Goodreads Summary
"I need to get you to the hospital." He was taking responsibility for me. Only my parents had that job. I stretched my hand out in protest, but the lack of depth perception had my trembling fingers grazing his overheated neck. I swore his whole body shook.

When five-year-old Anna Pierce is offered a chance to have nightmare-free nights for the small price of her voice, she jumps at it. Silence has to be better than all-consuming dreams about blood and death and fangy monsters. The bargain she strikes comes with a secondary benefit, visions of a person's future potential. The combination of visions and silence changes her very nature and soon she's diagnosed with autism. Twelve years of living in her head comes to a screeching halt the moment Peter Davis pulls her out of an icy river. 

Her new life has her twirling, tiptoeing, and crashing through unfamiliar territory, one filled with a cranky grandma, a knocked up cousin, an unpleasant cousin, a bunch of mostly good vampires, and the boy who rescued her. 

To top it all off, the deal she made at five is no more. Anna is expected to talk, to figure out her resurfacing nightmares, and to control her ever-growing powers. And she'd better get it done soon because if the good vamps want a piece of a living, breathing Touched girl, the evil ones simply want. They'll take Anna for their very own.

Soul Walker is the first book in the Touched Girl Series. It's approximately 91,000 words. Be on the look out for Soul Bender, coming March 2013.
(excerpt from Amazon Product Description

I am so thankful to have Peter with me today! He's going to answer a few questions for us. He's usually a pretty private person so this is definitely a treat.

JC: Anna is silent for a very long time, how have you have gotten to know her without her voice?

Peter: I used to determine exactly what kind of day she was having based on her smile. She had so many incremental variations. My two favorites were her happy beyond belief smile and her cranky, but don't want to hurt her parents' feelings smile. She did this thing with one corner of her mouth that said so many things. “Stop dancing in front of my favorite TV show.” or “I wasn't ready to come out of the water.”

JC: Very true, a lot can be said in a person's smile. How about this, if you could spend an entire day doing anything you wanted, what would it be?

Peter: Anna asked me to answer your questions honestly since I've been on her case about sharing with me. Can you believe she used those words 'on her case'? I'd be on one of Anna's adventures with Anna. She's never been sky diving. Her mom vetoed that idea. We'd catch something to eat on the drive back. No vamp speed or vamp powers. Just human Peter and human Anna. Later, with dusted up hair and skin, we'd . . . I don't think honesty stretches that far.

JC: You're right...that might dive a little into the TMI category.  However, Anna is not modest in the slightest, how do you feel about this trait of hers?

Peter: I feel like a man about it. I want to bite anyone looking at her the way I'm looking at her. Well, the biting part sounds more like a vampire response. I would beat the shit out of them.

JC: Whoa word I would use to describe you is protective. How would you describe yourself?

Peter: Lately, I've been feeling very redeemable. I'm not just a hunter anymore.

JC: That's something to be proud of - what is the thing that you are most proud of?

Peter: When my parents died in my human lifetime, I took care of my sister like she was my own child. I think I gave her a really great life in those few years I got to have with her. Whew, I don't know. Let's start over. I only talk about my sister with Anna. No. Never mind, the answer stands.

JC: OK, we'll keep it. If you could change anything, what would it be?

Peter: We repeat our mistakes, all of us, humans, vamps, creatures I'm not at liberty to discuss. I guess it's important we ask this question, but for the life of me I can't untangle the thoughts of what I'd lose if I changed a single thing about my past. Would Anna ask for her parents back? She'd tell you not to risk such dangerous wishes.

JC: You mention a lot of types of creatures out there...where are all the places that you have lived?

Peter: Believe it or not, I don't remember every single place I've lived. Lilian took us to Greece. Lance insisted we travel the French countryside. We all thought it would be cool to hitchhike from New York to San Francisco. It was a game to see who came across the most bad guys. Jared beat out Lance by two. I kissed him for it.

JC: Wow I don't even know what to say to that. Let's move on to something more mundane...what type of shoes do you wear

Peter: Comfortable ones. When Anna lived on Guam I could get away with wearing zorries...oh, sorry, slippers. Jared and I go to the mall now and then to keep Lance off our backs. I found these low sneakers I really like.

JC: Sounds like the Converses I love so much. Let's finish with - what words or phrases do you most overuse?

Peter: 'Come on, Jared. I'm right here.' Have you noticed how he flirts with Anna?

I have indeed. Peter thank you so much for coming to answer some questions with me today. I really enjoyed diving into your psyche further :)

About Robyn Jones:

I'm the mom of two hardcore boys. My oldest trained me to be matter-of-fact, no frills. My youngest wants the whole singsongy sweet package. Thank goodness for reading and writing because they are my sanity makers. I know life is all about the journey, that's why I like my fiction to be all about the destination. I want to be taken somewhere not here when I read, same goes with the stories I create. Thrills, chills, tears, and laughter, but there has to be something to hold on to at the end.

  1. Wow, really cool. And a character interview is always a blast to read. :D Thank you!

  2. I think so too. Glad you are giving it a shot :) I hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  3. He's excellent - thank you for sharing a piece of him with me today :)

  4. I LOVE character interviews. They are such a wonderful way to get more information about the book and how they tick. Thank you so much for stopping by :)

  5. That's an interesting character oh and Peter too lol, it reminds me of the little mermaid, when she wouldn't speak but the prince was still there. Sorry, I had to compare it (I'm not really comparing it, I just thought of Ariel) I'm actually interested in this book, sounds a little different from your typical characters

  6. Oh yeah, I was going to say now I'll need a Kindle, they always get the best free books lol (ok, B&N get cool free books too but Amazon always has more) and I hate reading on my computer

  7. You're right...I didn't even think about Anna being like Ariel in that aspect. Oh I don't like reading on my computer either. I don't know what I would do without my Kindle. I thought that I wouldn't like it until I got it, and now I am so attached. And yes, a lot of free books.

  8. Thank you so much for letting me share a glimpse of Peter Davis. He's one of my favorites! Great post!
