Crush Control Blog Tour: Willow Character Interview

1. Why did Max name your Boston Terrier Oompa? It is a very interesting name. ;)
Max told me he named my dog Oompa because he thought it looked like an Oompa Loompa from the movie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I definitely do NOT think my dog looks like an Oompa Loompa :)

2. Is hypnosis difficult to learn?
Well, I've watched my mom do it for so long that it just sort of became natural. I think the hardest part is having the confidence to know you can do it.

3. What is your favorite childhood memory when you and Max were together?
Max and I did so many crazy things together! I think my favorite memory would not be one isolated event, but rather the feeling I always got when I was with him - that I could do anything and he'd have my back. That I always had someone who would stick by my side and support me whether it was if I needed help down from a tree, or comfort from a bad day.

4. What is your favorite book?
I love Ramona and Beezus by Beverly Cleary. Ramona reminds me of Max and Beezus reminds me of me.

5. Name one thing that you don't regret doing in Crush Control.
Well, even though I know it was wrong, I don't regret using hypnosis to help Mia. I know she could have gotten hurt and I know that was wrong but ultimately, because of everything, Mia was able to really talk to her parents about how she felt. Without the hypnosis and all that happened, she'd still be faking everything and miserable. So I know the hypnosis was wrong and I won't do it again, but the ultimate ending with Mia was positive.

Thanks for stopping by Willow (and Jennifer ;))!


  1. I love character interviews! And her poor Boston Terrier, they don't look like oompa loompas! Well, maybe a little, but those faces are so darn cute:) I've heard good things about this book, looking forward to reading it!

  2. Great interview! I think Willow's dog was one of my favorite parts of Crush Control. :p
    And yeah, I can kind of see Willow as a Beezus type.

  3. I love character interviews! Really makes me want to read the book now!! Adding it to my WL :)


I love comments and make sure to read everyone of them. I'd love to hear what you think!
