Anna Schumacher Q & A.

OUaT: Tell us about the main character:

Daphne Peyton underwent a massive evolution while I was writing END TIMES. She started as a wisecracking street kid from Detroit who partied in abandoned warehouses – and while I still love that character, I realized midway through the book that she wasn’t the right protagonist for this story.
The Daphne Peyton who emerged is a survivor. She is tough and quiet, and finds solace in hard work. I didn’t have her working on the oil rig in my outline or in the first draft, but the more I got to know her the more I felt like she was begging me from the pages to let her do this tough, traditionally male job. She feels responsible for the oil, and wants to be a contributing member of the Peyton family – she feels very uncomfortable living under their roof without contributing.

Although she started as just a character, Daphne became a kind of symbol for me: of what I admire in women, and of the equality that I hope women will find someday.

End Times
Author: Anna Schumacher
Released: May 20th 2014
Publisher: Razorbill

When life gets too tough to bear in Detroit, Daphne flees to her Uncle Floyd’s home, where she believes she’ll find solace in the silent hills of her childhood summers. But Daphne’s Greyhound bus pulls over in downtown Carbon County and it’s not silence that welcomes her. It’s the sound of trumpets.

Daphne’s desire to start again in simple country comfort is instantly dashed as the townsfolk declare that the End Times are here. And incredible occurrences soon support their belief. Daphne does all she can to keep her head down and ignore the signs. She works a job at the local oil rig, helps around the house, hangs out with her pregnant cousin Janie and gets to know Owen, a mysterious motocross racer and fellow roustabout at the rig. But soon a startling discovery shatters her resolve and calls into question all her doubts and fears.
