Character Interview: Jed of 'Born to Resist'



We’re thrilled to be talking to Jed from Ember-Raine Winters, Born To Resist.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

Thank you for having me! I am 21 years old and I am a soldier for The Resistance. I am stationed in Silver City, New Mexico.

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

Well, Alexa has been known to call me a mountain man. I am about 6’4” and as she would say I am built like a tank. Ha ha!

Where do you go when you are angry?

The base I live on has roof access for when hover crafts come in from HQ. I either sit up there and collect my thoughts or I will go patrolling. In the hopes that I will catch a RONA guard doing something he shouldn't and I can vent my frustrations on him.

What makes you laugh out loud?

Alexa and Jacobs banter. Sometimes those two are so funny I can't help but laugh. Especially, when they harass Xander. The boy is wound like a freaking top and they try their best to lighten him up.

What is your greatest fear?

The thing I fear most is that when the time comes I won't be able to protect the people I love most in the world. I spent my entire life doing everything I can in The Resistance to protect those that our government turned their back on. But, I am afraid that when it comes down to it, I will fail to protect the ones that matter most to me.

What is the trait you most not like about yourself?

I feel deeply. Maybe a little too deeply for a soldier. It's cost me everything in the past and it's something I have come to realize I can never do anything about.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

I think she did to an extent. She makes me sound a lot wiser and more noble than I am. (Laughs) I am not as likable as she paints me to be. Most people give me a wide berth. (Smiles wide)

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

I used to be a loner. I went through some stuff awhile back and I shut-down. Shut everyone out of my life pretty much. But, recently I have been known to be seen running around the country with Alexa, Jacob, Xander, and Kara. As long as the four of them are the group I surround myself with then I am pretty happy.

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

My dad was a soldier. He fought in the Immigration Wars and he died when I was five. I always wanted to follow in his foot steps. He was my hero.

What is your most treasured possession?

I received a Medal of Bravery for taking down ten RONA guards who were attacking a couple of women in an alley. It was an honor. That is my most prized possession.

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

I am very forthright and I will tell you what I think even if you don’t  like it.

What would I love the most about you?

My wit, my snappy repartee, my laug.

The fact I hold grudges and when I write someone off they cease to exist.

Where do you go when you are angry?

I let everyone know and demonize my enemies 

What makes you laugh out loud?

A good joke or someone falling down. Slapstick.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

Title: Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson
Author: William Hazelgrove
Publisher: Regnery
Pages: 352
Genre: Narrative Nonfiction

After President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke in the fall of 1919, his wife, First Lady Edith Wilson, began to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. Mrs. Wilson had had little formal education and had only been married to President Wilson for four years; yet, in the tenuous peace following the end of World War I, Mrs. Wilson dedicated herself to managing the office of the President, reading all correspondence intended for her bedridden husband. Though her Oval Office authority was acknowledged in Washington, D.C. circles at the time--one senator called her "the Presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man"--her legacy as "First Woman President" is now largely forgotten.

William Hazelgrove's Madam President is a vivid, engaging portrait of the woman who became the acting President of the
United States in 1919, months before women officially won the right to vote. Movie Rights Optioned by Storyline Entertainment.

Character Interview: Amber Reynolds of 'Transgression'





We’re thrilled to be talking to Amber Reynolds from Jannette Fuller’s, Transgression.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

I’m seventeen and I have a part-time job on the weekends. I clean the suites at Ambrosial Inn, and every time there’s a special event, I’m in charge of the suites and the loft.  

Where do you go when you are angry? 

If I’m at home--my room. If I’m at school, I’ll hide out in the girls’ restroom. And if I’m at work, I’ll sneak off to the west side, but only if Phoebe (the steward of Ambrosial Acres) isn’t around. I have to walk around her house and into the backyard to get to the west side (Arcadia). It’s the most magical place in Ambrosial Acres, except for the secret island behind the lake….

What makes you laugh out loud? 

Trent (he’s such a goof)! Everything about him is lovable, and he doesn't have to try to put a smile on your face. Trent makes life more fun, more bearable.

What is in your refrigerator right now? 

A 2-liter of Dr. Pepper, leftovers from my mom’s lasagna, milk, eggs, butter….

What is your greatest fear? 

What am I not afraid of? Let’s see, the secret island (Euphoria) is inhabited by evil giants, the crows flying over Ambrosial Acres have red eyes and tend to CAW and leer at me, and to top it all off, I have a stalker who isn’t exactly human. I know, right?

