Character Interview: Zander Roth (Wicked Hunger by DelSheree Gladden)

On the outside, Zander Roth is the model of self-control and polite existence. No one else can see the daily struggle to control his hunger, the devastating secrets he hides, or the desires he fights to deny.
1. How did you first meet your writer?
After all the news coverage my family received last year, it wasn’t surprising when DelSheree showed up at one of my football practices wanting to talk. The story of my parents deaths was what drew her to my family, but she ended up with a different story entirely.  
2. Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?
I never wanted it to be, but no, it’s not surprising. It seems like no matter how hard I try to pretend everything is fine and normal, it’s impossible to hide all the cracks in that fantasy.
3. Tell us about your favorite scene in the book.
My sister, Van, would kill me for admitting this, but my favorite scene is the first night I sneak into Ivy’s room. Being near her without wanting to kill her every second was intoxicating. It was a moment that changed me. Whether for good or bad depends on who you talk to.
4. Did you have a hard time convincing your author to write any particular scenes for you?
There were times DelSheree wanted me to make different choices, smarter choices. It wasn’t that I wanted to argue with her. I knew what I should do. Ivy was too strong of a pull, though. Denying her anything was simply beyond me.
5. What do you like to do when you are not being actively read somewhere?
Get away from the world. There are fewer chances for me to hurt people if I just stay away from everyone and keep to myself. That’s not always possible, but I’ve learned to keep my distance…from everyone.
6. If you could rewrite anything in your book, what would it be?
That’s a hard question. The right answer would be to have walked away from Ivy that first day and never looked back. The real answer, though, would be to have seen through the lies earlier and seen the truth before people got hurt.
7. Tell the truth. What do you think of your fellow characters?
My sister Van is the most important person in my life. I underestimate her all too often, but she is one of the strongest and smartest people I know. I have a lot of respect for my grandma, but she doesn’t understand as much as she thinks she does. Explaining what I think and feel about Ivy is impossible. There is so much conflict inside of me when I think of her that I don’t even know where to begin.
8. Do have any secret aspirations that your author doesn’t know about?

For all the times I have criticized Van for trying to live a normal life, that is what I really want more than anything. I know being happy, really happy, isn’t something I will ever truly experience, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still want it.
9. If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?
I really don’t know. I’ve been living this life of careful restraint for so long, I’m not sure I would even know what to do if I was actually free.

10. What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they’ve known you for a while?

Everyone who meets me thinks I am polite, calm, restrained, boring even. It’s a mask I’ve tried very hard to create. No one really gets to know me. I won’t let them. Ivy was the only one who got close enough to see through my mask and I never should have let that happen.

11. What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?

Losing my parents left scars that will never heal. They weren’t the only people I lost, and each new loss only makes the wounds go deeper, harder to recover from. I’ve learned to stop opening myself to the possibility of being hurt.

12. Tell us about your best friend.

I’ll have to apply that term a bit loosely. Friends aren’t really my thing, but the closest I have to a real friend is Sam, one of my teammates on the football team. It wasn’t really my choice to become friends with Sam, he just always seemed to be at my side. He keeps my mind off darker thoughts, though, so I don’t mind him hanging around. Maybe one day he’ll actually become a real friend, but he’d probably be better off walking away.

13. What are you most afraid of?

Hurting someone. Van thinks I have so much control, but keeping my hunger in check is more of a struggle than she will ever understand.

14. What’s the best trait your author has given you? What’s the worst?

DelSheree and I would probably disagree on whether this would be the best or worst trait, but I see my determination as a good thing. It has kept me out of trouble, kept me focused. She would argue it kept me from backing off from Ivy and call it my biggest fault.

