{Character Interview} Rick Sheridan of Morgan Malone's Taking Control: Rick's Story



We’re thrilled to be talking to Rick Sheridan from Morgan Malone’s Taking Control: Rick’s Story.  It is a pleasure to have Rick with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Rick.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

I just turned 51 on the Fourth of July. I am former Marine and I write screenplays and consult on the military aspects of movies and television shows.

What would I love the most about you?

I can be trusted.

What would I hate the most about you?

That I can’t trust you…or pretty much anyone.

Where do you go when you are angry?

I leave. Into the ocean, into my MG, into the wind sometimes. I don’t like to lose control of my temper so the best thing I’ve found, when I can avoid a fight, is to remove myself from the situation.

What makes you laugh out loud?

The antics of the huge yellow Labrador Retriever that’s living next door to me right now. Alex is part fish, part Major League outfielder and part warrior, with a heart as big as the Atlantic Ocean.

What is your greatest fear?

Losing control. People get hurt when you lose control of a situation.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

She did. I gave her a run for the money. I don’t let people get inside my head. Or my heart. But Morgan’s damn persistent and doesn’t take too much crap. Then she put the perfect woman for me in my path. I danced and dodged but in the end, Morgan saw through me and all my bullshit and brought me to the place I needed – wanted- to be.

Who is your best friend?

My best friend is Michael Mullarney. Mick and I entered the Marine Corps together in 1989, we served together through some pretty hairy times in Africa, Bosnia and Iraq. Now, we live a few blocks from each other in Surf City, New Jersey. I’d give my life for him and he would do the same for me.

Someone is secretly in love with you.  Who is it and how do you feel about that?

Britt, a wonderful woman and former Army Captain who is recuperating in her aunt and uncle’s beach cottage next door to me, is attracted to me…I’m not sure she’s in love with me. I’m not comfortable with that word. I’m in lust with her but I don’t know that I’m capable of loving a woman in the “happy ever after” sense of the word. I do know that I want to get to know her better, in every way, and I want to protect her. She’s had a rough time, it might be better right now to just be her friend and not her lover. But there was a particularly steamy kiss the other day when I pulled her out of some rough surf…so I’d love to take that a little…a lot…further. She has an over-protective, muscular yellow Labrador Retriever who is always by her side, so that kiss might have been the beginning and the end.

What is your most treasured possession?

Of the things that I own, I’d say my old MG, Nellie, is my most prized possession. I’ve had her for years, re-built her with Mick’s help and keep her at my place in Surf City. There’s nothing like driving Nellie along the coast in the early morning with the top down-that’s freedom.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

I can’t answer that. I’ve almost died too many times. There have been too many days when I knew I would be, should be, dead before the next morning’s sunrise. I was responsible for too many other lives that could be, would be, lost the next day, to worry about myself and what meal I would like or place I might visit or woman I might hold. If I knew for sure I was going to die tomorrow, I’d do everything I could today to protect everyone I cared about, everyone I under my command…anything else would be dumb, stupid, selfish…. Like I said, I can’t answer that question.

About the Author

Morgan Malone is the pen name of a retired lawyer who turned in her judicial robes to write romantic memoir and sexy contemporary romance, which always features silver foxes and the independent women who tame them.

Morgan fell in love with romantic heroes after reading her mother’s first edition of “Gone with the Wind” when she was 12 years old. Rhett Butler became the standard by which she measured all men. Some have met the mark, most have failed to even come close and one or two surpassed even Rhett’s dark and dangerous allure.

Morgan lives near Saratoga Springs, NY with her beloved chocolate Lab. She can be found on occasion drinking margaritas and dancing at local hostelries, but look for her most often in independent book stores and the library, searching for her next great love in tales of romance, history, adventure and lust. When she can’t find the perfect man, she retreats to her upstairs office and creates him, body and soul, for her pleasure and for yours. Remember: love, like wine, gets better with age.

Her recent novel is the contemporary romance, Taking Control: Rick’s Story.

About the Book:

Summer on the Jersey Shore and all Rick Sheridan wants is some solitude at his beach house. Then he spots a lean, leggy blonde coming out of the surf and his plans are shot to hell. And the dangerous looking knife strapped to her arm tells him this is no damsel in distress. As a not-so retired Marine, at 51, Rick’s learned that nothing is for certain, plans can spin out of control and shit happens.

Wounded and weary from one too many wars, Britt Capshaw thought a summer at the Shore, hanging out in her family’s beach cottage, would help her heal. And figure out what to do with the rest of her life. Out of the military, disillusioned and distrustful of any two-legged male, Britt’s one love is Alex, the yellow Labrador retriever she rescued from Afghanistan.

