Q&A with Kama Falzoi Post

Q: Can you describe your novel in five words or less?

A: Girl battles for otherworldly love

Q: What was your favorite part about writing InHuman?

A: Probably getting down the last three words, sitting back, and feeling like I’d added something to the world.

Q: Do you have any writing rituals?

A: I usually wrap myself in organza silk, light some soy candles, and sit perfectly in the center of a ring of smooth river stones. Oh wait, that’s a different ritual. So…nope.

Q: What’s your favorite snack?

A: Probably every snack that exists. I was born to snack. If I had to pick one, I would choose chips and salsa. But not just any chips. They have to be blue. And not just any salsa. It has to sear my insides.

Q: Do you have any future books in the works?

A: Yes I do! Another young adult novel is close to querying. This one isn’t sci-fi, but has a paranormal slant set in contemporary times.

Q: Dogs or cats?

A: Lots and lots and lots of cats. All the cats.

Q: Is there anything that you like to do in your free time?

A: What is this “free time” of which you speak? Outside of a fulltime job, raising kids, and playing author, I try to squeeze in reading, exercise, and bubble baths.

Q: Who are some of your favorite authors?

A: My taste runs the spectrum. I love Jane Austen, W. Somerset Maugham, Stephen King, Kazuo Ishiguro. My young adult favorites are John Green, Patrick Ness, and Mindy McGinnis.  

Q: Most importantly, aliens are circling Earth, and they say that they’re going to blow it blow up. Luckily, you have been chosen to convince them otherwise (congrats!). What do you say to convince them not to blow up planet Earth?

A: I don’t know that I’d say much of anything. I’d probably approach them, look them deep in the eyes (if they had eyes), and hope they recognized the basic human goodness that exists in each and every one of us. Then I might offer some chips and salsa.

Synopsis: Mira’s mother sizes up bodies at the morgue like she’s rifling through the sales rack: this one’s too big… this one’s too small… ah, here it is. Just right. The perfect vessel for the one they’ll
call Adam.

Since Adam’s survival is the key to drawing out the Conduit—a slippery sort bent on evacuating souls from their human bodies—Mira must help him pass for a typical teenage boy. That means showing him how to talk right, walk right, chew with his mouth open... blend in.

Ironic, because blending in is has always been a challenge for Mira, especially with hair the color of a Dorito. But at their small, secluded prep school, blending in is a matter of life and death.

Because the Conduit is watching.
