live in Lake Superior. They’re humanoid forms made of water – they’re sinuous and seductive and they enjoy drowning humans and stealing their souls.
I’d *like* to say I’d use them for evil and my own gain, but really, I’d probably use them for good and command them to reinforce all of the scary-ass oil pipelines that run beneath the Great Lakes to keep them from leaking and destroying the water and the wildlife.
Oh, and they shower me with pretty stones (I’m a real cheap date) and sunken treasures from all the ships that have gone down in Superior.
Q: How do you feel about emus?
A: I like their heads…they remind me of the bird headed guy in Labyrinth. However, their bodies give me some cause for concern – they’re just so awkward. I worry that they’ll fall over and won’t able to get up again.
Q: You stumble on a horrible secret. Chocolate is about to go extinct! What do you do?
A: Well, I don’t care about the milk chocolate, but I find all the dark chocolate and hoard the hell out of it. My family may eventually forget what chocolate tastes like…but I won’t.
Q: I understand you’re into skirts. Describe your favorite one.
A: I do love a good hippie skirt. My favorite one is a four-tiered, tie dyed number in shades of gunmetal gray, deep blues and browns. It goes with nearly everything and it flares way out when I spin in circles…which I sometimes do.
Q: You win a dream contest for your favorite movie, book, or TV show. The characters are coming to your house to reenact your favorite scene, this time staring you! Nothing is off limits. What scene do you choose? Bonus: Do you let your family and friends watch?
A: Duuuuudddeeee…this is so hard. I mean, do I go with Buffy? Supernatural? Firefly? (Pass on Hannibal…) Merlin? Nah…pretty sure I’d go off script there. Oh! I know – the scene in Game of Thrones where Daenerys seduces Drogo? I’m in. That scene is hot as hell. Of course, we’d need multiple takes. Really, it would probably take days to get it right. And I’m gonna say no on family and friends time for that scene.
Q:What kind of Peep is the best Peep?
A: A decapitated Peep.
Q:Fill in the blank: You wake up inside the show Merlin. You hope you are ___________ and that you get to ___________ with ___________.
A: I hope I’m Mithian (one of Arthur’s marriage prospects) and I hope I at least get to have a fling with Arthur. (I love me some Gwen, but Mithian was such a great match for him.)
GREAT answers to everything but the Peep answer is an instant A+++ in my book 😉
