Here is an interview with the MC from my book. Hope this goes well. ---------
Charlie: I am here today with Holly Price, main character of Shutter Click. Hello, Holly! How are things today?
Holly: Not too bad, considering how much death I looked at today.
Charlie: I'm sorry to hear that, is it difficult for you to handle seeing dead bodies?
Holly: NO! I just wanted to finish my breakfast today before I got yet another phone call about another girl who was killed.
(Holly fidgets with her dark ringlets, wrapping and unwrapping them around her finger.)
Charlie: Well what made you want to get into the forensics business?
Holly: When I was 15 my father got me a camera for my birthday. It sort of started my interest in photographing things. Everything. I found I especially enjoyed taking photos of people doing everyday things; playing with a puppy, taking out the garbage, brushing their hair.
(Holly seemed anxious talking about the past, and her leg starts tapping furiously.)
Charlie: Why do you put such a negative emphasis on 'father'?
(Holly's eye seemed to twitch with rage.)
Holly: I refuse to talk about him, except for that I've come to terms with his never being around, but I don't want him around now. Pick something else to talk about now.
Charlie: No problem, I apologize for bringing up a sensitive subject. Next question then: how does photographing murdered people affect your personal life?
(Holly glares at me, flips me off, and walks out of the room.)
Charlie: I guess that was too hard of a question for her. I guess we'll have to...Oh wait, she's coming back!
(Holly comes in apologetically and takes her seat.)
Holly: I'm so very sorry Miss. I didn't mean to be so rude. I am just sensitive about my work, as it has affected my personal life so wholly.
Charlie: Not a problem at all, no judgement here Holly. If you don't mind then, how has it affected you?
Holly: I have one friend, no love life, and I frequently eat alone at cafes. It's rather pathetic, I think.
Charlie: You are pretty busy with your work though, that is usually cause for having a nil social life.
Holly: Mine is more an anti-social life. There just isn't one, and I avoid it at all costs. It's so much easier, and yes, I am exhausted from phone calls at 2 am, late nights, nightmares; it's a desperate sort of life.
(Holly rubs her forehead, releasing some tension.)
Charlie: Well I'm very sorry to hear about all of your tribulations Miss Holly, it seems like a life not chosen.
Holly: It's not. I couldn't be doing anything else and even be remotely happy. It is thrilling trying to catch a killer, regardless of what it does to your life.
Charlie: I can literally only imagine what that's like, the frustration and desperation of not finding the perpetrator, followed by celebration and elation at the end.
Holly: Sorry Miss, you're a bit off. Yes, it's frustrating, it's full of desperation. But there isn't really a celebration or bouts of elation when we catch someone. Because when we catch someone, that means they still killed a person, now they are just going to pay for it.
Charlie: You're right on that one. Thank you for doing what you do, and I'm sorry to hear your life isn't going so well. Anything I can do?
(Holly seems to switch back to the angry mode she was in at the beginning; her eyes turning an deep onyx.)
Holly: How dare you even think your insignificance could EVER make a difference in our life! We like things just the way they are, and Holly here can't do anything to change that, and neither can you.
(Holly pulls out a long, sharp blade and threatens my throat with it.)
Charlie: STOP! STOP! Security!!!!!
(Holly is carted away by nervous looking police officers.)
Charlie: Sheesh! What in the hell?? At least she didn't get close enough to me. How's my hair? Still okay? Good, lets get prepped for the next interview.
