Character Interview: Ian Mallory

As I mentioned in a previous post, I will be interviewing a character from my Final Formula series here on my website. I found it difficult to select a character (I love them all), so I asked fans to make the selection for me.

But the man is skilled with a needle when he can’t find what I’m looking for. I would judge him to be as talented as his ancestor. Becca: You knew his ancestor? Ian: Ironically—or not—he is the descendant of the tailor I used to frequent when I was alive. Becca: How is that not ironic? Ian: Addie suggested that there is a magical connection.
