Here’s the next interview from my upcoming suspense novel.  This time, we delve into the mind of our villain, Mel:

Mel (villain of the novel “When Love Won’t Die”)

1.    Do your consider yourself a villain?

A villain?  You mean a bad guy?  No way!

2.    Do you believe in happy endings?

I try to but it hasn’t been easy.  Maybe this time?

3.    What are your deepest fears?

I’m not afraid of anything!  I want certain things that I can’t have right now, but I’m not afraid.  I WILL get what I want!

4.    Do you consider yourself an honest person?

I don’t lie!  I can’t help it if nobody wants to hear the truth.

5.    Are you a forgiving person?

No.  Why should I be?  Of course there is one exception and that’s my Angel.  I could never turn away from my Angel.

6.    Would your life make an interesting movie?

I don’t care about crap like that.  Movies are a stupid waste of time.  Nobody wants to see a movie when it’s filled with the truth of the real world.  Hollywood wouldn’t make any money on the truth.

7.    How do you feel about children?

Children just get in the way. 

8.    If you could be someone else, who would you be?

I don’t fantasize about stuff like that.  What’s the point?  I am who I am so I’d better learn to live with it.

9.    If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Somewhere private and secluded with just me and my Angel.

10.   What do you think your future holds?

That’s nobody’s business but mine but I know I’m going to make sure I get what I want, no matter what I have to do to get it.

I got this great idea from some of the authors at my new publishing company and have decided to post interviews of my first suspense novel’s characters in the hopes that you will want to read more about them by buying the book when it comes out.

ELEANOR  (heroine of novel “When Love Won’t Die”)

1.    What made you start writing suspense novels?

Believe it or not, I never really thought I would become a writer as my career.  I initially used writing, in journal form, to deal with some circumstances in my past that continued to haunt me years later.  Who knew I’d get three best sellers out of random journal diddling.

2.    Do you believe in happy endings?

I think a happy ending is all in the perspective of who is looking at it and how it affects them.  I don’t know if any ending is ever completely happy, but when circumstances that affect me cause me to be happy, I would definitely call that a happy ending.

3.    What are your deepest fears?

I have one fear, but other fears stem from that.  My deepest fear is that my past will destroy my present.

4.    Do you consider yourself an honest person?

I do for the most part, however, I know a few people who would disagree with me.  I think, on a rare occasion, sometimes the truth just isn’t appropriate.  But be prepared for the fallout if a lie ever catches up with you.

5.    Are you a forgiving person?

I try to be, but unfortunately there is one person I truly don’t think I can ever forgive.  I wish that person didn’t have that power over me.

6.    Would your life make an interesting movie?

Yes, I’m afraid it would, but that doesn’t make me happy.

7.    How do you feel about children?

If I had one regret in my life it would be that I was never able to have any children.  I guess it wasn’t in the plan and I don’t know why.  My husband and I did try several times but we kept having miscarriages.  I don’t like to think about the emptiness that I feel when I think about not being able to have any children.

8.    If you could be someone else, who would you be?

I was someone else a long time ago.  I can’t imagine being anyone but who I am now…Eleanor Marie Bennett.

9.    If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I’m not big on world travel.  As long as I’m surrounded by family and friends, that’s home to me and that’s where I want to be.

10.   What do you think your future holds?

In all honesty I hope my future is quiet, calm and uneventful (laughs).  No really, I mean that wholeheartedly.  I’ve had more than enough (clears throat) excitement, if that’s what you want to call it, to last me ten lifetimes.
