Jophiel Character Interview / Patricia Josephine's Path of Angels Series



BLOG TOUR:

Cherdo On The Flipside - Witches - True or False

Liz Blocker - The Moon

**************************************************


I had the pleasure of interviewing Jophiel aka Joe from the third book in Patricia Josephine's Path of Angels series. The three of us hope you enjoy it!


Hi, Joe! What is Jophiel, Path of Angels about?

Joe: I am SO glad you asked. *opens mouth, but freezes when Gabriel folds his arms and glares. Snaps mouth shut.*


Here’s the blurb:

They must fight to stay on the path.

Joe embraces his duty without fear or hesitation, always ready for the next battle. But the path has never been easy. With Michael’s return, they uncover a truth more dangerous than they ever imagined. Their enemy plans to unleash the devil himself, Lucifer. Help comes in the form of an unlikely alley: a member of the fallen.

Mariangela is trying to make amends by protecting the child she is carrying. After blindly following Lucifer in the rebellion, her misguided allegiance came with a price: banishment from heaven. Now, as she strives for forgiveness in the human world, she must fight to prevent Uriel, a fallen archangel, from using her child to free evil from Hell.

The path becomes a battleground, one which may already be lost.

Title: Jophiel
Author: Patricia Josephine
Series: Path of Angels (#3)
Length: 56 pages

Books Links:


1. What is your job?

Joe: *Plants hands on hips* I fight evil that lurks in the dark! Or, ya know, *shrugs* Fallen angels.

2. That must be thrilling and dangerous. What do you do for fun?

Joe: Annoy Gabriel. Honestly, we don’t have much down time, so hobbies have fallen by the wayside.

3. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Joe: Hmm, good question. I’m a pretty easy going guy. Not a lot gets to me. Now, Gabe on the other hand… *evil grin*

4. Gabriel sounds like he needs a few shots of something strong. *winks* How did you meet Mariangela?

Joe: Some punks were messing with her. Who picks on a pregnant lady? Really, I should have kicked their asses.

5. You should have! What was your first impression of her? (Other than her being pregnant.)

Joe: That she is an angel. I mean, she really is, but at the time I didn’t know, so… *shrugs*

6. What kind of trouble do the two of you get into?

Joe: I take offense to that question. Mary and I are angels. A.N.G.L.E.S. Do you not see my halo? *circles finger over head*

7. Haha! I guess we’ll skip that one. What moment of Jophiel, Path of Angels was your favorite?

Joe: That’s kind of tough to answer because I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Hmmm. There is a great bonding moment between me and another character. *wipes eye* It’s just heartwarming.

8. Is there anything you did in Jophiel, Path of Angels that you would change if you could?

Joe: Given my ability is being able to see events from the past, I’ve learned to not worry about what’s happened. You can’t change it, so why worry?


Hyper Round:

Food: Donuts
Drink: Miller Lite
Movie: Iron Man
Band: Metallica
Book: Ugh, please. Mikey’s the one that likes to read.
Animal: TIGER!
Color: Black. Oh wait, that’s the absence of color, isn’t it? I still pick it.




About the Author:

Patricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn't regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.

Loni Townsend said...

Great interview, Chrys! And Grats, Patricia! I've been seeing you everywhere today.

Carrie-Anne said...

Congratulations on your release, Patricia! It's nice to see an angel character who isn't some stereotype. Real angels are a lot more complex than just cherubs sitting on clouds or forces of destruction.

Kimberly said...

I'm seeing this book everywhere today! Fabulous interview! Congratulations to Patricia on her release!

Liz Blocker said...

Congratulations, Patricia! I love the story concept :)

Angels are fun characters to write about because they are so complex.

Chrys Fey said...

I'm glad Patricia is everywhere. YAY!!

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks for stopping by, Liz!

I like the sound of this book! Angels/demons always have a soft spot for me just because I like the diversity they can be written as.

Chrys Fey said...