Rick and Britt are immediately attracted to one another, but after years in combat, they are wary of letting down their guard, of giving up control. The summer heats up and fireworks are flying between them even after the Fourth of July. But, ghosts from their pasts haunt them and finally bring them face to face with some dark secrets that may destroy the fragile trust they’ve built.

Can Britt trust Rick with her dangerous past? Will Rick be able to let go of the rigid control he needs to keep Britt and himself safe from more heartbreak? These two brave souls fight against surrendering their hearts and finally finding love. Who will win?

{Character Interview} Buddy Cullen of Marty Roppelt's Mortal Foe @martyroppelt




We’re thrilled to be talking to Buddy Cullen from Marty Roppelt's, Mortal Foe.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Buddy.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Thanks for having me! I'm 27 years old, and teach journalism at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

I've got Styrofoam boxes of restaurant left-overs, a package of Braunschweiger liverwurst and one of Swiss cheese, Dijon mustard, ketchup, and a six pack of Miller Lite.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

I think so, and I say that grudgingly. I'm not sure I like everything I've read, if I'm going to be honest with myself. One of the things I drill into my students is journalistic integrity. Look at a story from all angles before reporting on it. Of course I'm imperfect, flawed. But I don't like every angle I see of myself.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

My girlfriend, Kelly, has the day off. We start the day making love. Then we hang out together until going to dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant. After dinner we head for the ball park, to our seats right behind the third base dugout. We watch the Cleveland Indians win the seventh game of the World Series—their first Championship since 1948. Then we drive back to my apartment and celebrate the rest of the night in bed.

I’m opening up your cabinet.  What foods do I see?

Mac and cheese, cans of Chef Boy-R-Dee ravioli, chicken-flavored ramen, a loaf of store-brand wheat bread… I suck at cooking. More than three ingredients, and I just lose interest.

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?

I'd be a little taller and a little more muscular. Just a little. I have no interest in becoming the Incredible Hulk.

Who is your best friend?

RJ, Rick Jankowski. We've been friends since grade school. We get together once a week or so at our favorite pub, the Come On Inn, drink a few beers and play darts. I have never beaten him at darts. Not once.

Do you have children?

No. I'm not sure I want any, either. Kelly and I have never really talked about it. We live in the moment.

What is your favorite weather?

I love autumn, the crisp chill of sweater weather. It's that middle ground between the extremes of summer swelter and winter freeze. Spring is just mud to me.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I think I always wanted to be a journalist. I wrote an article for our school paper once, and the praise gave me a kind of high. I don't write for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, but teaching journalism satisfies me as the next best thing.

About the Author

Marty Roppelt was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His original profession was acting on stage, in local commercials and training films and in film. This means that he has experienced life through a wide variety of day and night jobs, from barista to waiter and bartender to security guard, amongst many others. He lives in Illinois with his wife, Becky, and their eccentric cat, Fritz. Mortal Foe is his debut novel.

About the Book:

A picture is worth a thousand words… But what if that image can only be seen through the lens of one camera? What is the snapshot can only be seen by a select few? What if the photo has its origins in the pit of Hell? What is that face belongs to an enemy bent on destruction? This is Buddy Cullen's fate when he first dreams of his grandfather's death and then inherits his grandfather's antique camera and captures an image that haunts him and seeks his death. Can Buddy survive the curse that he sarcastically dubs "Popcorn"—a curse that no one wants to believe exists and stalks the city of Cleveland, beginning with its baseball team—a mortal foe?

{Character Interview} Dr. Henriette Behrens of THREE BROTHERS by Joerg H. Trauboth



We’re thrilled to be talking to Dr. Henriette Behrens, German Federal Chancellor of “Three Brothers” by Joerg H. Trauboth.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

“I work until deep in the night when most of the office lights are out and preferably with women. Too many of the men here are egocentric machos, except one. You unfortunately know who I mean.”

--Exclusive Interview with Dr. Henriette Behrens, THREE BROTHERS


1.      Thank you for your interview, Dr. Henriette Behrens.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Would you also ask a man how old he is, and that in your first question? Shame on you. You are also funny. My personal information as chancellor are only too well-known. In my position, there are very few details left unknown about you.

2.     
Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?

I always say what I want and I keep my word. My aim is to be trustworthy, nationally as internationally. People can rely on me, even if we have to resolve an unpleasant subject.

3.      What would I love the most about you?

My authenticity. And perhaps also my perfume “Y”, which is very hard to find anymore.


4.      What would I hate the most about you?

I work until deep in the night when most of the office lights are out and preferably with women. Too many of the men here are egocentric machos, except one. You unfortunately know who I mean.

5.      Where do you go when you are angry?

I don’t like to be physically touched in a greeting situation, like a hug, for example. Sometimes it’s awful. There are all sorts of men who are open to giving public displays of affection. The confident, reserved type, and the others who act more like roosters. During my trips to Brussels, and elsewhere, I am subject to a barrage of “peck on the left, peck on the right.” I have developed my own sort of defense strategy of blocking it early. But it doesn’t always work. What a stress for a woman!

