'Shadow Fall' by Laura Griffin
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Thankfully, nothing. I don't stand out in a crowd. I much prefer to hang back and observe people.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Heights make me dizzy, so it amazes me that I let my college roommate talk me into skydiving. I thought I would have a heart attack, and then it was one of the most exhilarating things I've ever done.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. I would love to be in some kick-ass law enforcement job. But I guess writing about people who are is the next best thing.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I would love to be able to play a musical instrument. And as long as this is fantasy, why not the violin? I saw a violin concert once that brought tears to my eyes.
