Character Interview: Widow Larkin #IWSGanthology #OfWordsandSwords #HeroLost

Please welcome Widow Larkin for a character interview. Widow Larkin is from "Of Words and Swords" in the Hero Lost: Myteries of Death and Life anthology.

Tyrean: Widow Larkin, why don’t you tell us about how Maud came to live in your attic?

Widow Larkin: I take in lost strays and he seemed lost.

Tyrean: I thought he had –

Widow Larkin: He thought a dark attic would help him in his endeavors. I had such an attic.

Tyrean: Do you think it helped?

Widow Larkin shrugs: I can’t say, really. I’m not into that sort of thing.

Tyrean: Really? I thought in your profession words would be of use.

Widow Larkin: There are words and there are words. Some are useful for one profession and not another.

Tyrean: I see. So, you’re saying that specialized language helps in what you do?

Widow Larkin: Some. I’m more musical in my craft.

Tyrean: I thought that Maud was –

Widow Larkin: He had hopes, but we should not speak of that now.

Tyrean: So, what can we talk about?

Widow Larkin: There really isn’t much, unless you want me to give something away.

Tyrean: Something about you and not Maud?

Widow Larkin: All will be revealed in time.

Widow Larkin starts humming a sweet melody and walks out of the room to the sea.

Okay then. I guess I should let readers know that you can find out more about the secretive Widow Larkin in “Of Words and Swords” from Dancing Lemur press in the Hero Lost: Mysteries of Death and Life anthology.

Last Friday, Ellen Jacobson hosted Renee and I for an interview about cookies and adventures. :) The Hero Lost Anthology authors are going strong!

I can relate to Widow Larkin. I'm one too and took in a stray as well-my daughter's boyfriend. But I don't have an attic. Loved the little intro to her.

I haven't gotten to Widow Larkin's tale in the anthology yet, but now I might have to skip ahead!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I have two beta projects and then I hope I have time to read the anthology. My husband is reading it and enjoying it.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Natalie - Thanks! :)

C.Lee - she's the "secondary" main character, but I think she's interesting.

Elzabeth - I'm glad your husband is enjoying it! You are so busy, lady, I'm kind of awed at the moment.

Nick Wilford said...

All very mysterious! Hope to get to reading the anthology soon!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I imagine she does the music and words better than Maud.

M.J. Fifield said...

Love that image you found on Pinterest.

Really looking forward to reading this anthology. I hope to start it soon!

Erika Beebe said...

I love the mystery! The whistling part sounds like something I would

CWMartin said...

Now THAT's a cool way to build up interest!

Widow Larkin is a cool name! I love all these interviews! ^_^

Arlee Bird said...

I'm not sure why, but I've always liked the surname "Larkin". When I was in high school I wrote a story where the main character's last name was Larkin. "Widow Larkin" sounds cool.

Great job!!! It can't be easy interviewing your character. I don't think I've even tried it before!

Crystal Collier said...

Secretive characters are fun. =) I have a few of those. They're such a pain in a public forum, eh?

Julie Flanders said...

I love character interviews and this was a great one. She is fascinating and I'm so intrigued. Looking forward to reading your tale!!
Also love the pic - goes so perfectly with your interview. :)
