Hello and welcome to my blog for another round of Meet the Characters! Today I am featuring a guest blogger who has graciously agreed to let me do a character interview, which is my favorite kind of interview. Join me in welcoming author, Chrys Fey, and her characters from Seismic Crimes. It’s a fantastic Romantic-Suspense with wonderful characters so without further ado here is the interview with Beth Kennedy.
How did you first meet your writer?
“I met Chrys just before a category 5 hurricane hit Florida. She was sweet, but I thought she was odd, too. I mean, what kind of person visits you before a hurricane, offers to be invisible to write your story, and then does NOTHING when someone tries to kill you? She said I had a story she wanted to tell. I didn’t believe her, but it turns out the girl is psychic because I definitely had a story to tell. One of romance and suspense.”
What is your least favorite characteristic your writer has attributed to you?
“My impatience. Gosh, it’s a pain. If I have to wait for something or someone, I could pull out my hair. Good thing Donovan is punctual. But impatience can arise from other situations, such as being stuck in a police station for days because of flood waters. Don’t even get me started on that.”
What do you do for a living?
“I am a self-defense instructor. I teach men, women, and children how to defend themselves in dangerous situations. My skill has come in handy several times.”
What is your greatest fear?
What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy Sunday?
“Challenge Donovan to a game of poker. We like to bet candy, and I still haven’t forgiven him for taking all of my Starbursts.”
What turns you on?
“The short answer: Donovan. Everything about him turns me on. His violet eyes, intense stare, athletic body, tan skin, deep voice, sexy grin. *swallows* Yup, Donovan.”
What other profession would you like to try?
“I’ve been undercover to catch drug-dealers and killers, and I’ve gone across the United States to hunt down a murderer, so I think I’d like to try being a bounty hunter. As long as Donovan is my partner. We’d make a great team. We’ve already helped the police to catch a few criminals already.”
Would you ever use a voodoo doll to hurt anyone?
“If I believed it would work, I’d hurt Buck, a dirty cop who killed Donovan’s brother. I’d attack that voodoo with pins, scissors, knives, and matches.”
If you knew a zombie apocalypse was coming in one week, what would you do?
“Well, if the zombie apocalypse would only impact the United States, I would pack a bag of clothes, withdrawal all of my money, and hop on a plane with Donovan to the Keeling Islands in Australia. We might be safe there. If the outbreak does reach Australia, we’d get a boat and go as far out as we can, drop anchor, and stay there until we need to head back for more supplies.”
Have you ever thought about getting a tattoo, what would it be and where?
“I think I’d get something that is a testament to my strength. Maybe a lotus flower on my abdomen, close to my hip. Those beautiful flowers rise from dark places. They emerge right from the mud, and they don’t stop until they reach the surface. I’ve done a lot of that.”
“An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.
Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.
When a tip reveals the killer’s location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?”
“The moment she realized Buck was shooting under the cars to hit her, the tire she hid behind blew. She squeezed her eyes shut as she tried to make herself smaller by pressing her body into the SUV. The Morse code of bullets hitting metal started up again. She could’ve sworn she felt the SUV shaking with the continuous beat of bullets slamming into it, except the shaking was below her feet. It started gentle but as soon as she noticed, it became violent.
She fell backward and struggled to get back up. Her body bounced up and down and rolled from side to side simultaneously, which told her the quake’s epicenter was close. The origin could’ve been beneath the hotel for all she knew. A light came crashing down from the ceiling and slammed into the concrete floor with such power it exploded into a trillion stars. Glass shot out in all directions like the Big Bang. Beth screamed and covered her face with her hands as tiny pieces of glass bit the skin on her arms.
She fought onto her hands and knees and hugged the tire to keep from falling over again. The intensity of the tremors grew. The concrete below her feet didn’t feel solid anymore. It felt alive, as if two gigantic gophers burrowed through the earth. The truck behind her slid with the vicious shock waves and bumped into her, pushing her roughly into the tire. She let out a cry of panic.”
