So the results are in and the first interview is going to be with characters from A Wolf’s Duty. So this week it’s Alex who is in control and with that I’m going to introduce you and bow out of the picture.
JTA: Alex, say hi to the lovely people.
JTA: Well I’ve left you some questions, make sure you answer them all.
Alex: Wait, you’re leaving?
JTA: Of course. I said I was letting you guys be in control for a while. Trust me you’ll be fine.
Alex: You can’t really expect me to talk to all these people!
JTA: Like I said you’ll be fine. *whispers conspiratorially against her ear* No one out there is going to hurt you. Fred is gone and you’re strong, you’ve proved that time and time again.
Alex: *Nods slowly*
JTA: Well I’m off! I’ve kept the questions simple but people might ask you more as the week goes on. Good luck Alex!
Alex:…..So I guess it’s just you, me and this list of questions. I’ll just get started and then you can be on your way. I don’t understand why she didn’t start with Tobias, he’s got much more experience at this than I do. If you haven’t guessed already I’m not really the biggest fan of public speaking but there is a reason for that. Let me just crack on with the questions okay?
What’s your biggest fear?
My father. I know he’s dead now, Tobias and Ryan made sure of that but there are still some nights I wake up and think that he’s standing over me ready to hurt me and Tobias. It’s silly I know, Tobias is much stronger than Fred and he’s more than capable of protecting us both but it’s hard to make my brain remember that when I’m asleep. I spent so many years afraid I think it’s going to be a very long time before I don’t have those kinds of nightmare anymore.
If someone dared you to jump out of a plane (with a parachute) would you?
Are you insane? I could never do that! Maybe I need to rethink my fears. That sounds almost as scary as Fred. I know I’d heal if something went wrong but that’s the point, what if something went wrong? Besides, I’d love for someone to try to persuade Tobias that was safe. He’d do everything in his power to not let me go.
What is your earliest memory?
It isn’t pretty….I’m not sure I want to talk about it…..But I did promise….The first thing I can remember is my mum reading to me and Fred ruining it. We were reading ‘The Practical Princess’ which by the way is a must read for any young girl. It’s a series of short fairytales where the heroines and heroes don’t just wait for something to save them from mortal peril they sort out the problem themselves. I just wish I’d remembered it more when mum was gone. Anyway, we were reading the book and then Fred comes in….He was so drunk that night….He tore the book away from mum and dragged her out of the room by her hair. I tried to protect her but I was so young. I can still hear her screams.
What is your most prized possession?
That’s easy, I’ve only got one picture of my mum. I managed to hide it from Fred after she died. My mum is an inspiration to me and when I thought I’d never see her picture again….believe me I wasn’t happy about it. I just keep thinking that one day I’m going to forget what she looks like. I never want that to happen. After the picture, I’d have to say the locket Tobias gave to me is pretty special. I never take it off, I always want to keep him close to my heart.
What is your ideal romance?
Before Tobias I never thought about romance, I didn’t have the time. I just wanted to survive the week….But now….Tobias is everything I could ever wish for. He can be a little – well a lot – overprotective at times but I know it’s because he wants to keep me safe. I think he’d lock me away in a tower if he could get away with it. He thinks the whole world is out to get me and he’s the only thing that can protect me from it. If I didn’t love him so much it would drive me crazy but I know he means well. If he’s all I can ever have then it would be enough.
Alex: Thank God! The questions are over.
JTA: So Alex, how did it go?
Alex: You’re back?
JTA: Tobias made me come in and check on you. That man has issues. I told him you were fine but he wouldn’t hear of you being left alone. How do you deal with him?
Alex: *a secret smile comes to her lips* I have my ways.
JTA: But you managed all the questions right?
Alex: There weren’t nearly as many as I thought there was going to be so I did fine.
JTA: That’s because I want others to ask you questions. Mine are just a starter. You’re here all week to answer their questions.
JTA: But the more important thing is this! Your book, A Wolf’s Duty, as well as all the others I’ve written are involved in a giveaway this week.
Alex: What does that mean?
JTA: It means there are copies of books up for grabs all week! All people need to do is enter.
JTA: Yup so if you’re up for learning more about Alex and that overbearing Tobias, head over to this page and get stuck in. Don’t forget to ask Alex any questions you might have, she’s here all week!
