Welcome to the Hotseat of Truth, a device in which your protagonist is trapped. The only way to escape is to answer five searching questions completely honestly or the Hotseat will consume them to ashes!
Today’s victim is Kami, Kameron Lewis, the teenage heroine of Layla Pinkett’s (a.k.a L.N. Denison) upcoming first-contact novel set in the 1980’s – ‘Kami and the Boy Who Fell To Earth’.
How did you feel when you realised you had met a real alien?
Well, I was scared at first, who wouldn’t be, right? But when I saw how much he looked like us, I realised that the situation wasn’t so scary. Yeah! When I looked closer, there were some small differences, like a bigger forehead…and those eyes. Now? I think I’m in an episode of Mork and Mindy…it’s pretty cool.
If you had one wish in all the world, what would it be?
My only wish is that my mum would get better. Something happened when I was younger, and she’s been drinking ever since. She has never told me what it was, though, and I wish she would.
What is the most dangerous thing you ever did?
Finding Albor? Okay, not the most dangerous. I took risks when I was younger though. I used to like climbing until I nearly fell out of a tree. Not any old tree. The tallest tree in the forest. Thank god for George. He was behind me, and kept a tight hold.
What makes you really happy?
Listening to my Walkman, and the old Bowie tracks that I recorded from my mum’s stack of LPs.
If you could do one thing differently, what would it be and why?
Treat my bestie, George a bit better. He takes so much flack from me when my mum’s in a bad way, but he always seems to take it on the chin…good ole George, he deserves better from his bud.
