Character Crush – Because Authors have crushes too!
What is your character’s life mantra?
If Dash had a mantra, it would go something like, “There’s nowhere to go but up.” He’s had enough downs in his life that he feels he can’t get any lower.
If your character could be anywhere in the world, where would they go?
As an actor, he’s traveled quite a bit, but there’s nowhere he’d rather be than at work, in front of a camera, performing.
What challenges did your character have growing up?
Dash was a child actor, on a TV show that gained a cult following. He wasn’t meant to be a regular cast member, but his popularity grew so that he became one of the leads. Naturally it put a few noses out of joint, particularly those of the parents of the other kids, so it was a challenge for him to just do his job and help keep the peace at work. Luckily he met Gabby on the show and that helped.
What is your character’s guiltiest pleasure?
A chili dog from Pink’s in Hollywood.
Does your character believe in revenge? If so, how did they get it?
You would think Dash is entitled to seek revenge for what Gabby’s parents did to him, but in truth he would prefer to go on with his life. He only wants to revive his career and hopefully his romance with Gabby.
Is there anything that can get a smile out of your character no matter how sad or upset he is?
Dash has a good sense of humor, and can laugh at the some of the cheesier films he’s done. We’re talking MST3K material.
What is your character’s least favorite holiday or celebration and why?
His first wedding anniversary is always a hard day for him to get through. He’d rather not mention it at all.

About the Book
In this business, it gets hot under the spotlight…
Once a teen idol, Gabby Randall now spends her time behind the camera. With her show Danse Macabre scripted and a greenlit for a popular streaming site, she has everything she wants…except her star. Deadlines are looming and she’s desperate to cast the role of a modern-day, motorcycle-riding Grim Reaper. She never thought she’d end up hiring her former co-star, TV’s most beloved geek…and her ex-husband.
Until the day he dies, people will remember Dash Gregory as Freddie ‘Grody’ Grodin, the token geek friend of the cool kids at Wondermancer High. After years of casting agents overlooking him for plum roles, Dash wants to show Hollywood he’s more than a one-note player. He’s ready to break the vicious typecasting cycle, and he’s set his sights on the lead role in a sexy new series too hot for network TV.
When the director yells “Cut!” the star wants to keep up the action behind the scenes. Are Dash and Gabby willing to make ratings history again?
