What did you learn about yourself while inking Dark Days?
Carol: I learned that I’m not as good at juggling so many things at once.
Adam: It was while writing Dark Days that I realized I can write a pretty kick butt action sequence (in my opinion of course, though I have received that compliment from many readers hahaha!)
What fears were you facing with the release of The Modified?
Carol: I had no fears, I so love the story.
Adam: That no one would like Kenley Grayson, our main character. The book is told through her eyes, and I was afraid readers wouldn’t connect with her. Also, I was worried that the technology would go over reader’s heads, but thankfully both of these fears were squashed when I began reading reviews.
What are you most ambivalent about when you sit down to write?
Carol: Whether Adam will like the chapters I write. We start with a complete outline and he takes two chapters and then I take the next two, until we’re finished.
Adam: Whether Mom will like the chapters I write.
What do you want your readers to walk away with after reading your books?
Carol & Adam: We want them to walk away fully entertained by our stories. We love writing easy reads that you can just immerse yourself in for a short while, and just have fun reading. We also hope that our readers might see themselves in at least one of our characters (main or secondary) so that there may be a possible deeper connection to the material.
If you were able to go on a haunted hayride with whomever you want (past or present), who do you pick and what are you talking about?
Carol: Stephen King and we would discuss his awesome imagination.
Adam: R.L. Stine and we wouldn’t be talking about anything. Actually, I’d want him to narrate the entire haunted hayride, hahaha! I’ve met him in person and he’s quite the dry humored, sarcastic, and awesome fellow.
Thank you so very much, Adam. Thank you so much, Carol.
Carol & Adam: It was our pleasure, and we’re so happy you asked us to participate in this wonderful interview. Your questions were so much fun to answer!
