25. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them.
The only person in any of my novels that has a pet is Henry from Phooka Tales, who is Phooka’s owner. But since the book is named after Phooka, he’s more than just a random pet. He helps save the day a couple times, and talks to Holly (or at least Holly thinks he does).
Oh, and Kindra gets a horse later in Fie Eoin. Well, the tribe gets a horse and since it’s a sacred animal belonging to her ancestor Ian Odion, she is the only one allowed to handle the horse. She thinks he’s a monster for a while (and he acts like a little monster for a while) but she ends up loving him. He doesn’t follow her around like a pet though – he’s penned so he won’t run away.
I can’t think of any other animals in my writing. My own pets play a huge part of my life, but since I love dialogue so much I guess they just don’t make it into the stories.
