Hey, it’s Mischa. I’m here today with Merlin Kraft from Live and Let Bite.
[Mischa] Who or what are you? What are your vitals? (age, sex, species)
[Merle] My name is Merle Kraft. I am … human ish. It’s a long story.
[Mischa] What part do you play in the story?
[Merle] I’m the magic against the magic. Again, sort of.
[Mischa] How would you describe your book?
[Merle] One part romance, one part war.
[Mischa] Tell me about where you live? Who do you live with?
[Merle] I live in San Francisco, occasionally with my son.
[Mischa] What’s the most important thing in your life right now?
[Merle] Doing my job and getting out alive, really.
[Mischa] What do you hope nobody ever finds out about you?
[Merle] That I actually carry a gun. If they find out, they may wonder why I never use it – because I can’t shoot.
[Mischa] What do you like or dislike about the other characters from your book?
[Merle] I dislike the ones that are clueless. Seriously, when a vampire is trying to kill you, don’t worry about whether or not “guns are icky.”
[Mischa] In your opinion, what is your best feature?
[Merle] My ability to disappear.
[Mischa] What’s the worst thing someone ever did to you?
[Merle] …. My wife divorced me. Then again, she didn’t annul the marriage, so I’m hopeful.
[Mischa] What’s the worst thing you’ve done to someone?
[Merle] That’s classified. And you don’t want the nightmares, do you?
[Mischa] Read any good books? What were they?
[Merle] The latest biography of Tesla. Also, Set to Kill, by this Finn character. He’s strange.
[Mischa] What type of places do you hang out in?
[Merle] My business, and wherever I’m assigned to go.
[Mischa] What annoys you more than anything else?
[Merle] The clueless.
[Mischa] What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
[Merle] My wife … um, my ex-wife.
[Mischa] What time of day is your favorite?
[Merle] Dawn. That means I can relax.
[Mischa] What kind of weather is your favorite?
[Merle] A bright sunshiny day. Which I never get in San Francisco, so …
[Mischa] Do you have any pets? Do you want any pets? What kind?
[Merle] The only pets I have are the college students who hang out in my store.
[Mischa] Do you have any magical items? Where did you get them?
[Merle] I am the magical item.
[Mischa] If you could change anything in your book, what would it be and why?
[Merle] I’d like it to be the last one. It would make my life easier.
[Mischa] Who would play you in the movie?
[Merle] A younger Jet Li with contact lenses.
