Mayra Calvani Interview


  1. Why didn’t you become a policeman instead of a writer?

Goodness, I’m too much of a scaredy cat to be a policeman. It’s a lot more fun—and way safer—to write about it! One of the great things about being a writer is that I can experience dangerous situations in a kind of parallel world that is completely safe.  I lead a pretty routine life, but my stories are always exciting.

  1. If you could only tell one story in your life, what would it be?

It would definitely be a story about me and the people I love—my parents, my brother, my husband, my kids, my friends. My world wouldn’t be the same without them. Without them, it would be a dark, dark story.

  1. Apples or pears?

An apple a day keep doctors away!

  1. Which of your own characters would you like to meet and why?

Paganini, the infamous violinist. I would like to ask him if it’s true he made a pact with the devil in exchange for uncanny violin playing abilities.

  1. How would you like the world to end?

Jeez…let’s see…with all the evil people burning up on earth and all the good ones finding refuge in another planet.

  1. Which genre do you wish you could write, and why?

Cozy mysteries ala Agatha Christie. It takes a very sharp mind to do that!

  1. You’re stuck on an island with only three things: A knife, a match and a stick. What would you do to survive?

No books?! Gosh, you’re cruel!

  1. Which of the following would you rather have stalking you through the night: A vampire, a werewolf, or Stephen King?

A vampire, of course. I’d ask him or her to make me immortal.

  1. Who is the best villain you’ve ever read, and why?

Lestat, though he’s more of an anti-hero than a villain. He’s a very real character. I like his cynical sense of humor, impulsiveness, and hunger for all things beautiful and transcendent.
