Matt Hatch of Theoryland fame recently sat down with one of our favorite people, Harriet McDougal Rigney, for an interview. She was kind enough to divulge personal information about her life, and this beautiful interview reflects her keen wit, charm, and honesty. The interview also provides an intriguing glimpse into the culture of Charleston and a peek into the workings of the publishing industry. Here's an excerpt from the interview:
MATT HATCHJim said he started missing you after the two of you were done touring for The Fallon Blood, and that's when you started dating. Was he more like Rand, or more like Mat? In other words, did he make a concentrated effort to charm you, or did you just fall into his lap?HARRIET MCDOUGALHe wasn't like either of them; he was like Perrin. Well, he had huge shoulders and curly hair, and he had gone through—he was very gentle because he was so big. If there was ever trouble in a class he was in, in grammar school, the teacher always thought he must have done it because he was so big. So he took a lot of thought before he did things, and that's how he was like Perrin, in both of those ways. And very strong.MATT HATCHAnd do you think he wrote that into Perrin as we know him?HARRIET MCDOUGALI think he's all of them.
That is just a small taste! Go here to enjoy the complete interview.
