Oh, how I loved this story! How did you choose Anders and Natalie for this novella?

Thank you so much!

Anders Sorenson has been quiet and mysterious throughout the Endgame trilogy and Masterpiece Duet, but he’s never had his own book.

There was always a hole in the series. The Pawn, The Knight, The Castle, The King, The Queen. Even my son who’s eleven has asked me why I don’t have a book for The Bishop. So when 1,001 Dark Nights asked me to join the family, I knew this was his moment.

He is a doctor, a healer, but he holds deadly secrets.

If you could dream cast both Natalie and Anders for a movie, who would you choose?

It would have to be someone blonde as a male actor—someone lean and strong and impenetrable. I have to say I favor Jude Law as a blonde.

He would smile less than Dumbledore, though.

As for Natalie, she’s determined and brave even facing impossible odds. I’m enamored of Anya Chalotra who pays Yennefer on The Witcher.

If you could give The Bishop a theme song, what would it be?

I know a lot of authors have a set way they like to write…certain snacks, a certain playlist, or a special writing spot. Can you tell us a little about how you write?

I have a favorite coffee shop that I take myself to every morning when I’m on deadline where I enjoy a seat in the dimly lit back of the shop and milk tea, but most of my words happen in the dead of night, when my family has gone to sleep and I’m sitting on the bare floor.

Can you give us a hint as to what you’re working on now?

I have a few different stories whispering in my mind. I’m letting them fight it out in a moment of artistic indecision. There’s one about a soldier saving a young woman from captivity overseas. There’s a dark and sexual billionaire fake-fiance story. And a modern Jane Eyre retelling. What do you think? Hit the reply button and let me know!
