Until I Die Blog Tour Stop: Character Interview with Kate

Kate is stopping by the blog today to answer a few yearning questions for us. 

  • What do you enjoy most about Paris?
Walking through Paris is like being on a treasure hunt. You’ll be wandering through a charming little neighborhood, passing caf├ęs and shops, and then all of a sudden be standing in the middle of the ruins of a Roman arena. Or turn a corner off of a shopping street and be facing a medieval church tower standing there by itself—the church has long since crumbled.

And then there’s the mix of cultures everywhere: a 6’ stick-figure fashion model handing a coin to a tiny beggar woman; French businessmen sitting next to punk-rock Japanese tourists; haute-couture grannies sashaying in their 4-inch heels past a group of laughing teenagers in jeans and Converse.
When I walk through Paris I am always in a state of amazement and wonder.

  • What is the one thing that Vincent does that you can't resist?
There’s this look that he gives me – it’s this kind of sideways glance followed by a proud-looking smile. It’s like he’s reminding himself of who he’s with and then looking really pleased about it. When he does it, I can’t help throwing my arms around his neck and smothering his face with kisses.

  • Favorite fictional bad boy or crush (since not all of us girls like the bad boys)?
Since everyone always says “Mr. Darcy,” I’ll choose a character he inspired: Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones’s Diary. I totally fell for him in both book and movie.

  • What is the one thing you wish you could do better?
Swordfight. I hate it that EVERY SINGLE PERSON I hang out with (except my sister) fights so much better than I do. Of course, they’ve all had decades of experience, and I’ve just been training with Gaspard for a few weeks. But my goal is to be able to beat Vincent at a swordfight. Just once.

  • Most embarrassing moment?
I’ve had so many embarrassing moments that it takes a lot to embarrass me now. Okay – here’s one. I’m pretty messy. My clothes are kind of all over the place. Well the other day, I left Mamie and Papy’s apartment carrying my backpack-style laptop bag, which has a Velcro closing on the bottom of it. I walked 5 Paris blocks wondering why people were cracking up as they walked past me until finally I looked behind me and noticed I had a pair of panties hanging from the bottom of my backpack. 5 blocks. Pink. Yep, very embarrassing.

  • Why was choosing love so important - from the sound of it, you are missing out on a lot by choosing Vincent?
For me, it was a choice between living a grief-free life without the love that Vincent brought me OR loving Vincent and having to deal with his constant deaths. I chose to live without love. After my own parents’ deaths, I didn’t think I could cope with another person I loved dying again and again – even if he is resurrected each time. But Vincent promised me that he will control the urge revenants have to die and refrain from death during my lifetime. I have promised to give “us” another try. We’ll see what happens.

    I'm most excited to see the power struggle within Vincent, in order to be with Kate. Both are giving up so much to be together, but more so Vincent than Kate. It'll be interesting to see how Until I Die segues into If I Should Die.
    Thanks for the post and being part of the tour!

  16. Wow! I am excited for SO MANY different things in Until I Die. I want to see the developments in each character's personality and learn more about them, I want to feel and sense the action that Amy is bound to write about, the fights between the revenants and numa, I want to see how Georgia reacts to everything--will she freak out once things get too..well, crazy?
    But most of all, (being the hopeless romantic that I am) i want to see Vincent and Kate's relationship deepen and the struggle within Vincent as he fights his urge to die for others.
    Let's just say I'm REALLY excited for Until I Die, lol. <3
