Kristin Cast: Oh.

P. C. Cast: Oh no! [laughs]

Kristin Cast: [laughs] I love that she is an independent woman and has taught me to be one as well, and thatís important.

P. C. Cast: Ah, thatís really nice.

Kristin Cast: Oh, youíre welcome.

P. C. Cast: [laughs]

Matthew Peterson: Now, P.C. your chance. Whatís the best thing you love about your daughter?

P. C. Cast: Best thing. Thatís hard because thereís so many things that I respect and appreciate about her. I love that she is her own person. That she surprises me a lot by who sheís becoming as a woman, and I really like and respect who it is that sheís becoming.

Matthew Peterson: Let me ask you another question, real quick, too. Oh, P.C. just real quick, are you working on another Goddess Summary book as well?

Matthew Peterson: Of the next year, okay, okay.

P. C. Cast: Yes, Iím also working on Burned, the seventh book in the House of Night series.

Matthew Peterson: In the House of Night series, okay. And now this is a fun question. If you could have a vampire power, what would it be?

P. C. Cast: I would want an affinity for earth.

Matthew Peterson: For earth, okay.

Kristin Cast: I would want all of them.

[Everyone Laughs]

Matthew Peterson: Typical, typical!

Kristin Cast: Iíd want all of them.

Matthew Peterson: Of course!

Extra Material That was Cut from the Show Because of Time Constraints

Note that you can also listen to this while you read it (you'll need to fast forward past the bonus questions).

Matthew Peterson: And, Kristin, are you still going to University of Tulsa?

Kristin Cast: No.

Matthew Peterson: Okay, but were you going to University of Tulsa at the time?

Kristin Cast: Yes.

Matthew Peterson: You were. Did that affect your schooling at all?

Kristin Cast: It actually didnít affect my schooling at all until around the time Chosen came out because it debuted at . . .#2?

P. C. Cast: Yeah.

Kristin Cast: . . .on the New York Times list. And after that happened, now itís been like this huge whirlwind of tours and deadlines and different promo things. And so not until after then did it actually impact anything I was doing.

P. C. Cast: And sheís still going to school; she just changed universities and focuses . . .

Kristin Cast: Right, Iím just no longer there.

P. C. Cast: . . . but sheís still here in the area and going to school. Itís a lot for her to juggle and you know thatís why sometimes when people want us for an event, they get ME.

Matthew Peterson: Yeah, yeah.

P. C. Cast: Because if she canít miss a test or miss a particular class, Iíve said, ďYou have to be here for it.Ē You know, Ďcause Iím still the teacher/mom person.

Matthew Peterson: Yeah. Ten years teaching English. Well, Iím glad to have you both on the show.

P. C. Cast: So, and I still, you know, teenagers are still scarily a pretty large part of my life. My ex-students wonít let me go very easily. So, I still have like my finger to the pulse.
