Character Interview: Dawn - Reborn to Burn @TheAnnaDurand #RLFblog #PNR

Reborn to Burn
by Anna Durand 
The character interview allows a hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. Today's interview is with Dawn from Reborn to Burn.

Interview with Dawn

Tell us about yourself, please.
Until yesterday, I was a mummy who died 3,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. Scientists regenerated my body, though nobody knows how or why I woke up. Since I have no memories of my previous life, I let my hero Jake name me. He chose Dawn, because the Egyptians believed the dawn was a time of rebirth.
What can you not do (but need to do) during this story?
I need to remember my first life, understand why I was reborn, and escape from the scientists who are hunting me.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
I feel I shouldn't be alive; I'm an abomination, a freak with DNA from frogs and microscopic creatures. Am I truly human again, or something more sinister? The question haunts me.
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most and why.
I worry I'll turn into a zombie or some other unnatural monster. Jake says that's ridiculous, but who knows? Hey, I'm a resurrected mummy girl, so anything seems possible.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Thaat would be Jake Maxwell, the man who helped me break out of Redeo Biotech. He claims he's just a grad student, but I suspect he's a secret agent or maybe a superhero in hiding, given his talent for outsmarting the bad guys. He doesn't see a monster when he looks at me, just a woman — and he awakens desires in me I never imagined existed.
What would that person say about you?
Jake says I'm a woman, not a thing. He calls me beautiful, sexy, and wonderful — and more importantly, he makes me feel that way.

About the Writer

I'm an award-winning writer, a reader, a freelance librarian, and an audiobook addict. I specialize in sexy, suspenseful paranormal romances.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
Reborn to Burn, and whole Reborn series, is all about Dawn's journey. Jake undergoes a transformation, too, but the stories revolve around Dawn's literal rebirth and the questions swirling around her origins and nature. She is a mystery — a woman with no memory, no name (until Jake christens her Dawn), and no explanation for her awakening.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
I uncovered a shocking secret about Dawn and what rebirth has done to her, but I wouldn't want to spoil the big surprise! I also learned she's willing to sacrifice herself to save Jake, which surprised Dawn, too.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Yes. Reborn to Burn is the second book in the Reborn series, with Reborn to Die as the first one. The third installment, Reborn to Avenge, will be published later this year.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven't tried yet?
I'd love to try historical romance and urban fantasy. I read voraciously, and those are two of my favorite genres — after paranormal romance, of course!
