For those who aren't aware, where did you get the idea for Remembrance?
|Michelle Madow, author of Remembrance|
I loved the names of the characters, they fit them perfectly. How did you come up with the names?
Thank you! Lizzie relates to Lizzy from Pride and Prejudice, and Drew came from the Taylor Swift song “Teardrops on my Guitar.” I also needed the names to be British (Elizabeth and Andrew), and shorten into modern day nicknames (Lizzie and Drew). For most of my other characters, I imagine them in my head and go with the name that feels right for who they are. I find last names to be harder than first names though, because they have to match the character’s ethnic origins and sound right with the first name.
If Remembrance were made into a movie, who would you want to play Drew and Lizzie?
I LOVE casting celebrities as characters in my book! I picture Lizzie as Taylor Swift, and Drew as Drew Roy. I even have a whole blog entry devoted to this subject, which you can check it out by clicking here.
What is a book from your childhood that you can't wait to read to your children?
My favorite childhood book series is definitely the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis.
What was the last book you read and loved?
Tempest by Julie Cross. You can check out my five star review here on my blog.
