Guest post by L.G. Keltner
I’d like to thank Patricia Lynne for letting me stop by today! Here I am on the final day of my blog tour! It’s hard to believe it’s over already!
Today I have a character interview for you. I’m not the one doing the interview, though. Instead I’d like to share a college interview with you. It’ll help you get an idea of the kind of world this character lives in.
Excerpt from Interview Transcript
Subject: Lassandra Rouke
Date: March 2, 2071
Interview conducted by Agent Timothy Brinks
Hello. I’m Agent Brinks and I’ll be asking you few questions today. Is that all right?
Yes, of course.
Just for the record, can you confirm for me that your name is Lassandra Rourke?
Yes, I can.
According to our aptitude tests, your strongest academic area is mathematics. Your high school grades support this conclusion. The purpose of this interview is to assess your personality and determine which math-related career you are best suited for. Do you understand?
Good. What would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment to date, and why?
Um, I think getting to the point where I’m talking to you today should count, but I doubt that’s what you’re looking for. I guess that the time our high school debate team won nationals was a great accomplishment. We had to put in a lot of hours, but it was worth it. My debate coach once told me that I have a natural gift when it comes to persuading people.
Do you think that’s an accurate statement?
It’s a flattering one. I think I have a lot left to learn, but I know I can do it. I know how to work hard, and I never quit.
With your strength in math and your strong background in debate, I think you might fit in well in the world of finance. How would you feel about that?
That sounds interesting. If that’s the assignment you give me, I’ll do everything I can to be successful. You can count on that.
TIPPIE was created to be a weapon. By all appearances, she's an ordinary girl of 18, and she uses that to her advantage in her work for The Facility. What no one sees is that there's another girl buried deep inside. She can't speak or control the movements of the body she inhabits. As TIPPIE's silent passenger, she can only observe. She uses the details she learns from TIPPIE's work to reconstruct the stories of other people's lives. It helps her feel a little more connected to the world she can only watch.
When TIPPIE's work leads her to David, a young man with a haunted past and information that The Facility wants, TIPPIE uses her skills to earn his trust. The silent girl beneath the surface knows that TIPPIE is only going to hurt him, but she can't help but feel for him. Those feelings only grow, but she knows all too well that TIPPIE's work will soon come to an end.
