K is for Kelsey

Kelsey is the heroine in Debra's The Vampire and the Vixen.

To let you get to know her a little bit, here's an interview with her from 2 Wild Women Authors back in October of 2013 when the book was first released.

Tell us a bit about The Vampire and the Vixen. I'm a librarian, and I had this great idea to hold a Halloween fundraiser where everyone dressed up as their favorite literary character. At the party, I kind of lost my head and kissed a mysterious stranger dressed as Dracula out on the balcony. Only afterwards did I find out he was my new boss. For most of the story I'm dealing with the consequences of my impulsive action that night. And I also have a sneaking suspicion my sexy new boss is a real vampire.

What did you think the first time you saw Rafe, the hero-boss-maybe vampire? I thought he was the sexiest man I'd ever seen.

And your second thought? What would his mouth feel like on mine?

Did you think it was love at first sight? More like lust at first sight in the beginning.

What do you like most about Rafe? Would you think I'm lying if I said everything? *lol* His dedication, his work ethic, his kindness, his leadership, his easy manner with children...

Always a winning combination in our book! How would you describe him? It's going to sound totally clich├ęd, but tall, dark, and handsome comes to mind. Rafe has soulful brown eyes, sinfully black hair, a voice as smooth and rich as chocolate covered caramel, and when he holds me I can snuggle my head against his shoulder. *sigh*

Ahhh, but how would he describe you? He thinks I worry too much about what other people think. He's probably right.

What made you choose library science as a profession? Libraries are magical places. Filled with so many books it boggles the mind. There's no end to the things you can discover and experience when you immerse yourself in a book. I wanted to be able to share that with others. To encourage and enable them to find their own joy in books.

What is your biggest fear, Kelsey? That people will think I got my promotion because I made out with the boss.

How do you relax? I curl up with a good book, of course! *grin*

Who is your favorite fictional character and why? That's not fair. It's too hard to choose! Which is why for Halloween I dressed as the heroine from the cover of a romance novel. Not a specific one...just all of them in general. Rafe said I played the vixen very well. *wink*

What is the best piece of advice you ever received? My best friend, Tracy, told me I should stop worrying about trivial things like what people were thinking about my promotion and focus on what’s really important, like unearthing the truth about Rafe.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!
