Guest Character Interview: Abigail, from Monochrome by H.M. Jones

PictureI’m pleased to welcome author H.M. Jones back to the blog. Last December I introduced you to her and her novel Monochrome; this time, here’s an interview with Abigail, the main character from Monochrome:

1. What is your full name? Is there anything significant about your name?
Abigail Rose Benett (maiden name Pierce).

2. How old are you?

I am 23, but just barely. I will be another year older soon, alas.3. Tell us about your family. What do you like and not like about them?
My family is just starting, really. My husband, Jason, and I have been together for a few years, and recently had a baby, Ruby Lavendar. I guess I feel like my husband doesn’t really get me right now. I’ve been having a hard time with motherhood, and he is such a natural dad. It’s the first time we haven’t been on par with each other, and it’s tough. But he is smart, sensitive and loyal. I really love that about him. Ruby is beautiful, smart and a great cuddler when she’s not crying. I only wish I could be a better mother to her. She doesn’t sleep well, and seems overly active. The doctor says she is smart, and that smart babies are harder. It wears me out, and then I feel guilty. I don’t want to think of her as a burden. I just don’t feel right about family right now. I don’t really want to talk about it anymore.

4. Who was your first kiss, and what did you think of it?

I was ten, and it was too wet. I waited a while to be kissed again, but I didn’t really enjoy kissing until I kissed a good friend of mine in high school. Kissing Stephen was great because I already adored him. I think that’s what it takes to make a great kiss, trust and love.


5. What is your occupation?
I’m a full-time student, part-time community college teacher and full-time, less than perfect mother. I guess you could say that my profession is being continually tired.

6. What are your best and worst qualities?

It’s hard to see my good qualities right now, but I feel like I am very loyal, strong and smart. My worst qualities are more apparent lately. I get angry easily, have a hard time appreciating life, being positive, I guess.

7. What quality do you value most in a romantic partner?

Communication and understanding. Jason and I used to have more of both, but it’s been hard lately. He has a great sense of humor, though, and I used to really love that. I still do, when I’m at my best.

8. What is your favorite thing to do?

I love to read, write poetry, run, teach, learn and dabble in MMA. They are hobbies, but they also make me who I am.

9. What is your greatest fear?

That I might hurt the people I love the most.

10. What is your most treasured possession?

I treasure my baby, above all else, when I’m in my right mind. I would do anything it took to make her happy. I don’t always remember how wonderful she is…Video trailer for Monochrome:
