Last year, I've had the privilege to schedule an interview with authoress Liesel K. Hill, author of Persistence of Vision, a young adult, dystopian novel. She was kind enough to allow me to read and review Persistence of Vision, as well as answer a few of my questions! (She made me such a happy fan-girl~!)
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading her book. Persistence of Vision has got me cheering for her awesome characters! And I suggest that you should read it, too! If you would like to read my review of Persistence of Vision, you can read it HERE.
To officially kick off 2013, Book Junkie Joint's first post is an Author Interview featuring Liesel K. Hill! =)
Q: First off, your book Persistence of Vision is a dystopian which distinctly deals with the intricacy of the human brain. What was the inspiration for coming up with the brain as a source of power for Persistence of Vision?
A: It’s something I’ve always been interested in. Before I stopped kidding myself and turned to writing as my calling, I was taking pre-med classes. I had a lot of science, but I found western medicine and science not to my liking. I’m someone who things the brain and soul are intricately connected to each other and to the body. I believe people can heal themselves to a much greater extent than most of them realize. Scientists estimate that we only use a fraction of our brain power—something like 12%--and Albert Einstein, a genius by anyone’s standards, probably only used 15% of his brain. (Don’t quote me on those percentages.) Imagine what we could do if we used 100% of our brain power!
Q: Speaking of powers, I’m curious about how you came up with them. What was the inspiration behind each of the members’ powers and where did you base them?
For Marcus, I am the world’s biggest Jensen Ackles fan! Totally love him. I’d love him as Marcus too!
