moonlight-mas-cover-updateInterview with the heroine from Moonlight Masquerade by Ruth Axtell:

1. Céline, tell me the most interesting thing about you.    I seem to have a penchant for danger. I have this butler who recently came to reside in my household, and I seem terribly attracted to him even though I am coming to suspect he is a spy.

2.  What do you do for fun?   I take a boat ride up the Thames, leaving the dirt of London and enjoy the countryside down around Richmond.

 3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?  Confronting my sister-in-law, my late husband’s sister. I give her food and shelter but knows she dislikes me. I feel an obligation to help her but know she doesn’t appreciate anything I do.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life? Going through the kind of hurt I did when I lost my first love.

5.  What do you want out of life?  To see my country (France) free with true democratic principles.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?  Helping those who depend on me (my French compatriots, my maid & cook, because they are risking their lives) for the cause of France.

7.  Do you read? Oh, yes!  If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?  I love all the novels being published in Britain these days, Walter Scott and the new mysterious author of Pride and Prejudice, to name a couple. I also read Lord Byron’s poems.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would not be so passionate about things.

9. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?  I would go to the 1600s France, the time of Molière, Racine, Corneille and the other great French dramatists. It seems like a very romantic, swashbuckling era.
