Character This or That: Joshua from The Other Life (Susanne Winnacker)

Character This or That: Joshua

Cheetos or Doritos?
Both! Food is hard to come by, so you can’t be picky!

Harry Potter: Books or Movies?
Hm. Joshua doesn’t allow himself to get distracted often but if he had to choose it would be movies. Joshua’s more of the visual type.

Small towns or Big Cities?
Small towns because they are safer. They aren’t as infested with Weepers.

TV or music?
Music. It isn’t as distracting. You still have your eyes to look for Weepers. But he wouldn’t turn up the volume too much so he could still hear suspicious noises!

Snow or rain?
Rain is safer. Snow means cold and that could mean freezing to death.

Math or English?
Joshua isn’t really the studious type. He’s very physical, and math and English are the least of his worries. He hasn’t been in school for years.

Sunrise or Sunset?
Sunrise. Darkness equals danger in Joshua’s and Sherry’s world, so every new sunrise means they survived another night!

Preferred method to kill Weepers?
Shoot them - Joshua always carries a gun with him. But actually you can kill Weepers the same way you kill humans.

Dogs or cats?
Joshua prefers dogs because they aren’t as unpredictable but he can’t really have a pet since that would mean another mouth to feed!

Skateboard or bike?
He’d choose the faster option, so I guess bike.

Football or Soccer?
Joshua hasn’t had the time to think about sports for years but he loved football in his other life.

About The Other Life

3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all?
