Interview with Amy Plum about the Revenants Series
Are you a fan of the Revenants Series by Amy Plum? I am and I can't wait for the next book in the series and for Jules short-story!
Amy was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about the series. I hope you enjoy this interview!
1 - Can you describe the Revenants Series to your readers in 10 or less words?
Kate, American in Paris, discovers a world of undead guardians.
2 - What compelled you to write about Revenants?
I didn't think I had anything to add to the traditional supernatural beings, like vampires, werewolves, and the like. So I decided to make up my own monster. What I did was to make a list of all of the supernatural beings I knew of, and then narrowed it down to the only ones I thought I felt interested enough in to be able to write a few books about them. I ended up with "gods" and "zombies", and my revenants are a combination of the two.
3 - Who would you say is the hardest character to write about and why?
I had a hard time writing about Arthur until I decided to make him an author, and then everything came more easily for me. Usually my characters come with their own "suitcases": their histories, personalities, and ways of speaking are already there for me to open up and use. That didn't happen for Arthur...I had to figure him out on my own.
4 - If the Revenants series ever became a movie/tv series who would you like to play your characters?
I would really like to have some French actors play the French characters. For that reason French/German Francois Goeske might make a good Vincent. Gaspard Ulliel or Pierre Boulanger might make a good Jules. For Kate, when Emma Roberts is brunette, I think she'd be perfect for the part.
5 - What can you tell us about the next book in the series - If I Should Die?
The story starts the second UNTIL I DIE leaves off. Kate is at the height of her kick-assness and MOST of the characters will have a resolution to their stories in this book. I like to think of DIE FOR ME as romance, UNTIL I DIE as mystery, and IF I SHOULD DIE as thriller. I hope you like it!
Thank you, Amy!