15. What do you like best about Ketchup? Least?

Ketchup is persistent. I’m not sure if that’s what I like most or least about him, but I can appreciate his refusal to never give up. I know he loves my sister, and despite the fact that I find him rather annoying 90% of the time, I’m glad he hasn’t walked away from Van yet.
16. How do you feel about your life right now? What, if anything, would you like to change?
My life has never been more uncertain. I thought I had the basics figured out. I can’t even begin to explain how wrong I was. If I could, I would have tried harder to find out what I suspected my grandma was hiding.
17. What aspect of your author’s writing style do you like best?
It’s honest. She doesn’t let me skate by when I make mistakes. She forces me to face them and deal with the consequences, no matter how unpleasant.
18. If your story were a movie, who would play you?
I’d have to go with either Channing Tatum or Kellan Lutz, although I’m not sure how either of them would look as a blonde.
19. Describe an average day in your life.
An average day in my life is hardly average. Controlling my hunger all day in place that is teeming with physical and emotional pain that teases my hunger relentlessly is not an easy thing. Football and other sports help me get through the days, but sometimes I have to turn to something less…socially acceptable.
20. Will you encourage your author to write a sequel?

Encourage might not be the right word. Do I want to have any more of my failures displayed for everyone to see? Not particularly. But do I want people to know the truth? Absolutely.

Character Interview: Dan and Mattie (The Ghost Files by Apryl Baker)

Hi, my name is Thelma and I will be your host.  We have an exciting show for you all today with lots of wonderful character interviews from so many different books. 

Let’s welcome Mattie Hathaway and Dan Richards to the show to start things off.  They are the stars of the Amazon best-selling novel, The Ghost Files written by Apryl Baker.  They are going to tell us a little about the book and the roles they play.

Mattie Hathaway

Officer Dan Richards:  Isn’t he just adorable?

Thelma:  Let’s start with Mattie.  Can you tell us a little about yourself Mattie?
Mattie:  Um, what if I don’t want to?
Dan:  Squirt, just the answer the questions and stop being a brat.
Mattie:  Make me. Thelma:  Easy question first.  What describes you in a nutshell,

Mattie:  Mutant penguin butterfly.  

Dan:  Oh, God, not that again.  

Mattie:  Shut up! There is nothing wrong with Pengy!  

Dan:  (shakes his head) Five minutes of my life I’ll never get back Googling that thing.

Mattie: It’s cute.  Here let me show you!

Thelma:  That is just adorable!
Thelma:  (chuckles) Let’s get back to the interview.  I understand your hesitancy to talk, Mattie.  It’s not everyday we meet a real live ghost whisperer.

Mattie: (glares at Thelma) Did we really have to go there first?
Dan:  Mattie is sensitive about her…er…gift.

Mattie:  (laughs outright) Dan has issues accepting the fact I can see ghosts.  He doesn’t really believe in things that go bump in the night.

Thelma:  Have you always been able to see ghosts?

Mattie: No it started when I was five.

Thelma:  Can you tell us a little bit about it?

Mattie:  (sighs loudly) Well, as you know I grew up in the foster care system.  When I was five, my mom went nuts and tried to kill me.  She stabbed me and when I woke up, I could see the little buggers.  

Thelma: Wow, that had to be scary.

Mattie:  (shrugs) No big deal.
Dan:  It is a big, deal.  That event shaped her into the person she is today. She’s tough as nails, more street savvy than the average sixteen year old girl, and she hides behind all the walls she put up.

Thelma:  It sounds like you know her pretty well, Dan.  I bet that wasn’t an easy task.

Dan:  You just don’t know the half of it.  Mattie is…well, she’s a handful.
(Mattie kicks Dan, causing him to glare at her.)
Mattie:  I am not a handful, I just don’t take crap from anyone.  When you grow up in the system, you learn to defend yourself.  It’s not my fault I’ve had to fight on more than one occasion over the years.  

Thelma:  So how did you two meet?

Dan:  I was one of the police officers who interviewed her when her foster sister, Sally, went missing.  No one else believed her when she said the girl didn’t run away, but I did.  There was just something about her frustration that rang true.  Then when she started spouting off about Sally being killed and needing to find her killer, I knew there was something going on she wasn’t telling me.  I just never expected it to be the bombshell she dropped on me.  Do you believe in ghosts, Officer Dan she asked me.  (Shakes his head) I still can’t believe it sometimes.

