One Word Interview with S.M. Anderson

Today we welcome science fiction author S.M. Anderson to the writing chair. I am thrilled to be part of the blog tour for her new sci-fi adventure novel, Copied.


What fictional world would you most like to live in?
Damar 

From Robin McKinley's Blue Sword, I assume? I haven't thought about Damar in a long time, but I'd love to live there too.
 
What are you asking Santa to bring you for Christmas? 
Tuition for Writer conferences

Smart idea! I hope you get lots.
 
Which of your characters is the most like you?
 
Xan

The main character in Copied. We writers often have lots in common with our MCs, though I presume you weren't genetically engineered. ;)
 
What historical figure would you most like to have lunch with?
 
Eliza R Snow or  William Tyndale

I love both of those answers so much! Both wonderful and interesting people.
 
You're having your characters over for Christmas dinner. What are
you serving?

Sushi

That wouldn't be my first choice, but I think it would be interesting to dine with your characters.
 
Thanks so much for joining us today!

S. M. Anderson (Sarah Anderson) was born in Lima, Peru. She has lived in seven different countries, on five continents, and speaks a smattering of languages. As a child and even young adult, writing and reading were difficult for her, so difficult that she received extra help outside the classroom and was diagnosed with a learning disability. However, she always loved stories, especially ethnic folktales from the countries she lived in. It was the desire to create stories of her own that fueled her determination to overcome the challenges that came with writing. She has a BA in Art Education from BYU, with a minor in Russian, and a love of power tools. She has a growing family of three kids and currently lives in Springville, Utah.

You can find Ms. Anderson on her website or on Facebook

Adopted off the black market, Alexander Mitchell, has no idea his DNA is copyrighted and property of military weapons giant Texacom Defense. Nor that his DNA is being used to develop an army of clones. When the company discovers he was not properly disposed of 17 years ago, they send an assassin copy, BETA23, to terminate Xan and cover it up After he narrowly escapes BETA23’s first attempt, Xan teams up with Lacey, a genetically engineered genius he’s surprised to find common ground with— only they’re awkward together. Half of the time she stares at Xan like the science project he is and the other half…let’s just say Xan can’t keep his eyes off her lips. When they manage to capture a company copy by luck and sheer stupidity on Xan’s part, Lacey is determined to see the good in their prisoner to the point she believes BETA23 can be persuaded to give them the intelligence they need to keep the company forever off Xan’s back. Xan’s not sure if he can trust the darker version of himself, not when it means gambling with the lives of his family and the possibility of losing Lacey.

Watch the book trailer!

Interesting choice for Christmas dinner!
Damar . . . I had almost forgotten, and now I'm picturing it in my mind. :)
Copied sounds interesting!

Although an alternative electronic product is available that can provide some of the profit of human touch and we call it massage chair, and all of these chairs in market are not up to the mark.
