Hey, it’s Mischa. Aadi and I caught up with the female lead of Honor At Stake by Declan Finn and asked her a few questions.
[Aadi] Who or what are you? What are your vitals? (age, sex, species)
[Amanda] Amanda Colt. Age is none of your business. No sex, please.

[Aadi] How would you describe your book?
[Amanda] A thriller.
[Aadi] Tell me about where you live? Who do you live with?

[Aadi] What’s the most important thing in your life right now?
[Amanda] Keeping my secret.
[Mischa] What do you hope nobody ever finds out about you?

[Aadi] It was a pleasure chatting with you, Amanda. I’ve heard rumor that we’ll be reading about you in future novels. Can we chat again when they come out?
[Amanda] Not a problem.