Thelma:  Was it hard to open up to him about your gift, Mattie?
Mattie:  I still blame my blabbing about it on the drugs. He met me in the hospital after I’d had a run in with Mirror Boy.  Up until then I didn’t know ghosts could hurt you physically, but boy was I ever wrong!  They can do some serious damage.  Anyway, I found myself just blurting things out that night and then he wouldn’t leave it alone.  He left me no choice but to tell him.
Dan:  (chuckles with amusement) I thought you said it was my eyes?
Mattie:  What?
Dan:  You talk in your sleep, Squirt.

Thelma:  Are you two…you know together?

Mattie:  No, we’re just good friends.  Dan has stayed with me a few nights in the hospital to keep me company is all.  He shouldn’t be repeating things he hears people mutter in their sleep, though.  It’s rude!

Thelma:  So back to Sally.  Dan believed you about her not running away?
Mattie:  Yeah. I knew she didn’t run away because I saw her ghost.  She had her hands bound behind her back and her mouth was taped over, but it was the bullet hole in her head that made realize something bad had happened to her.  I had to find out what happened to her.
Thelma:  It sounds like it was very important to you.

Mattie:  Yeah, foster kids take care of each other.  We depend on each other and she needed someone to find her, to let people know she wasn’t just another statistic.  I had to help her even if that meant talking to the ghosts for the first time in my life.  Usually, I just ignored them and they went away, but now they know I see them and I can’t get rid of them. They pop up all the time and the most unexpected moments.

Thelma:  Did you find out what happened to her?

Mattie:  (grimaces)  Yeah, a serial killer had murdered her and then I got taken captive by the killer.  It’s not a pleasant memory.
Dan: It isn’t for me either.  Worst three days of my life.  I went nuts trying to find her.
Mattie:  You?  You weren’t the one who was being tortured!

Thelma:  You were actually kidnapped and tortured by the killer?

Mattie: Yes, but I’d rather not talk about that.  It brings up too many painful memories.

Thelma: I understand completely.  It must be very hard.

(Mattie nods and looks off into space.  Dan takes her hand and squeezes it causing her to smile at him.)
Mattie:  Yeah, it is most days, but I finally have people who care about me and that helps a ton.

Thelma:  I take it Dan is one of those people?
(Mattie nods.)
Thelma:  So do you two think you’ll ever hook up in the future?  You’re so cute together.

Mattie:  I’m not sure.  He’s very important to me and I love him, I just don’t know if I love him like that or not.  I don’t do feelings usually.  I know everyone expects me to be this mature person with all this depth because I grew up in the system and I survived being taken captive and tortured, but I’m still just a sixteen year old girl.  I still have the same insecurities and doubts every other sixteen year old has and I get scared sometimes. I usually do stupid stuff when I get scared and lash out at people, but Dan stuck around.  He’s family no matter what else might happen in the future.

Thelma:  And you Dan, what do you think?  Will you and Mattie have a relationship in the future?

Dan:  I’m in for the long haul whether that means we are life-long friends or if it develops into something else.  Right now we’re friends.  I mean, I’m twenty and she’s only sixteen. She’s still jailbait.  But I plan on…

Thelma:  Shh, Dan, don’t give it away!  I have a feeling that we’ll be hearing more from you in the future, but for right now, let’s end it there and leave everyone hanging.

Mattie:  (laughs) I knew I liked you!

Thelma:  Thank you both so much for joining us today and sharing a few things!  And thanks to DelSheree Gladden for hosting our show on her blog!

Mattie:  (jumps up and waves her hand before the camera pans away) Wait, you didn’t let me tell you about the giveaway Apryl is hosting!

Thelma:  Oh, my I forgot!

Mattie:  I did promise I’d tell everyone about it, even though I’m mad at her for all the nonsense she put us through when she wrote the book.  She is trying to get 1000 likes on her Facebook author page so she’s hosting a giveaway.  Like her page for a chance to win a signed edition of my story, The Ghost Files.

Dan:  Uh, we forgot something else!  

Thelma:  (frowns at them and glances at her watch)  Go ahead, Dan.

 Dan:  First here’s a little bit about Apryl Baker, our creator who we usually love, but sometimes want to strangle for putting us in certain situations…  

Mattie:  Like Ollie the snake.

