Interview with Miriam Miller aka Princess of the Light
Tell us about yourself, please.
My name is Miriam Miller and I am the Princess of the Light. I am in my late twenties and I work as a manager of a bookstore. I try to live a normal life but with angels and demons popping up, it's hard to explain sometimes. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to curl up with a good book. I love books.
What's your internal limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need to do during this story?
Hmm, I would say my biggest limitation is to ignore the inner demons within and to have a pure heart. Battling with demons is not as hard as you might think. I can wail on demons all day but to stay pure, to focus on the Light is a constant struggle. It's the true test of evil versus good and for me, my heart needs to be pure. If not, I am no better than the demons I face.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
For me, it's believing that I can't do what needs to be done. I have been chosen to be the Princess of the Light. Who am I compared to others? I am not a pious woman like Mother Teresa. I'm just me, plain-old Miriam. What if I fail? Will God send me to Hell?
What's your external complication? In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
Dealing with the constant attacks by Than and Lisbeth is enough to fear but what I dread most is becoming a warrior for darkness. I have been blessed with all these abilities and yet the temptation is so strong to give in to Than. Becoming a weapon of darkness is my worst nightmare.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
What would that person say about you?
Joe Deacons is the love of my life and he is the most caring, wonderful man in the world. Even though he came from a wealthy family, he is filled with compassion for those in need. He shows kindness to others and strives to make a difference in the world. He has shown me what it means to love another unconditionally and I wouldn't know what I would do without him. His love gives me the strength to fight the darkness and together we cannot be defeated!
Joe would definitely say that I am his angel and I can do no wrong. He would probably also mention that I have an inner strength that defies explanation. He would gush about all the ways that I give to others without regard to myself. He would finally mention that I am a faithful woman.
What special skills do you rely on?
I have many skills ranging from athletic ability to weapons training but the greatest skill I have to let go and be an instrument of the Light. Pushing aside my ego and needs, being one with the Light is the greatest advantage I have against the darkness. The Light defeats the darkness. Knowledge is also a terrific skill. Knowing how to defeat the demons and how to spread the Light is almost as good as a sword.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
Yes, I was thrilled with how it ended. I thought my author did a fantastic job and even threw in a few surprises that I was not expecting.
About the Writer
You have the length of a tweet (140 characters) to describe yourself as a writer. Let's see what you can do.
I'm an inspirational writer who makes the world a better place. I create interesting characters who take the reader inside their head.
Why did you choose to write about this character?
I chose to write about Miriam because she is the Princess of the Light and the reader wants to know more about her. She is my favorite character in the book and I hope that readers will love her as much as I do.
Was there anything you discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
I discovered that even when the chips are down, she rises up like a phoenix. She has an inner strength that I wish I had.
When you wrote about this character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
I loved writing the love story from Miriam's point of view. It reminded me of my own love story with my husband. I also loved writing the final battle scene.
What made me cry was when Lisbeth gets the upper hand on Miriam and Miriam thinks she has failed. It's the lowest point in her life and she feels such despair.
Why do you write?
I write because I have something to say and if I don't get it out, I will suffocate. Writing is like breathing for me and I have been blessed with the gift of writing since I was a little girl.
What other character from this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I'd love to do the back-story on Than. He is a powerful demon and was once an angel like Ethanial. I may have to write a prequel telling his story someday.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Yes, I have outlines for four more books and have started writing book two.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
I first wanted to thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to read my book. I hope you are inspired and enjoy the world I have created. There is a message here and I hope you will join me in spreading the Light. Just like Miriam, we all can make a difference.
I also wanted to let the readers know that a portion of each book that is sold will go directly to food banks and other services so that people like the Walking Man are cared for. Together, we can end hunger and help those in need.
