CHARACTER BLOWOUT. Abigail's Interview. Faith V. Smith's, IMMORTAL JUSTICE.
Welcome! You’ve arrived in time to enjoy A Writer’s Mind, End of Week Character Blowout. New to this blog? If so, here’s the scoop. The Character Blowout is much like The Newlywed Game blog style! On Thursday I interview the heroine from some of your favorite stories. On Friday, the hero. The questions asked of each are similar so it’s always fun to see how well they know one another.
Today it’s my pleasure to welcome over Abigail Dupree from Faith V. Smith, IMMORTAL JUSTICE. Before I get started with the interview let’s learn a bit more about this novel…
Over a millennium ago, Highlander Darach MacRath was murdered. Resurrected by the Archangel Michael to fight demons as an Immortal Executioner, Darach now opposes all evil in the mortal world. His life is solitary—but when he rescues a young woman who not only sees demons but battles them herself, he is captivated by her courage and beauty. Abigail Dupree is not looking for love. But when a tall, dark demon fighter with a sexy brogue intervenes in her hunt, she’s fascinated. She should run away—but then his gentle yet sizzling touch ensnares her heart. When a demon from Darach’s past sets his sights on Abby, Darach will do anything to protect her—but for Abby, losing him would be worse than death. Together they must fight the demons of past and present, and the possibility that evil could destroy them both, before they find the gift of love.
SKY: Tell us a little bit about you.
ABIGAIL: I’m nothing special. I just have visions and can spot a demon when he hides inside a human body. Not looking for love at all.
SKY: Remembering the moment you first laid eyes on Darach, what thoughts come to mind?
ABIGAIL: Oh yes, I remember. I was fighting a demon and the Highlander showed up. Tall, dark, and eyes that went from cobalt to silver in two seconds flat. Darach MacRath thought he could wipe my mind clean of seeing him, but he couldn’t.
SKY: He has one trait you adored from the start. What is it? You know without doubt he appreciates one of your traits. Share what you think that is.
ABIGAIL: His absurd way of thinking he needs to protect me all the time. It’s ridiculous, although, sweet. Oh, and let’s not forget his way of making clothes disappear without moving a muscle. So handy! I think my darling Darach would consider my heart an attribute, although he thinks it gets me into way too much trouble.
SKY: He has one trait you’d change if you could. What is it? Oh yeah, there’s a trait you know he’d change about you…fess up!
ABIGAIL: The one trait I would change is his stubbornness. He thinks that all he has to do is go for it, and nothing will happen to him. I fear for his life at times when he’s fighting demons. My trait he would change would be my inability to listen to him being bossy. I don’t like being told what to do.
SKY: Love is in the air. What is the single most romantic thing he’s done for you?
ABIGAIL: Oh there are so many things, but finding my grandparents rings that were pawned to send me to college back in the day and returning them to me. Also giving me roses and having this not sure if she’ll like them look on his face.
SKY: He has a feature that draws your eye every time. Care to share? His eye constantly roams to a particular part of your person. Tell, tell!
ABIGAIL: I love every part of the man, even his stubborn brain, but his eyes. They go from black to silver when he is emotional or sexually turned on. I love it. It’s like knowing a bit a head of time how he’s affected. I think he probably touches on my eyes, they remind him of a loch back in medieval Scotland, but then his hands go for other parts…lol.
SKY: How do you think Darach would answer the following… Our favorite thing to do together is…?
ABIGAIL: Oh by far, making love, but he has romantic moments as well. He likes to walk places, and when I’m with him, he takes my hand, and tucks me close to his side.
SKY: You and Darach just don’t see eye to eye on what issue?
ABIGAIL: My penchant for knowing where demons are and wanting to help him fight them. Darach is just a throwback, but of course, he’s over a thousand years old, give or take a decade or two.
SKY: He said one thing to you that you’ll never forget. What was it?
ABIGAIL: I love you. What else is there?
SKY: I totally agree! Thanks so much for joining us, Abigail! It was a pleasure.

Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
