Hello Everyone! A happy Saturday to you.
Today I have a special little surprise for y’all. A special guest, the main character from my novella, will be joining us for a special interview. Without further ado, I present to you Siobhan Calvert.
Me: Hey, Siobhan. Welcome to the website.
Siobhan: Thanks. This is kind of new for me.
Me: Don’t worry. It’s pretty new for me too. So, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself.
Siobhan: Um…I’m not quite sure. What do you want to know?
Me: All right. Let’s start with something simple. Where do you live?
Siobhan: Oh, that’s easy. I live on the Netus-3 station with my mother. It’s one of the biggest trade stations in the galaxy.
Me: Do you like it there?
Siobhan: Of course, I do. I’ve lived there all my life.
Me: You mentioned your mother, but what about your dad? Is he still around?
Siobhan: Oh yeah. He’s definitely around. He works on a trade ship and he’s gone a lot. But it’s really nice when he comes back home.
Me: I guess you don’t have any siblings then. You didn’t mention any at least.
Siobhan: Oh, yeah, no siblings. It’s okay though. I don’t know if I’d survive.
Me: Okay. Oh yeah, I forgot to ask how old you are.
Siobhan: Um…isn’t that supposed to be rude?
Me: Usually, but I’m your author so I can get away with it.
Siobhan: Okaaaaay. I’m nineteen.
Me: Well, here on Earth, at least in the United States, that’s typically past the age of high school. So, what do you do?
Siobhan: I have no idea what the United States is, but I do know Earth. I’ve heard stories at least. Oh, uh, back to your question. Yes, I am out of school. I actually work with my mom at the local engine shop. It is the best engine shop anywhere! Ships come from all over the galaxy to get maintenance and repairs there.
Me: You sound very proud of it. Do you work on any actual engine?
Siobhan: No. I’m actually not allowed to. Mostly I just do forms and stuff like that. My mom is the best though. Like, she knows more things than anyone else there. She’s actually the one that taught me how to do what I do.
Me: What do you do for fun?
Siobhan: Well, we have some awesome gardens on the station that I love reading in them. The small streams there are just fun to watch and listen to. Other than that, the Zero-G rooms are too much fun!
Me: Zero-G room? What’s that?
Siobhan: Ooh! They are these giant rooms that don’t have any gravity, hence the name Zero-G. I’m actually really good at it. Which…is surprising.
Me: Oh? How come?
Siobhan: Well…I have a habit of running into things a lot.
Me: Ah, I see. Sounds painful. Anything else you’d like to add?
Siobhan: Um, not really. My life isn’t that interesting.
Me: Well, I wouldn’t say that exactly. After all I did right a book about your life.
Siobhan: You have me kidnapped! Of course, it gets interesting!
Me: Shh! Don’t spoil the story. No one will want to read it if you just spoil it like that.
Siobhan: All right, fine. But I still blame you.
Me: Don’t worry, I will completely accept the blame for that. Well, I guess that’s the end of the interview. If I have any more questions, I’ll be sure to bring you back for some more.
Siobhan: All right. This was actually kind of fun. Maybe I can bring my mom next time. I know she’d love that.
Me: By all means of course, until then try to stay safe.
Well, folks, that was my very special guest coming to say “Hi.” I really do like her. There’s more to her than meets the eye for sure.
