Character Interview: Bee Maxell of 'Death at First Sight'

We’re thrilled to be talking to Bee Maxwell from Lena Gregory’s, Death at First Sight.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

Thank you so much for having me. Well, I’d rather not say exactly how old I am, though I will say I’m still in my thirties, but I do love talking about my career. I am a fashion designer, and I own Dreamweaver Designs, a designer dress shop on Bay Island. I am currently gearing up for my annual fashion show, which I expect to sell out the theater again. Just between us, I’m expecting some very important buyers this year. This could be just what I need to catapult me into the big leagues. As long as everything goes perfectly.

What would I love the most about you? 

I am a very loyal friend. Unlike some people.

What would I hate the most about you? 

Though I don’t like to admit it, I can be a little moody.

What is in your refrigerator right now? 

I don’t actually know. I can’t remember the last time I opened my refrigerator. I eat most of my meals at the diner or the deli. I do know there’s a box of donuts on the counter. Just for emergencies, you know. They’re nothing like the donuts from Tony’s bakery, or even the deli, mind you, but they’ll do in a pinch if I get stressed and can’t get out.

What is your most treasured possession? 

My black Trans Am. That car is my pride and joy. At least, it is again now that I got rid of the…quirks Cass caused last time I took her to the cemetery.

What is your greatest fear? 

People finding out the truth about me.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately? 

Personally, I think she made me out to be a little bit more of a drama queen than I actually am. Just sayin’.

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

I’m more of a loner. While I do enjoy being around people, some of my deeper secrets make getting too close to people difficult.

Who is your best friend? 

Cass Donovan is my best friend. She owns Mystical Musings, a psychic shop down the boardwalk from my designer dress shop.

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

I would definitely find Cass and tell her to try to get in touch with me after I’m gone. Not that I believe in any of that mumbo-jumbo, but it’s still comforting to think I might still be able to talk to my best friend.

About the Author

Lena Gregory lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.

When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.


About the Book:

Title: Death at First Sight
Author: Lena Gregory
Publisher: Berkley
Pages: 304
Genre: Cozy Mystery

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that something’s not right on Bay Island...
Since she left her psychiatric practice in New York City to open up a psychic shop in her hometown on Bay Island, Cass Donovan has given her fair share of readings to conflicted customers. But what she sees in Ellie Callahan’s future doesn’t bode well.

When Ellie’s mother, Marge, publicly confronts Cass about the reading, the embarrassment makes her want to curl up and die. And when she later stumbles across Marge’s body—and is a suspect in her murder—Cass is suddenly the star of Bay Island’s rumor mill.

Cass is determined to prove her innocence and save Ellie from meeting the fate in her unfortunate vision. But even with the help of her friends Bee and Stephanie, Cass will have to channel some serious sleuthing instincts to find the real killer...
