As part of the blog tour for the release of the second Oksa Pollock novel, The Forest of Lost Souls, I have a character profile for the main character...
---Name: Oksa Pollock
Age: 13 years old (at the beginning of the series), 17 years old at the end
Favourite film: The Dark Knight
Favourite dish: her grandmother’s pirojkis (small meatpies – it’s a Russian recipe), spiced tea and raspberries. Note: she hates leeks.
Favourite TV series: Heroes, Being Human, The Misfits (only stories where people have to hide who they are...)
Favourite subject at school: History
Favourite place in Paris: Montmartre, Sacré-Cœur
Favourite places in London since she moved: St James’s Park and Leicester Square
If she could have another magical power, what would it be? The ultimate one: bring dead people back to life.
If she was on a desert island with only one thing, what would it be? She’s very practical, so she would certainly choose something useful: a knife or a warm piece of clothing…