After from such a grueling trip, I go to him. We cook together, quote Marcus Aurelius, and forget the rest of the world and all its stress.

Having said that, I am not too happy about Mr. Trauboth including the scene following my approving the Operation Eagle mission at his house when I fell into his arms with my doubts and fear about these three brave men. It was as if he saved me from making a terrible mistake when I came to that conclusion myself.

6.      What is your greatest fear?

I run a complicated three-party coalition government and am surrounded by political opponents who are all just salivating for me to make a mistake. The goal of every opposition is to overthrow the leaders. I think, am quite good in the daily crisis management.  My fear is having to step down. I do not give up! My fear is that this was caused by my own inaccurate assessment. You need to have a good core team and a lot of luck to survive here on this ejection chair with a hair-trigger.


7.      Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

Hmm, he wrote and I am a bit embarrassed: her black, shoulder-length, layered hairstyle was deemed the Henriette look. Handbags and shoes have taken on her name as their trademark. Her choice of clothing is an ongoing topic in the boulevard press. The Times ran a front-page story entitled “Germany’s Best Brand” about the overwhelming charm and brains of a one-of-a-kind phenomenon among European Heads of State.

I don’t want to comment on this, but I am also not unhappy with it. However, I would have liked to have read more about my political efforts to bring Germany and Europe forward and the two superpowers of the USA and Russia together. I find there is a little bit too much personal stuff in his thriller about me. For a retired Colonel and General Staff officer in NATO, I would have expected some more political details and less about my appearance.

8.      What is your idea of a perfect day?

Getting a good morning briefing, making various effective political decisions, not being tortured by my coalition partner, leave the office early enough to go grocery shopping before the stores close.

9.      What are three must haves when shopping at the grocery store?

Chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce, chocolate sprinkles, and whipped cream. I could eat it every day.

10.  Who is your best friend?

My personal assistant Susanne Ehrlich. She knows more about me then any author will ever know. Thank you for stopping by. Susanne will accompany you to out. But I forgot, you know that already…   


Joerg H. Trauboth (Wikipedia) was born just outside of Berlin in 1943 during an air-raid. He discovered his love for writing early in his career as an officer and was awarded top honors by the General Inspector of the German Bundeswehr. Along the way, he flew over two thousand flight hours as a Weapons Systems Officer and instructor in the Phantom RF4E (in which he survived two critical lightening strikes). After a training in George AFB (CA), Major Joerg H. Trauboth flew the  Phantom F4F  and finally – followed by another conversion training in Cottesmore (UK) –  the Tornado aircrafts. Trauboth became a General Staff Officer in the Military Academy of the German Armed Forces in Hamburg-Blankenese and enrolled as LtCol  in the NATO Defense College in Rome. He has served in the German national operational headquarters as well as in the NATO Headquarters in Brussels as the German representative in the areas of Crisis Management, Operations, and Intelligence.
At the age of fifty, he retired early from his post as a Colonel in the German Air Force to become a Special Risk Consultant at the Control Risk Group in London. He was trained and engaged in negotiating extortion and kidnapping situations in South America and Eastern Europe.
The former Colonel, eager to start making money on his own soon founded the Trauboth Risk Management company. He received a startup award and quickly made a reputation for himself internationally as an top-notch crisis manager in Europe. During his time as CEO, he conceptualized crisis prevention strategies for a number of European companies and employed a 24-hour task force to protect them from product tampering, product recalls, kidnappings, and image crises. He was also a co-founder and the first president of the European Crisis Management Academy in Vienna and wrote a standard reference book on the subject of crisis management for companies at risk of threat.
Today Joerg H. Trauboth is an author, filmmaker with more than 75.000 youtube clicks, and an enthusiastic Grumman Tiger pilot. (See this latest night flight-video here. And if you want to know who his favorite Co-Pilot is, have a look here.)  The crisis manager and active pilot has served as the European Director and President of the US – based international American Yankee Pilots Organization.
His advice on crisis management is continually sought after and he is present as expert in radio and television interviews regarding his opinion on  international crisis situations.
Joerg H. Trauboth has been  53 years married with Martina. They have two sons, three grandchildren, and both live near Bonn, Germany. In addition, Trauboth voluntarily contributes his expertise to the Crisis Invention Team of the German Federal Foreign Office in Bonn and reads from his fiction and non fiction books on readers’ tours followed by discussions with his readers about the dramatically changing world.
Joerg’s latest book is the thriller, Three Brothers.

Author: Joerg H. Trauboth
Publisher: Ratio Books
Pages: 581
Genre: Thriller

BOOK BLURB:
Marc Anderson and his two commando brothers Thomas and Tim are highly respected elite soldiers in the secretive German Commando Special Forces, the KSK.

