Hey hey romance junkies! Have I got an otherworldly, southern treat for you in this week’s What A Character Chat. Say hello to Madison Lee from The Southern Werewolf Chronicles by J. Morgan. Hiya Madison!
Madison: First off, let me say thank you for asking me by today. It’s not everyday little old Madison Lee gets invited to be interviewed by such a prestigious online publication. Well, not since I won Miss Louisiana back in… Unless we’re off the record, you don’t need to know a specific date, and I’m not giving you one. Oh, before I forget. Beulah had me bring one of her Blue Ribbon blackberry cobblers. Never show up empty handed she always says.
Mac: Blackberry cobbler? Yumm!!! Bless Beulah’s heart. While I take just a little taste, would you give us a taste of (book) Twitter fashion?
Madison: As a true Southern Deb, I don’t Twitter. People are all up in my business without help from the internet. Thank you very much.
Mac: LOL Amen sister. Okay, how about this. What do you consider your biggest strength?
Madison: Ask anyone, and they’ll tell you my biggest strength is my keen fashion sense. It has gotten me out of more jams than I care to think about. Though, it didn’t do squat when I became a freaking werewolf. Who would have thought someone with my impeccable breeding would catch a Paranormal STD from a one night stand. They never shop that factoid around in travel brochures when you’re looking for the perfect European getaway. Then again, going to Transylvania might not have been my best idea ever.
Mac: Oh, hell. *snort* Sorry, I don’t mean to snicker but I’m trying to picture a former Miss Louisiana discovering she’s caught a Paranormal STD. But hey, at least you’re a well-dressed werewolf. *clears throat* So, biggest weakness?
Madison: I don’t have weaknesses. I have less perfect perfections. Though if I had to admit to something, I guess I’d have to say… Nope, got nothing.
Mac: *grin* A woman after my own heart. Never admit to something that isn’t true. Now, the romance genre is often heavy with heartbreaking conflict but what makes you laugh?
Madison: I try not to laugh. It gives you those little wrinkles in the corners of your eyes, and those jowly things. But, I do find those cat things on a Facebook amusing. I’d just love to howl at the moon and chase them up a tree. Oops. Forget I said that. The Ladies League might not approve. They adore cats for some reason.
Mac: *Pushes at the little wrinkles at the corner of her eyes and refuses to think of jowly things* Did I mention I’m a cat chick? Thank God for the Ladies League. What was the toughest aspect of your story for you and J. to work through?
Madison: Depilatory issues. Being a werewolf is hell on the hair follicles.
Mac: Holy hell, I never thought of that!
Madison: Let’s not even go into unsightly hair in the weirdest of places. In spite of what you might think, duct tape is not a skin friendly alternative for controlling unruly bikini lines. Oh and I guess, being chased by crazed monster hunters would come in a close second.
Mac: *Looking dazed* Uh, yeah. I can see where crazed monster hunters might be a problem. How about giving us a short excerpt from your favorite scene in the story? And tell us why it’s your favorite.
Madison: Why is this my favorite? Because, it introduces me to the world. Like my coming out party all over again, only with fur instead of a staggeringly expensive gown. I know I may come off a bit conceited in this, but understand it’s just a mask I wear so people don’t get to know me. I’m really shy and retiring, in a pushy B-word kind of way. What can I say? I’m a wolf in stunning haut contour.
Not to sound totally insane, but how much wax does it take to do a bikini line when you’re a freaking werewolf? It wasn’t even close to a full moon, and I looked like I’d just staggered off Gilligan’s Island and the Professor hadn’t figure out how to turn a coconut into a Lady Bic. I’m sure Mabelle would have an absolute cow if I showed up at the Gilded Lady with a five o’clock shadow all the way down to my hot pink toenails. As a fully debutanted Southern Belle, my appearance represented not only myself, but the entirety of the South.
Heady thought, but I’d grown used to the pressures associated with my station in life. I’m not being egotistical. Please don’t think you’re dealing with one of those crazed high strung society sluts who thinks the world revolved around them. I’m nothing more than your average every day run of the mill country girl who just so happened to live in an antebellum home with fifty or so acres to romp around on and a trust fund that’d make your jaw hit the ground. Not bragging, stating the truth. Don’t hate me for being beautiful. Hate me because your boyfriend just slipped my number into his Top Five.
Mac: Okay, dammit. I’ll be right back. I have a book to purchase. I sure hope there’s room on my kindle. While I’m gone, why don’t you ask our visitors a question?.
Madison: Hmmm. One question, huh? I guess it would have to be… Does anyone know a better way to remove unsightly fur, because that duct tape mess is starting to chaff like you wouldn’t believe?
