Interview with Victoria Scott author of Violet Grenade

Interview with Victoria Scott on Violet Grenade



1. We meet Domino when she is already sharing a house with Dizzy. How did Domino and Dizzy meet?
They met at an arcade. Domino sees Dizzy stealing a can of Coke, and she follows him out the door. As Domino says, “I followed him then, and I follow him now. He is my person. Not that I need one.”


2. There were times in the book that I thought that Wilson was a demon who was riding shotgun with Domino and other times I thought she was a true multi-personality. Is that what was intended or can we know if Wilson is a personality?
Interesting! Wilson is indeed a personality inside Domino’s head. He was created after something tragic happened to her.


3. With people who live on the streets that are without homes, they are used to people disappearing all of the time, but, Domino formed an attachment with Dizzy that seemed a bit more one-sided. Was this because it was Domino's first experience living in the streets and maybe not Dizzy's? Or, is this because it is just because Dizzy has a form of attachment disorder or the inability to form attachment?
I think it was simply two different people coming into a relationship. Everyone is looking for something when they enter a partnership—whether that’s companionship or sex or security or fun—and in this scenario, Domino simply needed Dizzy more than he needed her.


4. Where is Domino's mother?
In my mind, she is still out there. Searching for Domino, most likely. Or maybe she got what was coming to her. ;)




5. What is your favorite scene in Violet Grenade?
It’s definitely when Wilson has his moment to shine. I was dying to write that scene, and when it finally arrived, I felt like a kid in a candy store.

But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory.
