Hey guys, I’m super excited to be a part of the blog fest this year. I struggled with what to write about, but I decided I’d interview one of the character in my new Star Lake series. There is one book out now – When Love Returns. I am currently working on a novella-Once Upon a Star, that will be in a Christmas anthology and another book for early next year.
Me: So Presley, what was the hardest part of moving back to Star Lake?
Presley: Probably the thought of seeing Brandon again. I should have told him how I felt in high school, but by the time I got the courage, he had begun seeing Morgan. I heard they married and had a child, and while he doesn’t live here, I’m afraid my feelings would still be strong if I saw him again.
Me: Is that why you went to Paris for a time?
Presley: Yeah, I couldn’t stay. I figured if he was going away, I could too. I studied at Le Cordon Bleu. It was an amazing experience, but my life wasn’t there.
Me: What made you decide to come back?
Presley: A romance gone wrong. I guess I don’t have very good luck with men.
Me: Have you found any candidates here since you’ve been back.
Presley: (snickers) No. Bert is about the only single guy in town right now, and just between you and I, I’m not surprised.
Me: What do you mean?
Presley: The man once opened a chicken petting farm and got so attached to one of them that he carried it around in a bag. I mean, I believe there’s someone for everyone, but I don’t think he’s my someone.
Me: Tell us about life in the small town.
Presley: Sometimes it’s hard. There isn’t as much to do as in the city, but we have town festivals quite often and we have a beautiful lake. Plus, there’s always the drama between Barnard and Max.
Me: Yeah, how did that drama start anyway?
Presley: No one really knows. I like Max but he’s surly, and Barnard is … well, he’s kind of like Bert, an acquired taste.
Me: Speaking of taste, tell us what you do in Star Lake?
Presley: I opened a bakery. We needed something. Max makes a good hamburger, but dessert was never his thing.
Me: Thanks for stopping by Presley. Be sure to check out When Love Returns for more of the lovable characters.
