Interview with Allyson Lindt, Author of Dungeon Crawl
26 Oct 2022
What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Dungeon Crawl?
There’s a YouTube channel featuring a creator who’s so familiar with games, that he’s got a knack for breaking them. I was watching him one day and thinking “I need to write a character like that.” Except, I thought it might be a lot more fun to make her a she, and have her go toe-to-toe with the developers who write her favorite game to break.
If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Dungeon Crawl, what would they be?
She’s So Mean by Matchbox Twenty would be Elliot’s theme song, Come Again by Damn Yankees would be Link’s, and Fallyn’s song… I have so many songs for Fallyn, but I might have to choose Do What U Want by Lady Gaga.
What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?
I love so many genres, but my absolute favorites are contemporary anything–romance, fiction, fantasy–and urban fantasy. I love to write the same things I love to read, though I probably read a lot more urban fantasy than I write.
What books are on your TBR pile right now?
I’m super looking forward to Thor’s Heart by Sotia Lazu. Her gods in modern settings are some of my favorite books, and I’m excited to see what this new series of hers is like (besides amazing!)
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
There’s a scene in the book that takes place at a masquerade and karaoke party, Link is singing, and Elliot and Fallyn are dancing. I had the scene in my head for weeks before I got to it, and it was so much fun to write.
Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)
I really like to go to coffee shops to write. I have a few that I rotate through, and I prefer to be there early in the morning. A large coffee and a blueberry muffin and I’m set for words for a few hours.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Always be willing to adapt.
If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
It’s not always easy to figure out who we are and where we belong, but when we do, it’s worth it.
