Em asked Josephine Angelini:

I have recently seen The Crucible in the theatre (starring Richard Armitage) and it was an incredible performance. What about the play inspired you and which characters do you find most intriguing? Also I adored the Awakening trilogy - a superbly addicting series!

Josephine Angelini Thank you for the beautiful compliment! The play inspired me in many ways. What I found intriguing is that some of the good characters admit to being witches in order to save themselves, but the hero--Proctor--refuses. He would rather die than admit to a lie. I use that character trait for Lily.
