Conor and the Crossworlds by Kevin Gerard
What's his name?
Why did you pick that name?
I picked Conor because of Conor Larkin in Leon Uris' book Trinity. Jameson, well, you know.
Give us a brief description of how he looks.
He's a ten year old boy wearing his pajamas while traveling to different worlds. A good, Irish looking boy, blonde hair and freckles.
Is there anything unusual about his appearance?
Well, he is riding on the back of a 3000 pound flying cougar who can speak and wield magical powers.
Who does he love? Why?
He loves his Uncle Jake, who he recently lost to a heart attack. Uncle Jake was his best friend, and when he dies, Conor's life is shattered.
Does this person love him?
Uncle Jake loved Conor deeply, as he did with all of his nieces and nephews.
Tell us about his family. Are they important to him?
Very much so. His mother and father take excellent care of him. His family has three cats, and he has a big sister that loves to pick on him. Most of all, though, he loved his Uncle Jake more than anything.
Where is he from?
He lives in Northern California, at the foot of the Redwood Highway.
Does his hometown affect his behavior, thoughts and attitude?
Maybe somewhat. He's pretty much a normal ten year old. He likes to play video games, ride bikes and play in the forest.
What does he want out of life?
In the beginning of the story, he wants his Uncle back more than anything else.
What's his biggest secret? (Only share if it isn't a spoiler in the story.)
He's not who he thinks he is, but he won't find that out until deep into the fourth book of the series.
Did you write more than one story about him?
Yes, his story encompasses five books.
How would he describe you?
A fun guy, but a little too driven sometimes.
Is there anything else about your hero that we need to know? Feel free to share.
Conor is a good person. His parents raised him well. He is a good boy with sound principles, and good values and morals.
