I'm very excited to have Zilla here today to talk to us about D.A. Henneman's series, The Power of Four - www.saraybooksllc.com
1. What was your first impression of your writer?
My first impression was that D.A. has a zest for life and dearly loves to laugh. It may have been the amount of alcohol being consumed at the time, but who am I to say? I’m just glad she was having a good time, since that was the time and place I was brought to life. On that level, I suppose, is where we connect.
2. How did you and the hero/heroine meet?
I wasn’t formally introduced to the element of water, Brooke Fisher, until I had already met the element of Air, Amie. I suppose the fact that my boyfriend was haunting Brooke’s dreams and trying to steal her powers had something to do with it. She came into her power with my sister’s help, and it was then that I turned my attention to the element of air. She liked me well enough until her boyfriend came into the picture, which was when all hell broke loose.
3. What is your greatest strength? Greatest weakness? How have they shaped your life?
My greatest strength is my knowledge of old magick and my connection to the powers of the universe. It is my birthright, and at times it is my curse. I‘d have to say my greatest weakness is my love for Erebos, which by the way my darlings you can never mention to him! I would literally do anything for that man, but he can never know! My life has been shaped by the conflict I have between using my power for balance, and doing things for Erebos that I know will cause chaos.
4. What first drew you to your hero/heroine?
Well darling, that is a complicated question. While Erebos has an agenda that I have been helping him with, I’m also obligated to help my sister Sevilla who’s made it her personal mission to ensure that the elements find their powers. Ultimately, balance is what draws us all together. Or the lack thereof.
5. If you could be in any profession, what would you do and why?
I should very much like to be a psychic, I dabble with tarot from time to time and have gotten pretty good at it, if I do say so myself. That occupation would not only suit my personality, but it would allow me to wear all the colorful clothing that I dearly love. I have a new purple corset just for the occassion!
6. So, in your story, what was the most memorable moment for you?
So far, I would have to say it was my fabulous fight with the stone gargoyles. I really wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off morphing into a griffin, but I ended up managing quite well under pressure.
7. What do you do for fun?
I love to chase mice, they are such fast little creatures! Sometimes I even chase them without changing into a cat first, just to up the stakes.
8. Would you like for your writer to create a sequel for you? Why or why not?
Once the story of the elements is complete, I would love for my writer to tell the story that my sisters and I have had to keep secret for all of these years. If people only knew what we have been through, they might be a little nicer to us.
9. What do you do for a living?
10. What is your greatest fear?
Not being attractive to my love anymore and him leaving me for another witch. Also, I’m not overly fond of dogs.
11. What do you wear when you go to sleep?
You're supposed to wear something?
12. What is your most prized possession?
I have an amethyst pentacle that my sister gave me long ago that has has been invaluable for me when figuring out which path I should take. It has never led me astray.
13. What do you think your greatest weakness is?
Erebos is, and always has been, my greatest weakness.
14. What do you think is your strongest attribute?
15. What are you proudest of?
Of that fact that I was able to keep a secret. Even though it upset some, it saved lives. Oh, and the fact that I have finally come up with the proper combination of spells to rid my yard of fairies. I am going to make a killing selling this stuff!
16. What is most attractive to you about the opposite sex?
If I have to narrow it down, I suppose I am very much into eyes, particularly blue ones. Although tight buns in black leather pants do it for me as well!
17. What trait or characteristic do you most dislike about the opposite sex?
Lack of empathy.
18. What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy afternoon?
I love to curl on the hearth and warm myself by the fire. I really like it when Sevilla scratches the fur behind my ears, although she doesn’t do that nearly as often as she used to. In human form I like to drink wine with Sevilla, she way less uptight when she drinks, and usually much more apt to talk about the good times.
19. What’s your favorite animal?
Well a cat of course! Honestly, anything considered to be part of the feline family.
20. Have you ever thought about getting a tattoo, what would it be and where?
I have thought about it, but would only do it if my other sisters did one to match. I often thought it would be fun to have a sigil representing harmony tattooed on the back of our necks. It is something that we have never had in our lives, but all strive for in our own way.
