Tell us about your kids. Do they take after you at all?
I've had hundreds. Elders are the guardians of a fledgling until it reaches legal age. Doppelgängers all look the same, a shadow, smoke cloud, a demon's blunder with no name, no sex, no flesh, and no identity unless we wear one of you. However, we each have a will of our own.
What is your proudest mom moment?
I have none. Motherhood is a deplorable burden.
My mom used to say “I’ve had it up to here!” and “Who do you think you are?” a lot. What is your go-to momism?
"You're a demon's creation, not a human. Act like one!" and "Do you want me to find a bottle with an air tight lid?"
What is the most valuable thing your mother taught you?
Not to leave any evidence of our existence. I try to instill the importance of this as well. It's fairly simple. Kill the hosts. Wear the body until it is no longer fresh. Shed, and find another. My current ward is my only challenge in this respect. She insists on doubling up, while leaving the real human to continue on without knowledge of a carbon copy wandering about. She will be the death of both of us.
What do you see as the most challenging aspect of motherhood?
Keeping my wardrobe fresh during a heated disciplinary discussion..
How about some This or That?:
June Cleaver or Morticia Adams?
Bacon & eggs or cereal & milk?
NEITHER. WE DON'T FEED.
Themed party or meet for drinks?
I CAN BE QUITE FESTIVE.
Curlers to bed or lucky to remember a morning comb through?
I PREFER A WELL COIFFURED CADAVER
Cosmopolitan or beer?
Mini-van or Cooper mini?
WE HAVE INSTANT TRAVEL TOKENS.
Home cooked or take out?
TAKE OUT OF COURSE.
Neiman Marcus or Walmart?
BOTH CAN BE AMUSING
Wash your mouth out with soap or pay the swear jar?
I TRY NOT TO USE FOUL LANGUAGE.
Seinfeld’s Estelle Costanza or Lorelai Gilmore?
I'LL TAKE BOTH. I BORE EASLY.
Thanks so much for joining us, Ms. Doppelgänger, it was enlightening! And now, here's more about PURGATORY, a place Down Under - A New Adult paranormal romance/humor:
They were outcasts...
The doppelgänger: a myth, a night fright, as singular as an individual's nightmare—a demon's blunder in search of a love that can never be.
The wendigo: a half-breed, an abomination that hides from his own race. They won’t let him forget what he did, he can't fight who he is and a desire that ends in disaster.
...until they met.
Can two very different creatures find love in a world where hope leads to disappointment, and relationships end in death? They’ll have to fight all that is Down Under to find out.
