Character Interview with Norah from Angela Parkhurst's The Forgotten Fairytales

Hello, faithful blog readers! Today, we have with us Angela Parkhurst, author of The Forgotten Fairytales. The MC, Norah, has agreed to an interview.

Welcome, Norah! What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Greatest achievement, oh god. For being seventeen, I’d say living through last year. With all the crap with my sister and crazy Danielle, I made it through, because I refused to be taken down.

I know all about sisters. And brothers. Two sisters, three brothers. What's your idea of perfect happiness? 

I’ll let you know when I find it. ;)

Ah, smart girl! What is your current state of mind? 


Nice. When and where were you the happiest? 

Probably when Dad, April and I were in Paris. It was gorgeous. We raced around the Eiffle Tower, visited museums, and tasted fun foods. It was a blast, plus, April and I actually got along.

And now to flip the coin. What is your greatest fear? 

Losing the ones I love most.

Mine too! Which living person do you most despise? 

Danielle, for sure. Whoever said Cinderella was awesome obviously never met her.

Ha! *coughs* What is your greatest regret? 

Not having a stronger relationship with my sister. If I could, I’d go back and do it all over again. Figure out where we went wrong and fix it.

Aw! Which talent would you most like to have? 

Can a talent be a super hero trait? Because flying would be pretty awesome. Oh, or invisibility. Hasrry Potter was onto something!

Sweet, a girl after my own heart! Where would you like to live? 

Everywhere and anywhere.

What is the quality you most like in a man? 

Independent, strong, fearless. And hot. Definitely hot. Someone who lets me be me, even when I have crazy conspiracy theories.  Oh, and a guy who isn’t intimidated by my awesome sword fighting skills. I totally should’ve been a pirate.

Nice! ;) What do you most value in your friends? 

Trust and honesty.

Gotta have trust and honesty. Who is your favorite hero of fiction? 

The Big Bad Wolf ;)

Why am I not surprised? Which living person do you most admire? 

I admire my dad. He’s been through a lot and being a single father of two girls is no easy job. We’ve had our ups and downs but no matter what, he is my father and I’d do just about anything for him.

That's so sweet. But I'm sure you have a darker side. On what occasions do you lie? 

Sometimes lies are nessary to protect the ones you love. I’ve been on the receiving end of those lies and dished ‘em out.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

How would you like to die? I

f I’m going to down, it won’t be without a fight. So I’d like something epic and mind-blowing. Something to really leave my mark.

If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be? 

I’m torn between something totally fierce like a panther

Very cool. What is your motto? 

Stories are meant to be rewritten. Your fate is not carved in stone, so never give up.

And that's it for our interview. Thanks, Angela, for letting us borrow, Norah. Norah, you were great!

Now, let's learn more about Norah's story.

A psychotic, shoe obsessed Princess.
A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.
A hot Big Bad Wolf she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses.

If seventeen-year-old, Norah Hart had known she’d be attending a boarding school for the nut job reincarnations of fairy tale characters, she would have insisted on going to Moscow with her father. But getting out isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially once Norah realizes she, too, is a storybook character. An Unknown. The first one in one hundred years.

Soon Norah learns she can help others break free from the story binding them. But doing so puts everyone’s Happily Ever After in jeopardy. Some princesses will do whatever it takes to protect their endings. Even if it means betraying the one closest to you.
