Lindsay Leggett, author of Flight, is under the spotlight

I’m half way through reading Lindsay’s book, Flight, and so far I love it.  The premise is unlike anything I’ve come across before and she has a really crisp writing style that hooks you from the start.  Fans of The Hunger Games will love it.  So, I couldn’t wait for Lindsay to step up to my regular author interview.


If you don’t already know, what star sign do you think your main character is?

This is so funny, because I always knew Piper had an April birthday, but never looked up her sign. She fits into Taurus. She can be a bit “bull”-headed, but is fiercely loyal. I think it fits her well.

If you could be friends in real life with any of your characters, who would it be and why?

I’d probably get on best with Sandy. He’s a bit of a computer nerd but has a huge heart.

Have you ever written a character that you’ve disliked so much you’ve scrapped them from a work?

Not in that manner. I’ve scrapped characters many times, but usually just because they didn’t add to the plot at the time, or made for too many story-lines. I generally like writing characters I dislike.

Which of your characters would frighten you if you met them in real life?

Probably Piper. She’s a pretty tough cookie, but maybe also Darcy. She’s harsh and unforgiving. I wouldn’t want to get on her bad side even for a second!

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Workaholic, Dreamer, Loyal, Quirky, Unapologetic

Do you ever consult friends when you’re stuck with a plot?

Yes. And they almost always give the worst answers! 😉 Sometimes; however, I’ll find a hidden gem I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise.

What’s your personal kryptonite?

Craft supplies and organization items that are cute. I need to have them, even if I don’t have the time to create or anything to organize.

If you could converse, a la Dr Dolittle, with one type of animal, which would it be and why?

Horse, so I could know what my horses think of me. Wait, maybe I don’t want to know. flight

Tea or coffee?

Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.