However, their next mission – in Northern Iraq – to save two German hostages taken captive by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ends in disaster for the three brothers in arms. The perfectly laid-out strategy of Operation Eagle is betrayed, causes Marc, Thomas, and Tim to narrowly escape death. The German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) starts the hunt for the informant.
The devoted commando brothers decide to leave the KSK and start a new career together as security advisors with a family-owned company based in Cologne. But the terrorist activities of ISIS continue to determine their fate. The brothers are faced with one of their greatest challenges when ISIS kidnaps company heir Johannes Ericson and his partner Karina Marie. Moreover, the terrorists demand a ransom and extort the German government to immediately suspend its military intervention in the fight against ISIS. It is a race against time to save the couple from assassination.

Three Brothers unites the current omnipresent threat of terrorism with the author’s first-hand experience as a crisis manager and a military and terrorism expert. The result is an unrivaled political thriller. In this gripping novel, Trauboth foretells possible scenarios for our society in light of the rise of radical Islamic terrorism. Read the full chapter 1 here …
Three Brothers is the English translation of the successful German thriller Drei Brüder (ratio-books), highly appreciated by thousands of readers, as well as military organizations and government officials alike. Jörg H. Trauboth’s storytelling skills can be compared to those of Tom Clancy and similar authors as James Patterson. The German version of the novel will also soon be available as an audio book.
Drei Brüder has been translated into English by (US native) Leanne Cvetan.

We’re thrilled to be talking to Dr. Vincent Konrad from Michael Okon, Monsterland Reanimated.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Vincent.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

            It’s Dr. Konrad, thank you very much. Well, I prefer not to tell you my age because its none of your business. I’m also quite dead and I’m just a talking head, no pun intended. The rest of my body has been confiscated by the government, but my trusty sidekick Igor found my head and has reanimated it. Lucky me. I used to run a theme park with real werewolves, vampires, and zombies in a place called Monsterland. The ending was exactly as planned. Now, I’m onto Plan B.

What would I love the most about you?

            My love for humanity.

What would I hate the most about you?

            My hatred for humanity.

Where do you go when you are angry?

            Well I cannot move now. I need this brilliant head put on a body so I can continue my plan for world domination.

What makes you laugh out loud?

            Questions like these, you poor soul.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

            Well it used to be my head, but now that I cannot eat anything, nothing!

What is your greatest fear?

            Used to be werewolves. Now it’s mummies.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

            Not quite. He made me into this monster, where all I’m trying to do is save humanity from themselves.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

            My telling the government what to do, and them listening.

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?

            A bigger, more jacked body, which I should be getting rather soon.

{Character Interview} Anne of 'Awakening: Dreamers' Realm One




We’re thrilled to be talking to Anne from Karen Arnpriester’s, Awakening: Dreamers' Realm One.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Anne.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

Seriously, you think I’m going to tell you how old I am? I have the benefit of concealing my age here in the Dream Realm. I’m certainly not going to shatter the illusion for you. (pause) I am a lawyer. I help people, especially pathetic, stupid women. Try to prove differently and you will be taken care of.

What would I love the most about you?

I am a successful woman in a male dominated industry. I clawed my way up to the top on my own, without anyone’s help. If you get in my way, I will go through you to get what I want. I am a real success story for women today.

What would I hate the most about you?

My superior intellect and success. When you compare your pathetic existence to my life, you will hate the fact that you can never be me.

Where do you go when you are angry?

I don’t go anywhere. I assign one of my men, and they take care of the problem … quickly and discreetly.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

I’m sure whatever I desire, but you’d have to ask my servant if you want a list.


What is your greatest fear?

I do not experience fear, I ensure others do.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

No, she sympathizes with Luce and Richard. Like they are so good? Lucinda is naive and self-absorbed. Richard just wants to keep Lucinda happy, so he gets what he wants. They are both pathetic hypocrites that hide behind their religion. I was not given the respect for what I brought to the story.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

Time alone with Luce … her in shackles and a fully equipped tool chest.

Are you a loner or do you prefer to surround yourself with friends?

I don’t invest any time or energy in friends. They just want to suck the life out of you when they need a shoulder to cry on or money. I prefer my crew. They do whatever I tell them, and they don’t dare to expect anything other than our contract terms.

Do you have children?

No. They are the ultimate energy suckers. Worse than friends.

Because of her special powers Jaedus Sunwright is the best fitted to help combat this disease, only a few elves succumb to the disease, one being the wife of the second most prominent Elf in the land.
Now we move forward, the Elves are prospering the soul disease is gone, the population boom for the Elves has produced several distinct tribes amongst them. A power struggle ensues, in which the first murder occurs in the land, leading to the breakup of the tribes into separate nations and the very real possibility of war.
