Hello everyone, my name is Jamallah Bergman and I am the author of Book 3 in the Ciprianos of Kellington series ‘Gianni’.
I really love this story because of the fact that this story is the first time I’ve ever written one with a child deeply involved.
So I decided to do something a bit different as far as my interview today and I thought that I would do the interview with the darling little girl who basically captured Gianni’s heart as well as the other Cipriano men…..Saoirse Cormier.
Me: I want to thank you for coming and doing an interview with me today.
Saoirse: Thank you for having me. My mom told me that you had asked for me. (She is smoothing out her pink floral dress while her feet are dangling from the couch)
Me: I thought that it would be nice to have some ice tea while we talked.
Saoirse: I like tea. (I pour her a small cup and pour myself a glass)
Me: Now I want to ask you how do you like living in Kellington?
Saoirse (taking a sip of tea): I really like it here, everybody has been so nice to my mom and me especially Gianni. He’s so much fun and he’s very handsome. Plus I love his family, they’ve been so helpful to my mom since we moved here.
Me: What is it you like about Gianni so much?
Saoirse: He’s fun to be around. He’s also very kind and sweet plus he’s got the most amazing eyes I’ve ever seen. I am always smiling when I look at them. Both most of all he makes my mom very happy.
Me: A little birdie told me that you had been a match maker for your mom and Gianni.
Saoirse (stares at me blankly): I don’t know what you mean.
Me: Someone told me that it was you who got your mom and Gianni together. Is that true?
Saoirse (giggles): I’ll never tell
Me: That’s fine. Well I also heard that you are a very smart girl for someone who is only eight years old and that you are really good in math.
Saoirse: Yes I love Math. Do you like Math too?
Me: Well I have to admit I’ve never been good in Math when I was growing up.
Saoirse: Do you like plums?
Me: Well yeah, I do love plums. I heard they are your favorites along with Gianni.
Saoirse (sits up on her knees in the couch, leaning over the arm of the couch towards me): I really like the tart that his mom makes, you should try it.
Me: I will have to do that when I get the chance to go by the restaurant.
Saoirse: We can go and get some after the interview if you like?
Me: I’d like that a lot. So what do you think about Gianni’s family and his brothers?
Saoirse (thinking): Umm, well, I like them all. Renzo was so much fun and so was Jaslyn his girlfriend, she’s very sweet. I like it when he picks me up sometimes and gives me hugs. Simone he likes to tell jokes and sometimes he makes silly voices. I end up laughing so hard I start snorting. Federico, he’s been teaching me how to plant flowers and stuff. I told him I wanted to make a small garden and he’s been showing me how to make one with soda bottles. I really like Mrs. Cipriano though, she reminds me of my grandma in Ireland, that’s where I was born you know.
Me: I know that.
Saoirse: Well she always tells me stories about when she was living in Italy and how Gianni and his brothers was when they were my age. We sometimes sit in her garden and drink tea or walk around and pull out weeds or cut flowers. I’m just glad to have them in our lives because when we moved here to Kellington, we didn’t know how we were going to survive but thanks to me finding Gianni, our lives are going to be real good.
Me (smiling): Well Saoirse I want to thank you for doing this interview with me and I want to thank your mom for letting me do it with you.
Saoirse: Good…..so can we go and get some plums now?
Me (laughing): Of course we can
