[INTERVIEW] Andrea Cremer

Andrea Cremer’s debut novel, Nightshade, will be released in October (US/Canada/Australia), with Wolfsbane to come in July 2011, and Bloodrose in 2012. Here’s a few spoiler-free questions I asked her. Enjoy!

Is Lake Superior really superior to other lakes, or is it just up itself? 😉
Obviously I’m biased, but yes, absolutely. It is gorgeous, the largest of the lakes and the most pristine.

Nightshade is set near Vail, but there’s no mention of Colorado in your bio. Did you live there at some stage, or was it just the right location for the world you built?
I’ve visited Colorado, but never lived there. The Keepers reside in places that are luxurious but also somewhat remote; Vail offered the ideal combination of characteristics.

You may be Professor Chaos, but you’re also a history professor. My favourite historical tropes are laudanum, asylums, and the Romanovs. Any chance of you writing about any of these in the near future?
Interesting. I don’t know about laudanum, but I definitely could see asylums and the Romanovs working into future projects!

While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack’s world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches’ War that surrounds them all…

  1. Nightshade sounds good, especially the first line of the blurb.
