Mia: What is the name of the book where we’ll find you? Can you tell us a little about it?
Bastet: I’m found in the novel True Form. This book is about a curse that imprisons my family to mortal form for the crimes of my sibling. We are called the Originals, shapeshifting felines who once lived in ancient Egypt. The book starts where I am looking for a job at a psychic shop in Ontario.
Mia: Tell us a little about yourself. Where do you fit into the story? What should we know about you?
Bastet: I’m a very confident person with strong psychic ability. Living in ancient Egypt I had a soft spot for children and enjoyed playing music for them. After the curse I began to forget the small things I enjoyed so that I could focus on survival.
I love cats, that should be a given! As an immortal I could shift into any wild cat of my choice. Now with the curse on us, Sun and I take turns between a domesticated cat and the form of a fragile human. This trade happens for ten years at a time. I miss the cat form a lot. I am pretty determined to find the person who is prophesied to break my curse.
Mia: What do you think of the author? Be honest. We won’t tell.
Bastet: She’s a lot like Lily, our Spirit Walker in True Form. She loves animals and probably would never allow for Sun or I to taste a wild mouse…ever…. I’d be stuck eating cat food if she were my owner.
Mia: How do you feel about the story you’re in?
Bastet: There’s enough action and drama to keep my mind occupied!
Mia: Do you like being a character in the book?
Bastet: Of course, whatever helps get cats more attention is great I can’t believe people don’t even worship them anymore….
Mia: How do you see your future? Without giving anything away about the story, naturally.
Bastet: A lot of battles and decisions about love.
Mia: What do you know about your author’s plans? Can we expect to see you in any future stories?
Bastet: I should be in the next two books of the series. Sarah never knows what’s happening until her fingers start typing. So I know details only two seconds after she does.
Mia: Let’s say they make a movie about this book. Who do you want to play you, and why?
Bastet: I don’t really know anyone famous. The person would have to love cats.
