Author Spotlight - Interview with Patricia, heroine of Kidnapped
STEPH: Patricia, what was the worst part of being in space?
PATRICIA: Being in space! It was absolutely horrifying. It's beautiful, but really big and scary. Well, after I got past the first shock, I think it was the food. These people are so fixed on efficiency you wouldn't believe it. It's like… eating a bar of cereal, but more like hay, day after day after day. I would have killed someone for some real food. Not killed, exactly, but you know what I mean…
STEPH: Travis took you to a restaurant though, right?
PATRICA: Yes, he did. I was so scared at the time, but he did his best. I don't think he understood why I didn't want to eat anymore hay-bars, but he tried to fix it for me. He even got me chocolate!
STEPH: I hear you had a problem with your clothes too?
PATRICIA: Oh, yes, what an ordeal that day was. I stepped into this personal cleanser; it's a tube that's their version of a shower. It's a carwash - it sprays stuff over you and dries you off. You get clean, but it's not pleasant. Anyway, when I got out of the tube, my clothes were gone, and I thought someone took them. Imagine standing on a spaceship in the middle of nowhere, no clue of how to get home, without a thread to wear. I had to put on some alien clothes, Travis said they were from prisoners, I don't even want to know where he got them.
STEPH: If your life was a movie, who would play you?
PATRICIA: Mila Kunis, definitely. Everyone says I look just like her. *fluffs hair* My writer says it might be hard to accomplish because she's very famous and probably busy, but hey, a girl can dream, right! I always say if you do something, you should do it right.
