I have treat for everyone today, I interviewed the lead in The Last Grimm: Red’s Hood.
Me: So, Abigail what is it like being the MC in Red’s Hood?
Abigail: Well, Heather, it is exciting. I’m never really sure what’s going to happen next. It’s a ton of fun. I love everyone I work with, okay almost everyone. There are a few who I won’t be sad to see go.
Me: Oh, do tell?
A: (laughs lightly) I can’t do that! That would spoil the story for everyone who hasn’t read it!
Me: Okay, were you surprised to be picked as the lead?
A: Sort of. I heard the author was going for someone who was taller, and a bit more brash than I was, but I guess there was something about me she liked.
Me: How do you feel about the love interest?
A: (Her face looked like a tomato) Connor? Well, he’s something else. His personality is a lot like it’s written. He’s very confident, and caring. I couldn’t have asked for a better co-star.
Me: Just confident and caring?
A: Okay, so he’s incredibly gorgeous. It doesn’t hurt that he’s good-looking.
Me: What is it like going to college, and saving the world?
A: It’s hard. I did not see myself doing this at 18. Not at all.
Me: Now, this is a Little Red Riding Hood story, what exactly is your role?
A: I am Abigail Grimm, the last in a long line of fairy tale guardians. At the beginning of the story I have no clue about it. After a few incidents happen, I find out about everything. Not only am I the last, but I have this crazy special ability that helps me save the day.
Me: A crazy, special ability?
A: Yes, I can speak characters into and out of fairy tales.
Me: Is it just Grimm fairy tales?
A: I honestly have no idea. I never tried with any other stories.
Me: Do you plan on it?
A: I don’t know. (she laughs loudly)
Me: What do you plan to do now that Red’s Hood has been released?
A: Well, we’re working on the next book in the series now, Snow. And there will be at least 1, if not 2, more after that. So, I’ll be busy with The Last Grimm series for some time.
Me: What has it been like?
A: Amazing. I’ve never done anything like this before, and I just love it. I will admit that my special scene was, different. VERY different. I was embarrassed about it at first, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. The big battle scene was super scary. I had never done anything like that. I didn’t think I had it in me.
Me: I have read it, and you were amazing. The chemistry that you and Connor share is…hot. Is there chemistry off the pages?
A: Well…you know.
Me: While reading the book, I couldn’t help but notice the tense relationship between you and your mother, what is that all about?
A: Well, mom is a bit of an emotional basket case. You’ll find out in the story about what happened when she was pregnant with me, but that kind of set her off on this spiral of depression which has lasted forever. But don’t worry, she does come around in her own mom way.
Me: So the end, wow. What did you think of that?
A: It was a shocker. One none of us was expecting. I still can’t believe that H. L. did such a twist. It’s going to make Snow interesting for sure.
Me: I know you’re busy, so one more question, are you happy to be Abigail Grimm?
A: Thrilled, and I can’t wait till Snow is out for everyone to read! Keep an eye out for it after the start of the new year!
