Janiera Eldridge - Soul Sisters - Author Interview

Author Interview

1. Who is the plot based around?
The first book is based more around Dana who is the human sister.

2. What is the main idea of the plot?
The main idea of the plot is that twin sisters Ani and Dana (Ani is a vampire and Dana is not) are trying to find away to save themselves from execution. Ani has made a very public display of her vampirism and their leader Donovan wants to get rid of the both of them. Neither one is going down without a fight.

3. When does the plot take place?
Soul Sisters take place between past time periods and the present. The book flocculates between the past and the future to give a well rounded background of some of the main characters.

4. Where does the plot take place?
The book features many different locations Switzerland, San Diego, Harlem New York. There are some really great locations all though out.

5. Why did the plot develop the way it did?
I really believe I started off with a plot idea in my head but as I wrote the plot and characters took over and wrote themselves. Sometimes I got writer’s block but other times it was smooth sailing. I just let the characters talk to me and the events unfolded on their own.

6. How did you come up with the idea for the plot?
I was watching something about how close twins are and even if they grow up apart they still lead similar lives. The idea just came to me: what if you had twin sisters and one is vampire while the other is a human. What kind of trouble would they get into? The answer is…. a lot!
