Welcome to the Worlds of Wonder blog hop histed by Full Moon Bites. Today saw the release of my YA science fiction novel OBSCURA BURNING so during a week of blog hopping you’ll get to know a lot more about my character and the world in which my story takes place. Happy hopping!
Kyle Wolfe’s world is about to crash and burn. Just weeks away from graduation, a fire kills Kyle’s two best friends and leaves him permanently scarred. A fire that Kyle accidentally set the night he cheated on his boyfriend Danny with their female friend, Shira. That same day, a strange new planet, Obscura, appears in the sky. And suddenly Kyle’s friends aren’t all that dead anymore.
Each time Kyle goes to sleep, he awakens to two different realities. In one, his boyfriend Danny is still alive, but Shira is dead. In the other, it’s Shira who’s alive…and now they’re friends with benefits. Shifting between realities is slowly killing him, and he’s not the only one dying. The world is dying with him. He’s pretty sure Obscura has something to do with it, but with his parents’ marriage imploding and realities shifting each time he closes his eyes, Kyle has problems enough without being the one in charge of saving the world…
Today I’d like to introduce you to Kyle Wolfe, the 18yr old MC of Obscura Burning.
Character Interview with Kyle Wolfe
1. What single thing or goal do you want most in life?
To figure out what the hell is happening to me. And then, I want to make things right, to go back in time to before the fire and make sure I never play with matches.
2. What do you fear most?
That the world will end because of me, that it’ll be my fault that everyone’s dead.
3. Are you presently in love, or do you hope to find someone special?
*Snicker* You’re kidding right? I’m 18, what the hell do I know about love? I thought I knew, thought I loved Danny but now I’m not so sure. Don’t think I deserve finding someone special, not after what I did.
4. Sum up your life in the last few weeks in 150 words or less.
Can I use four letter words? No? Horrific, confusing, devastating, frustrating, unbelievable, terrifying – Do you really need another 144 words?
5. If you could change one thing of your past would you? If so, what would it be and why?
I’d change how I treated Danny. Maybe if I’d just been honest with him from the start none of this would have happened and the world wouldn’t be about to end.
6. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
That’s easy, a wolf – just like my name. Why? Because wolves do just fine all by themselves. They’re badass and not afraid of anything – I wish I could be like that.
