Because Authors have crushes too!
1. What attracts you to Josh and why is he your character crush?
He’s my character crush today because he’s the
Boy Next Door, the guy you just want to hang out with, who makes you feel
comfortable, sets you at ease, and makes you laugh. He’s also ready for
adventure. Just say the word!
2. Does Josh believe
He does believe in love, but at the start of the story has
sworn it off because he’s been burned by love, well, by a woman who he thought
was perfect for him.
3. What actor or actress
Josh looks a little like, ahem, James Magnussen, an Olympic
swimmer from Australia, but with longer hair. Oh yeah. (See picture.)
4. Use the first three words
that pop into your mind to describe Josh?
Sexy. Adventurous. Faithful.
5. Is there anything that can
get a smile out of Josh no matter how sad or upset he is?
Oh yes. Indeed. Josh loves his dog Sally, a Bernese Mountain
dog, and even talks to him on the phone from Paris. Sadly, he couldn’t take his
dog on his business trip. Sally is being taken care of by Josh’s best friend
and roommate, Liam MacAuley,
from my previous paranormal romance novella, A Christmas Fling.
6. Does Josh believe
in ghosts, the occult, aliens, or the supernatural? If so, why?
Josh is open to magic and the supernatural, so when magical
events start happening to him in Paris he’s accepting, way more than Sarah, the
woman caught up in the magical chaotic events. Josh is open to magic because in
his youth, he had a few visitations from his parents, who had passed on when he
was a teen.
7. What is the worst romantic
relationship Josh has ever had?
He thought he’d found the love of his life, but then she
practically stole his business from him. That’s why he isn’t so eager to fall
in love again so soon when he meets Sarah in Paris.
