Cheryl Morgan: The second novel, Aestival Tide, has one of these characters that has lived with me forever. Poor Ceryl Waxwing tries desperately, desperately hard to succeed and somehow manages to fail at everything she does.
Elizabeth Hand: Yes, my great role model.... I have always found flawed characters to be very attractive. And not just flawed characters, but serious fuck-ups; they are very appealing. Ceryl didn't make it out of there, did she?
Cheryl Morgan: No, she died.
