SUSANNE MARIE KNIGHT INTERVIEW FOR COMPETITORS!
Back to: MAIN PAGE
Itís common knowledge that Neanderthals are
extinct, vanished from the face of the planet about 30,000 years ago. What
remains a mystery is how or why this sudden disappearance occurred. Sometimes,
however, common knowledge can be wrong....
Strangers in our midst--Iíve always been intrigued
by that idea, whether the strangers were foreigners or aliens or...
Neanderthals. What could be more fascinating than a story about ancestors of
modern man--primitive by our definition, freely walking among us, escaping
detection and thumbing their collective noses at us. Neanderthals are the
ultimate underdogs. The very word has become synonymous with crude,
boorish, and uncultured. So what would happen if a vulnerable young woman
unexpectedly comes in contact with a mysterious tourist? What if she discovers
the truth about his secret world? What if she falls in love with a Neanderthal?
As with all my books, I like to include experiences
from my life. For COMPETITORS!, I used my background in anthropology; I majored
in that subject in college. The setting is in the Bronx, New York, in my old
neighborhood, and my apartment, number 17. Maxís cat, Eins, is really my
little guy who, from his spot under my desk lamp, would keep me company when I
And if youíre curious, no, I havenít met any Neanderthals. At least I
donít think I have!
I hope you enjoy Vivianne and Maxís story.
