Re: Attica Question #19 ~ Why Attica?

I've just returned from a trip to Denmark and Sweden (looking at Viking boats etc) and spent quite a long time reading all the interesting comments and observations made on 'Attica'. I hadn't realised how in-depth these discussions could be and am most impressed by the questions and answers, the res...

Re: Attica Question #10 ~ Katerfelto

Katerfelto, hmmm, yes. This was actually the name of a Prussian quack doctor who came to England in the 1800s and practiced on patients telling them he could cure them of the flu 'just like that' when of course he could not. It's also the name of a phantom horse that lived on Exmoor in the West Coun...

Re: Attica Tidbit #8 ~ Inuit Carving

Needless to say I collect Inuit carvings - they are rather expensive so I have only six - a dancing bear, a tribal drummer, a hunter, a fisherman - etc. I love them to bits,

Re: Attica Question #7 ~ Nelson

Nelson - ah, yes, he was real cat. He was owned by some friends of ours when we lived in Hong Kong and he was such a great personality. There were many snakes in HK in the New Territories where our friends lived, including king cobras, and Nelson treated them all with contempt. Sadly he died while I...

Re: Attica Question #6 ~ Boys and Girls/Men and Women

Heck, I can't keep up with you guys, you have written almost a novel length while I'm sleeping. I'll have to read all the posts when I get home and have the time to browse, there's far too many here. (I'm supposed to be out looking at Viking ship burials!) I just thought I'd address the issue of Mar...

Re: Attica Question #2 ~ Chloe

You guys have hit the nail on the head almost with every comment. Chloe is the brains of the operation and the most intuitive when it comes to feelings. As you know these characters are named after my grandchildren and there's something of their real characters in the fictional ones. Jordy is very s...

Re: Attica Question #4 ~ Jordy

Hi Everyone - On the basic level this is a plot device by authors to add tension to the story. If one of the characters isn't there, the reader is wondering what's happening to him and if he's OK. However, this does happen in real life and is also part of the story too. Being the eldest Jordy does f...

Re: Attica Question #3 ~ Alex

Hi All - Magpie was closest to what I was thinking when I was writing about Alex, that the traumatic death of his father had caused him to withdraw into himself to protect himself and his emotions. It's not that he doesn't feel for his brother. He hides it. To be honest, aspergers never even crossed...

Re: Attica Tidbit #1 - Garry Kilworth

Just checking in. I'm the Garry Kilworth who wrote 'Attica' and thought I'd just answer a couple of the questions. I'm very pleased that Johnny Depp's film company has bought the movie rights to the novel. I've always admired Johnny Depp as an actor and I know he makes fine films. People have spoken...
