I love it when a character has the time to stop by and chat for a bit, especially when it’s a fave character from a fave series. I’ve enjoyed watching Alexis come into her own in Kristie Cook’s Soul Saver series, so I’m super excited that Alexis stopped by on the Soul Savers tour to talk a bit about trust and betrayal.
LL: You have a hard time trusting people. Why is that? What betrayals have you experienced in the past?
Alexis: Heh. Let me count the ways. First there was the guy who had been the closest thing I’d ever had to a father. He abandoned me. At least, for a five-year-old, that’s how it had felt at the time. Then there were the girls who had supposedly been my friends in the fourth grade…then others in the fifth grade…and more at another school in the sixth grade…and seventh…you get the picture. They were all the same. Pretended to be my friends until they had something to use against me, which isn’t hard to find, and stabbed me in the back. Made me the joke of the school every single time. Why are girls so mean to each other? Ugh. Then there were the guys throughout junior high and high school. I thought James was different when I met him, but he turned out to be a Grade A asshat, too. That was about the time I just said “screw you” to the rest of the world and solidified my role as loner. My only friends ever, until I met Tristan, were fictional characters in the books I read and the stories I wrote. They never turned on me. So, yeah, I’m pretty used to betrayal. Thank God Tristan is so patient with me. The poor guy’s suffered the brunt of my heartbreaks.
LL: Yups, Tristan is an amazing guy. Just…..amazing. *Pauses and stares off into the distance* Um, what was I saying? Anyway, I want to thank Alexis for popping in I know how busy she is. And if I had Tristan? Well, I’d probably never leave the house.
