Birthday: April 12 ^_-
First Poppy Book: Lost Souls
Fav Poppy Book: Drawing Blood or Lost Souls. Liquor series is pretty sweet too…
Fav Character: Ghost or Trevor
I was cleaning out my aunts garage with her and she found a short story book with one of Poppy’s shorts in it. I don’t remember which one but she thought I would like it, I like obscure writers like Chuck Palahniuk, and I read it a few minutes later, loved it and that afternoon I went and got ‘Lost Souls’!
Compare Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite:
I used to read Rice when I was younger but now her books lack something to me. I found what I wanted in Brite.
What character reminds you of yourself the most:
Probably Trevor at the start of ‘Drawing Blood’. I don’t trust people a lot of the time, or I trust people I don’t know well. I draw constantly and I times I think my sketch pad knows me better then anyone. Or Nothing. I don’t fit in, don’t really want to. I have maybe five friends and only two really, really close ones.
If you could ask her any question, what would it be:
I would prolly just stand there in awe. I’m rather shy.
Do you look like Poppy Z Brite:
No.. not that last time I looked.
Has anything in your life mirrored an event in a book or story:
Not so much and event but I’m really close with a friend of mind and at times I like her more then just friends and I thought for a while she liked me too but she didn’t. So.. Slightly like Steve and Ghost. Me being Ghost.
Do you know anyone like a character from a book or story:
One of my friends is a lot like Eddy. Pines over one person instead of looking for someone else who will think of them in the same way. My best male friend is like Steve, he’s really protective of me and can be an ass but at the end of the day I still love him.
Do you wish anything in a book or story would happen to you or anyone else:
I would love to walk into my bathroom and have the sink start bleeding! Hah, umm no not that one but maybe Trevor and Zack’s relationship. I would love to but that much trust into one person and have it work right.
What would you like to see from Poppy in the future:
Just keep writing some of the best books I’ve ever read.
