As part of the Worlds of Wonder author hop taking place for a whole week, my post today is a character interview with Mya from Obscura Burning.
The world’s going to end in fire…and it’s all Kyle’s fault.
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 Mya Gonzales, Kyle’s best friend in one reality – his nemesis in another...
Character Interview with Mya Gonzales
1. What single thing or goal do you want most in life?
I want to get out of this s**thole town away from all these cabróns and do something extraordinary with my life. Maybe go to college, doesn’t really matter as long as I’m anywhere but stuck in Coyote’s Luck, NM.
2. What do you fear most?
I’m afraid of so many things although I don’t really let it show. Maybe what I fear most is not living life to the fullest, not going for things because I’m afraid – it’s a vicious circle.
3. Are you presently in love, or do you hope to find someone special?
Sort of, a crush maybe, except he doesn’t really see it. He’s too busy figuring out what’s going on in his life. And I’m not really his type.
4. Sum up your life in the last few weeks in 150 words or less.
Amazing because I met this guy who has like a suerpower switching between realities but it’s also been crazy weird and terrifying for exactly the same reasons.
5. If you could change one thing of your past would you? If so, what would it be and why?
That day at Briar’s with Benny. My brother was a real pendejo but he didn’t deserve that.
6. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
An otter because they’re cute and fierce at the same time, like me.
