Villian Interview with Mark Campbell "Master"--Author Patricia Lynne

Mark Campbell "Master"

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What motivates you? 
What is there to know? My mother shipped me off to one boarding school after another in an attempt to keep me away from my father. She never liked him, and even at a young age, I knew the marriage was all about image. Whatever. She had no passion like Father. He taught me everything I know. Told me that great men don’t let fate guide them. They grab fate by the throat and make it deliver their destiny. That’s what I’m doing. I will not sit idly by and let the world mold me. I will mold it and everything I want will be mine.

Who are your heroes? 
My father. He was a great man. A brilliant scientist capable of changing the world if not for his untimely death.

What is your favorite food? 
Caviar. Mother forced it upon me when I was a child, but it grew on me.

How old are you? 

Why does my age matter? Age is but a number. It’s knowledge that matters the most.

What is your greatest strength? 

My intelligence and cunning. The average person underestimates the importance of both.

Do you have a weakness? 

No. *Glares*

Star Wars or Star Trek?
*Lip curls* Star Trek, of course.

Very sinister! Want to read more? Here's the book!

My name is Cyclop Blaine and I am a real person.
    “You are mine.”
I am a real person: heedless of a childhood spent under the supervision of an old man I only know as Master.
    “You belong to me.”
I am a real person: regardless of my teenage years bound by violence as the adoptive son of the Victory Street Gang's leader.
    “You will obey me.”
I am a real person: despite the visions I see in others' eyes. Snapshots of their futures.
    “You will cower before me.”
I am a real person: my life will be my own. I belong to no one.
    “You. Are. MINE.”

About the Author

I don't remember when exactly it happened; maybe while my hubby was at Bay do Noc. I had a dream one night (and I always feel like I'm ripping off Stephenie Meyers when I say this but it's the truth) and in it there was this girl and a vampire, and the cast of True Blood was trying to keep them apart. I woke with the urge to write it - although not the True Blood part. So I did. As I went, I wasn't quite sure where it was going but that didn't deter me. I kept typing along and eventually I figured out who wanted to keep Kris and Kristen apart. After that another story came to me. Then another. And another. I couldn't stop and before I knew it I had a file for writing filled with stories - not all of them finished.

I've been writing ever since. The characters in my head fight for attention and sometimes I wish I had more hands and a few computers to type it all down. In November of 2010 decided to pursue publishing my stories.