 Dan: (shudders) Yeah, Ollie.  Anyway here’s a bit about Apryl:

About the Author:  
  
So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama on you. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters. 
Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my family and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol. 
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories. 
PS: DO NOT GET IN MY WAY IF THERE IS A SALE ON AT TARGET – my home away from home!
Well you can catch up with Apryl at any of these places:

And don’t forget to check out her other books!

 

Thelma: Okay, thanks so much for reminding us of that, Mattie!  Thank you both and lets hear it from our sponsor, Writer’s Anonymous, for those who just have a problem with writing way too many stories at one time!

 (Dan and Mattie leave the studio arguing about who is going to drive home)

Character Interview: Tizzy McCalister, Donovan, Cooper (Laid Out and Candle Lit by Ann Everett)

CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH MARJORIE LOUISE “TIZZY” MCALISTER, DONOVAN, COOPER
FROM THE BOOKS
LAID OUT AND CANDLE LIT & YOU’RE BUSTING MY NUPTIALS
BY: ANN EVERETT
Can you tell my readers who you are? Do you have a nick name you’d prefer I call you?
My birth name is Marjorie Louise but everyone calls me Tizzy. My daddy gave me the name because he claims I could throw a pretty good “tizzy” from the day I was born.
Can you tell us a little about your family?
My mom, Pattiecake, along with my Aunt Sugarpie, co-own Sweet Thangs Bakery. Until recently, my daddy, Saint McAlister, owned the local bar. I have an older brother, Dan, who happens to be the county sheriff. Dan and I don’t always get a long, but lately, things have been going fairly well between us. My Nana McAlister is my only living grandparent. A few months ago, when Nana returned from a vacation in Hawaii, she brought Om, an old hippie with her. He grows “herbs” and she runs Peaceful Pooch, a pet grooming business.
I’m married to Ridge Cooper, a Texas Ranger and my second husband. Boone Donovan was my first, but he up and joined the service, then got killed. The best thing to come from that short marriage was Grace Ann, “Gracie”, my four-year-old daughter.
Where do you call home, and has that always been the same place?
Except for the time in spent in college, at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, I’ve always lived in Brownsboro, Texas. It’s just a spot in the road with one red light and one caution light. “Browntown”, as we like to call it, barely has a thousand people. Everybody knows everybody…and their business.
What is one strong memory that has stuck with you from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting?
When I was about seven, I discovered I could communicate with dead people. The reason it was so powerful and lasting is….I can communicate with dead people!
Tell us about your favorite scene in the book.
So far, there are two books about me and my gang. In the first one, LAID OUT AND CANDLE LIT, the cat fight is my favorite. An old classmate returns home for a visit and confronts me in my dad’s bar, and takes pleasure in telling me she slept with my first husband, Boone…before I did. Now, that’s just not right. What would you have done? Yeah. Exactly.
In the second book, YOU’RE BUSTING MY NUPTIALS, it’s the sex scene I have with Ridge during a stake-out.
 
