Q: You are a matchmaker — your goal, hook up two characters from two of your favorite books. Who would it be? How do you think it would go?
I'd have Eponine from Les Miserables meet enigmatic vampire Saint Germain. He'd soon make her forget all about soppy old Marius and she could then survive stray bullets, travel the world and be less wretched.
What upcoming releases are you most looking forward to?
There are some great books still due out this year, but I think the two I am most excited about are: Shadow of the Night by Deborah Harkness (out in July) and the final part of the Vampire Empire trilogy (out in September).
