The One with Bree Despain
So! Today I was lucky enough to be able to go to BEA (I was volunteering for work). In addition to meeting a ton of wonderful bloggers and coming home with 21(!) books, I was lucky enough to meet this lovely lady:
About Bree Bree rediscovered her childhood love for creating stories when she took a semester off college to write and direct plays for at-risk, inner-city teens from Philadelphia and New York. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, two young sons, and her beloved TiVo. The Dark Divine is Bree's debut novel.
About The Dark Divine
A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret . . .
I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. . . . I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me . . . I mean . . . why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?” Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared—the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in blood. But she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night really held. And when Daniel returns three years later, Grace can no longer deny her attraction to him, despite promising Jude she’ll stay away.
As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel's dark secret . . . and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it—her soul.
What did you want to grow up to be when you were ten years old?
I wanted to be an artist. My family is full of wonderful visual artists so I wanted to follow in their footsteps. Luckily, I realized I was better at writing than painting.
If you were lost in space, who are the three people you'd want with you?
Well, normally I’d say my hubby and my two little boys because I wouldn’t want to be lost without them . . . but for the sake of being whimsical I’ll say Captain Kirk and Spock (both from the new STAR TREK movie) because they know all about space, and Tim Riggins because . . . um, why not?
What was the last movie you saw that you hated? How would you rewrite it or change it?
Oh boy, the other day I was working on revisions of THE LOST SAINT when my hubby turned on the movie MISSION TO MARS. After about 30 seconds I found myself completely unable to get any work done because the movie was so bad. It was the strangest mix of a space adventure and absurdist filmmaking. I think I’d just scrap the whole thing rather than try to change anything.