What’s the worst thing that’s happened in your life? What did you learn from it?
Having a baby without the benefit of a father. I only found out I was pregnant after Boone died, so losing him, then going through the pregnancy was the most difficult time in my life. It taught me a lot of things…life is fleeting…family is the most important thing…real friends show up when you need them, and I’m stronger than I thought I could be.
What are you most afraid of?
Since I’m a mother, most of my fears concern my child. Keeping her safe and happy is my number one priority. That…and the fear of missing a shoe sale at Neiman’s!
What aspect of your author’s writing style do you like best?
The humor. She even writes funny sex scenes and I love that.
If your story were a movie, who would play you?
Since I’m a dark eyed, dark haired Texan, Nina Dobrev, would play me. Of course, she’d have to learn to speak Texas Twang!!
Describe an average day in your life.
I generally have some cuddle time with Ridge, then I get Gracie up. We have breakfast, then he’s off to catch bad guys and I’m off to work at my mother’s bakery…but not until Annie Mae, (Gracie’s babysitter) arrives. I really shouldn’t call Annie Mae a babysitter because she’s so much more. She kept me when I was a child. She’s like a member of our family and I love her dearly.
Once we’re done for the day, we generally just spend quiet time at home. Occasionally, we go out with friends or have them over. Sometimes we skinny dip in my parent’s pool…well, just Ridge and I…after Mom, Dad, and Gracie have gone to bed!!
Tell me about your best friend.
My very best friend in the whole world is Rayann Tatum, with Synola Harper coming in a close second. Rayann and I have known each other our entire lives. We went all through school together. We went to college together. We work together. Rayann’s married to a local policeman and also former classmate. She’s afraid of everything from flying to clowns. Dealing with her fears can sometimes be a challenge.
Synola and I have also known each other forever, but after high school, she moved away. Just recently, she returned to Brownsboro and now works part-time with Rayann and me. Totally opposite from Rayann, Synola isn’t afraid of anything. She’s not married, but has a love/hate relationship with my first cousin, Jinx Monroe.
What are you most ashamed of in your life?
Because my first husband Boone chose to join the service without much discussion with me, I’d already started to fall out of love with him by the time he left. For a long time, I had a lot of shame over that. It’s not that I didn’t want him to serve his country. I just wanted him to want to be with me more. I’m ashamed for being so selfish.
What’s the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?
My family and friends.  ‘Nuf said.
What’s the best trait your author has given you? What’s the worst?
Best and worst concerns my husbands. I love that she made me sassy when it comes to Ridge. Although we’re married, she lets me flirt with him. I love that part…and so does he!! What I don’t like, is having to deal with my dead husband. Lately, he’s not only been talking to Gracie, he’s appeared to her. I hate the mixed emotions my author gives me concerning that…or Boone in general.
What do you like best about Ridge? Least?
I love the way he sweet talks me…oh, and the way he kisses. The man has a dynamite kiss. It spins my brain around, sets it on fire, and sends all that heat straight to lady town!! Oh, I should probably mention how I love the way he is with Gracie. He loves her as if she belongs to him. The big tough Texas Ranger lets her polish his toenails…now, that’s a real man.
What I don’t like is him not wanting me to help with his cases when I have some really good ideas! He can be a stubborn man.
Will you encourage your author to write a sequel?
She already has, with a third book in the works. She swears it will be her last about me, but I’m trying to convince her to keep going! I have got her to consider writing a book where Synola and Jinx take center stage. I’ll keep at it and maybe get my way!

Character Interview: Zadie Stonebrook (My Sister’s Reaper by Dorothy Dreyer)

Today we’re chatting with Zadie Stonebrook from MY SISTER’S REAPER (written by Dorothy Dreyer). Let’s get to know her.
Hello, Zadie! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Are you sure you want to know? I’d hate to scare you off. Well, I’ll start with the not-so-scary stuff: I’m sixteen. I have an older sister named Mara. My mom’s never around, but I don’t want to say why. My dad’s a workaholic. And, well, yeah, the rest is a little hard to believe. Like the strange things I can make happen. And the dark shadows following me around.

And do you have a boyfriend?
Well, there’s this guy at school. His name is Gavin. He’s not exactly my boyfriend, but I do like him a lot.
I heard you told him you could do something magical.

That was a total accident! I didn’t mean to let it slip. But I got so lost in Gavin’s gorgeous blue eyes and the slight upward curve of his lips. And maybe a part of me thought he might understand. I should really learn to be more careful.

What’s this I hear about a Reaper’s Rite. What is it?

I don’t really know, exactly. It has something to do with a pact made between a Reaper and a witch. I have no idea how I got involved … except it might have something to do with bringing my sister back to life.
What!? How did you do that?
Honestly, I didn’t even know what I was doing. At first I was just winging it, going along with something my best friend Naomi started. But then—I don’t know—something came over me. Something I couldn’t control. Something that shook in the core of my body and took over my actions. I hope I didn’t do something I wasn’t supposed to.

It must have been weird seeing your sister, Mara, after you brought her back to life. Were the two of you close? Before she died, I mean.

We were close when we were little, but then she became popular and got a boyfriend and stuff. We kind of drifted apart after that. Then she had her accident and I thought I’d lost her forever. But now that she’s back … well, I can’t even say that it’s her. She’s so strange now. It’s like it’s someone else in there behind those vacant eyes.

Oh my, look at the time. Well, I gotta go. Good luck with all you … problems. Hope to see you around. *speedily exits*
