Author Spotlight - Character Interview with Grayson Kentfield from Victorian Scoundrel
GAEL: I'm Gael from MUSEum here today with Grayson Kentfield, Earl Swinton from Victorian Scoundrel. Tell us how you met Alice Windsor.
GRAYSON: Oh, she was a sight! She wore a pastel dress down to her knees, short sleeves, and v-neck that revealed her cleavage! She was a vision – even with that odd little coin necklace and her glasses. She marched right up to Buckingham Palace looking like the most unusual waif I've ever seen and actually expected to get in.
GAEL: What about Alice appeals to you?
GRAYSON: She's quite clever, yet quirky. She cares. She's curious. And she has a secret that I'm determined to discover.
GAEL: Do you have an exhibit in the Crystal Palace?
GRAYSON: No, I have no talent for making things, but I'm very passionate about cleaning up London. There's simply too much soot in the air.
GAEL: What are you doing about the soot?
GRAYSON: I support the Prime Minister, Sir John Russell. We're pushing a bill through Parliament to pay for the discovery of alternate fuel.
GAEL: Doesn't your fellow MP, Ridgecroft, believe in alternative fuel, too?
GRAYSON: Curious sort he is. He walks around in leather wearing goggles and is determined to transmogrify coal into black oil. Sir John and I don't know what to make of him.
GAEL: What do you think of Alice's cousin, Edmund.
GRAYSON: He's a descent sort, but he's as odd as Alice. Prince Albert's rather fond of him and I know the Prince is a good judge of character.
GAEL: What have you learned about Alice that surprises you?
GRAYSON: She drinks coffee.
GAEL: Any last words of wisdom?
GRAYSON: I love the adventure that Alice takes me on.
