I've got a nice holiday treat for you all. My personal interview with my latest fictional Hero--Max Jensen. Max appears in The Drakhom Taboo III, available at eXtasy books. He's not your regular guy, because Max is a Drakhom: half human-half vampire, and exotically virile. Needless to say, I'm head over heels in love with all the Drakhom men.
CJ: Max, thank you for giving me this wonderful opportunity to share a little bit of you with readers.
MJ: It's my pleasure, Celia.
CJ: Tell me about your life in the exciting city of Manhattan.
MJ: Well, I own a few successful restaurants which demand my attention and keep me busy. It's a revolving door of interesting challenges and all kinds of people. I'm pretty tight with my family and friends and I attend several cultural events each year.
CJ: Surely, a man with your looks must have a full dating calendar, lol.
MJ: Lately, I only make time for one woman.
CJ: Would that be Ellen Sanders?
MJ: Of course. Although, I'm afraid I've scared her off a bit.
CJ: How so?
MJ: Ellen has been hurt in the past. She shuns marriage and any serious relationships to avoid heartache. Thing is, she knows I'm looking for a wife. I don't want an affair. We share an incredible connection and I couldn't fathom not spending the rest of my life with her.
CJ: Are you planning on changing her mind?
MJ: I'm determined to change her mind. She's pretty adamant--even turned me down once--but she's left an opening.
MJ: Yes. She told me she's open to casual dating.
CJ: But that goes against the grain for you.
MJ: It does, but it's the only chance I have of proving that I'm the man for her. Show her that we belong together. I don't want to lose her.
CJ: So, you're going to propose an affair.
MJ: Exactly. The physical chemistry is off the walls. I doubt she'll be able to resist.
CJ: You sound sure of yourself. Aren't you risking getting hurt--I mean--what if she ends the affair for fear of getting attached?
MJ: It's a risk I'm willing to take. As you know, I can be pretty determined and convincing. Ellen belongs with me...she just doesn't know it yet.
CJ: Well, I praise your determination and courage, Max. It takes a strong man to pursue a woman like Ellen with all his heart. I do hope it works out for you both.
MJ: It will. I've never wanted anything more in my life.
CJ: I was planning on asking you what you'd like for Christmas, but I have a feeling I know, lol. Thank you for your time, my dearest Max.