Angels are my favorite supernatural beings to write and read about. I am never disappointed.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Congratulations on your books, Patricia. I love stories about angels.
Great interview, ladies.

Christine Rains said...

Absolutely hilarious interview! Jophiel makes me laugh. :) Congrats to Patricia! Can't wait to read the new book.

Fun interview and this looks like an intense book. Lucifer in stories makes me shudder, but I'll read and watch those stories anyway.

sherry fundin said...

I did not see the halo either. LOL

Denise Covey said...

Wow, that cover grabbed my attention. Angel stories are always entertaining in a good way. Chuckled at the interview too. Great fun, Patricia and Chrys.

Denise :-)

Lisa Thomson said...

So sassy! This sounds like the kind of angel that would come visit me in the middle of the night. Bad ass. Fun interview and interesting series, Patricia!

Shannon Lawrence said...

I'm starting to feel a little as if I'm stalking Patricia, because she's everywhere I visit! :p

Vanessa Morgan said...

This is the second time I'm stumbling upon this book today. Congratulations to the author.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks for visiting, Beverly!

Chrys Fey said...

Jophiel is a real character, but he can be serious too. He just doesn't know it. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Well, *spoiler* Lucifer hasn't made an appearance...yet. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

It's a little hard to see at time. :P

Chrys Fey said...

Angel stories are so much fun. And intense too. I love them!

Chrys Fey said...

Haha! He is a bad ass. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

Hmm...maybe you are. ;P

Chrys Fey said...

Then it was be destined for you to check it out. ;)

Stephanie Faris said...

I thought I'd already commented on this, but it must have been another blog! I don't trust my memory anymore. Congratulations to Patricia!

Chrys Fey said...

Patricia had been everywhere the past couple of days, so it was probably another blog. :)

Birgit said...

Congrats to Patricia. Joe sounds like a fun angel to be around and I love that he likes to kick ass

Sandra Cox said...

Congrats, Patricia. This sounds like a fun read.


Hey, Chrys.

sage said...

This sounds interesting. Patricia should meet another Michigan author who writes about angels,both fallen and slackers, Rob Krouse. Here is a review of his first book: http://sagecoveredhills.blogspot.com/2009/10/mercury-falls-book-review.html

Patsy said...

I never planned to be a writer either. Actually I was 40 before I decided what I want to do when I grow up.

Chrys Fey said...

I think the best part is that he likes to kick ass. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

Hey, Sandra!

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks for the link, Sage!

Chrys Fey said...

I think that's awesome, though. :D

Anonymous said...

He is something else for sure, Alex.

Anonymous said...

If he wasn't an archangel, I'd say there were horns holding up that halo.

Anonymous said...

He would tell you that he is the best angel. Perfect and full of goodness. Then Gabe would punch him for being full of it. ;)

Thanks, MJ!

Aww, come on, Liz. Joe said he'd be your angel in shining armor whenever you need him.

Yeah, I like to take things and turn them on their heads. Try to do something different and fun.

Thanks, Liz. It was a fun story to write.

Exactly. I already have another story idea that twists demons in a new way.

Thank you, Beverly.

That's his goal, Christine. And annoying Gabe. It's like his hobbies. LOL

Thanks, Medeia. Yeah, you don't want to mess with Lucifer, but there's another baddie that the boys have to watch out for. Lucifer is trapped right now, so he can't do much to my boys.

Joe insists it is there. I doubtful too.

Thanks Denise. I love the covers to the series too. They are gorgeous.

Yes, Joe likes to be a joker, but he has a whole range from sensitive to bad ass.

Ha! You aren't the only person I've seen commenting on other blogs I've visited. Maybe I'm the one stalking you and this is my genius way of doing it. Cast suspicion on you. MUAHAHAHAHA

It's a sign, Joe says. He also says you can trust him on that. ;)

It might have been, but I'm the same. It's like, "Did I reply to comments here? Let's see..."

He's good to have at parties.
