Touching the surface

1. Can you tell us a few things about yourself that we can't find on the Internet?
I can't stand drivers that don't have any common sense. I absolutely have road rage
potential if you catch me on the wrong day. Grrrr When I was a kid I never wanted to eat
my sandwiches "together." I made my mom pack all the parts in separate baggies. (I don't
do that anymore) I once swallowed my quarter on school movie day and couldn't buy a
bag of popcorn at intermission. The quarter didn't even taste good and don't ask why I
was "holding it" in my mouth *head thunk.* Lastly, I blew pepper in my brother's face to
make him sneeze (like they do on the cartoons) only I burnt his eyeballs and he hated me.
Sadly, I was not too young to know better. (He still has working eyeballs so I guess it
ended well LOL!)
1. Poi s ne spui cteva lucruri despre tine pe care nu le putem gsi pe internet?
Nu pot suporta oferii care nu au pic de bun sim. Cu siguran dein o potenial furie
rutier dac m prinzi ntr-o zi nepotrivit, ntr-o pas proast. Grrrr. Cnd eram copil
niciodat nu vroiam s mnnc sandwich-urile mele "mpreunate". Am fcut-o pe mama
s-mi ambaleze toate prile componente n pungue separate. ( Acum nu mai fac
asta ), Odat, mi-am nghiit cei 25 de ceni pe care i aveam, n ziua de film de la coal
i astfel nu mi-am mai putut cumpra o pung de floricele la pauz. Cei 25 de ceni nici
nu au avut gust bun, i nu ntreba de ce i ineam n gur. n ultimul rnd, i-am suflat
piper n fa fratelui meu ca s-l fac s stranute (cum se face n desene animate), numai c
i-am ars pupilele i pentru asta m-a urt. Din pcate, nu eram prea tnr pentru a ti mai
bine. ( Pupilele lui nc funcioneaz deci cred c totul s-a terminat cu bine LOL! )
2. Tell us something about Touching the Surface that wasnt said in the book
Hmmmm There is pizza and mosquitos in the afterlife.

2. Spune-ne ceva despre " Touching the surface ", care nu a fost spus n descrierea
Hmmmm n viaa de apoi gsim pizza si nari.
3. Where did the idea for Touching the Surface come from?
My writing seems to come from questions and issues that I have in my own life. Two
years before I started writing SURFACE my dad passed away. Subconsciously I think I
needed to write about him and make sense of bad things happening to good people. I also
needed to address some of my own fears and this was a very safe place for me to tackle
3. De unde i-a venit ideea pentru Touching the surface ?
Scrierea mea pare s vin de la ntrebrile i problemele pe care le am n via mea. Cu
doi ani nainte de a ncepe s scriu pentru SURFACE tatl meu a murit. n subcontient,
cred ca am simit nevoia s scriu despre el i s gsesc un sens pentru lucrurile rele care li
se ntmpl oamenilor buni. De asemenea, trebuia s m adresez propriilor temeri i acest
lucru a condus ctre un loc foarte sigur pentru mine s le abordez.
4. How would you describe Elliot as a character?
I'd describe Elliot as a character that grows on you. She has faults and in some ways she's
broken, but underneath she's beautiful and resilient.
4. Cum ai descrie personajul Elliot?
A descrie-o pe Elliot ca un personaj care crete nuntrul tu. Ea are defecte i din
anumite puncte de vedere e distrus, dar n interior e frumoas i plin de via.

5. What is your dream cast for your book?

Here's how I see it in my head, not necessarily from a casting perspective but the type of
character I visualized when I was writing. Elliot--Ellen Page, Trevor--Dave Franco,
Oliver--Charlie Hunnam, Mel--Debra Messing, Julia--Heidi Groskreutz (from SYTYCD
season 2)

5. Care este distribuia de vis pentru cartea ta?

Iat cum vd eu, n mintea mea, nu neaparat din perspectiva de casting, ci din perspectiva
tipului de personaj pe care mi l-am imaginat cnd am scris. Elliot - Ellen Page, Trevor Dave Franco, Oliver - Charlie Hunnam, Mel - Debra Messing, Julia - Heidi Groskreutz
( din sezonul 2 din SYTYCD ) /

6. Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
It's a mix. I took bits and pieces of experiences and emotions and used them as starting
points to make believable fictional scenes and characters.

6. Este ceva n cartea ta care se bazeaz pe experiene de via reale sau totul e pur

Este un amestec. Am luat cteva experiene i emoii i le-am folosit ca puncte de plecare
pentru a face scenele i personajele ficionale credibile.
