Greetings my favourite author. I write this to ask about your future books if you have a male character that is a Shadowhunter and doesn’t know, and he finds out about the Shadow-world, kind of like what happened with Clary and Tessa. I also want to know if you are a fan of: Teen Wolf, Supernatural, Smallville, The Vampire Diaries, Being Human (UK/US) and The Big Bang Theory? I’m excited for the coming series of yours and admire your fabulous work. — the-divine-installments
I don’t have a male character like that coming up, because I feel like I’ve already written intro-to-the-supernatural twice and I don’t think I’d want to do it again (and I don’t think a male perspective would add anything — we’ve already seen that with Simon anyway.)
There is a male viewpoint in a future book of a Shadowhunter who was born mundane and Ascended, and also a boy who is a Shadowhunter whose parents left the Clave and has grown up in the mundane world.
Of the TV shows you listed the only one I have seen is Teen Wolf, and that is because Sarah Rees Brennan brought the DVDs to Mexico this February and said “THERE IS A MURDER LIZARD IN THIS SHOW.”
I mean, I cannot resist a murder lizard.
I watch Game of Thrones, Sherlock, White Collar, Elementary, Hannibal, and now, I guess, Teen Wolf.* (It is somewhat ironic that I never watched it before, because Daniel Sharman read the Clockwork Princess audiobook and I only knew his work through his demo reel. (The casting director for City of Bones had thousands of demo reels and I watched a ton of them.) I’d seen Tyler Posey’s demo reel too so when Sarah RB and I saw him at Wondercon with Dylan O’Brian we had this conversation:
Me: Hello, you are Tyler Posey?
Me: Your demo reel was great! You’re a great actor!
Him: How nice of you! Thanks! I am a really nice guy! Here is my girlfriend! She is really nice too!
Dylan O’Brien: I am also here.
Me: I have no idea who you are!
Sarah *gives me the look you give a parent when they have done something stupid* I DO. YOU ARE ALSO TALENTED.
Me: Whatever you do, I bet it’s great!
Anyway, I have now seen Teen Wolf and I feel embarrassed in hindsight, sort of in the manner I did when I met Randall Munroe at a conference and he said he wrote a webcomic called XKCD and I asked him to write the name of it on my hand because I’d never heard of it. Then my husband was like “Why does your hand say XKCD?” and I said “I met this guy who says it’s his comic?”
Then he screamed for about two hours.
*That’s it, really. I have seen some episodes of Doctor Who.
