The Dark Side: Ann Bruce

The Dark Side aims to shed light on that deep, dark, mysterious side of an author, a face that she rarely, if ever, shows to the public. What secret is she hiding behind that enigmatic smile on her official photo (if any)? what juicy tidbit is she keeping from the world? What are some of the things that she liked, things we would never know, because it's not part of her bio?

Today, we have with us ANN BRUCE, author of DARK SIDE OF DREAMING, who regaled us in a previous post with some fun facts about her book and an exclusive excerpt.

Remember, think dark, dark, dark...

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
Not realizing my phone was muted. I thought I'd have to brush up my resume for sure, but luckily my boss has a sense of humor.

Imagine that for some reason, your lights suddenly went out! What would be the first thing you’d do or say?
If I'm at work: "Yay! It's home time!" If I'm at home: "Let's hope my MBP is fully charged so I can watch Die Hard."

Are you afraid of the dark? Why or why not?
Of course not! Some of the best things happen under the cover of darkness.

Who is your favorite dark character? Why?
Sheriff of Nottingham as portrayed by Alan Rickman. (Does this one really need an explanation?)

What television series featuring dark themes did you enjoy the most? Why?
Dexter. The macabre humor is strangely captivating.

Oooohhh, I love Alan Rickman. Is there anyone better at being so dark and brooding ? No. :)
