We're Grace and Thomas Lockhaven. We pretty much met the same way ALL writers meet each other, we met at the gym. While other people discussed their workouts we discussed things like, how to reverse a "creeping death" spell cast by an evil wizard. We could have filled a book with pictures of people's faces that overheard our conversations. Quest Chasers grew from these conversations and now we hope to pass on to you the thrilling adventures of Eevie and Tommy as we bring them to life.
What is something unique/quirky about you? Grace: The gym members call me an “ant” because I am small but strong. I train 5 days a week and am in the 98% percentile for my bodyweight in comparison to what others can lift. Thomas: I prefer to write on paper and not the computer. I like the feel of actually writing out stories, sappy love songs, food poetry etc., and then typing them up later.
What are your top 10 favorite books/authors? Grace: The Blackthorn Key, The Lost Years of Merlin, Graceling, Harry Potter 1, Harry Potter 2, Harry Potter 3, Harry Potter 4, Harry Potter 5, Harry Potter 6, Harry Potter 7 - hehehe, see how I did that? Thomas:Learning to Rap with Dora,Exciting Adventures with an Abacus… Ok, just kidding of course. I’d have to sayKnitting on the Run, was one of my favorite books about a con artist that knitted a beautiful argyle scarf whilst on the run from the police.
If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day? Grace: Thomas is my absolute favorite person in the whole universe. I would spend it with him and appreciate every minute that I’m with him. We don’t have to do anything. It’s just knowing that he’s right there with me that makes me really happy. Thomas: I’m gonna have to say ditto! How do you improve on that?
Who is your hero and why? Grace: Thomas is my hero. No matter what happens, he always pushes through and works hard to reach his goals. I would’ve never been even close to where I am today without him. I would’ve been stuck working in an office and living a lifeless life. Thomas: I’m gonna have to say - Rune Gjeldnes, he was a Norwegian explorer, OK, OK I just Googled famous Norwegian explorers… I’m gonna have to say ditto with Grace’s comments above, except replace Thomas with Grace and I would have been working, driving one of those little golf ball collection buggies being pelted with balls.
What book do you think everyone should read? Grace: Quest Chasers, haha. I think that The Lost Years of Merlin is an amazing book that’s not very often heard of. I loved it and want to read it again, since it’s a series and I forgot what happened in the story. Thomas: That was funny Grace! I really enjoyed The Blackthorn Key series written by Kevin Sands. I’m impressed with his writing skills and the amount of research he puts into each of his books.