What is the trait you most not like about yourself? 

Besides being wishy-washy with my faith, and dealing with identity issues (that no one knows about, except for Tirzah), I have a tendency to act out before thinking. Yep. I suffer the consequences because of that.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately? 

Yeah, but I wish Jannette would’ve given me more backbone in Transgression. She told me since it’s book one, she had to make me more immature and vulnerable, so I could grow in the following books. I get it, I really do, but I think she could’ve put a little more oomph in my personality! You know, a little Katniss and Tris here and there. Oh, well...guess I have to wait to be developed more. I hate waiting.

What is your idea of a perfect day? 

Sitting underneath the weeping willow (on the west side) with my friends, eating chocolate truffles and Italian subs.

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

It depends. Most of the time, though, I prefer being around others.

Who is your best friend? 

Tirzah Hopkins (she’s the chef at Ambrosial Inn). Her pastries are to die for, especially her chocolate truffles and pumpkin pies.

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

To be honest, it’s no secret. Everyone knows I have a thing for Levi and Josh.

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

My parents are so strict, they'd keep me inside the house until my last dying breath, praying over me until I saw the light. Did I mention my dad’s a pastor? Anyways, I’d pray for a miracle that I wouldn’t die, but just in case, I’d sneak out of the house and go to Cafe Jam with Tirzah, race another vehicle down the Parkway, get a tattoo, and then I’d reveal my feelings to Levi and Josh, hoping one of them feels the same way about me.

About the Author

Jannette Fuller loves spending time with the Lord and her family. She's a fangirl of everything lovely, and always tries to see the best in everyone, except for the villains in her YA series Ambrosial Acres.
 
When she’s not blogging or writing her latest article, she listens to sermons while sweating away unwanted calories, cleans the house until it sparkles, laughs at the silliest things, and enjoys the outdoors, especially her daily walks through the enchanted forest.

Of course there’s more to be said, but then her bio would end up being a memoir.

Character Interview with Boris Kharmalov of 23 Minutes Past 1 A.M.





We’re thrilled to be talking to Boris Kharmalov from Robert J Dornan’s, 23 Minutes Past 1 A.M.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

We have just been introduced and you are asking a personal question.  Here, drink this glass of vodka and we’ll talk about Ukrainian women first.  If you must know, I own a shop that sells mobile phones.  Business is not too good at the moment but I don’t concern myself with money.  I am thirty-six years old.  Do you ask your female guests the same question?  No Ukrainian girl over thirty would answer anything so personal.  Oh well…westerners.

What would I love the most about you? 

What do you mean by this? What’s not to love? I am a big loveable hairy bear.  If I wasn’t a breathing man, I’d be a warm blanket on a cold December night.  I make people feel alive and I make them laugh.  You would like this.  Call me.
 
Where do you go when you are angry?

I go lie on my recliner. Did I tell you that it has four tiny motors to massage my entire back?  Try to be angry after thirty minutes of heaven.

What is in your refrigerator right now?

Beer and apple juice.  I believe my cousin has leftovers from the Chinese food we ordered two nights ago.  Anything else you find should be handled with caution.

What is your most treasured possession?   

I am sitting in it.  My leather recliner has a built-in massager.  It is heaven on earth and better for my back than Olga from the grocery store.  I will leave that comment open for your amusement. No one is allowed to sit in my chair except for my cousin, Mila.  She scares me so I do not mess with her.

What is your greatest fear?  

 My greatest fear would be waking up in the morning to learn that I am now a Russian citizen.  That scares the crap out of me.  Putin is a dirty word in Kiev. 

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

No, not at all.  Half the time he made me look like a buffoon.  If you had seen those damn fish at the reactor you would have been horrified.  The author avoided my intellectual side and focused on either dark or funny events in my past.  He didn’t even talk about my girlfriends.

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

Apple juice, Perogies and mayonnaise.  Sour cream is also an option but only if the mayonnaise is not fresh. I am usually very careful where I shop.  Last year the old lady on the corner promised me that her batch of mayo was made a day earlier.  I was sick for a week because of her lies.  I was her best customer and now she sells potatoes at half cost because of her deceit.  Stupid old woman.  What was the question?

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

Why are you looking inside my cupboard?  Is this a common practice in your country?  You would see jars of unopened cabbage and oversized pickles.  Maybe a box of matches and a bag of ginger cookies.  I eat out or girlfriends bring me food so I have no need for storing cans or what not.

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

I’d lose my stomach because it’s becoming a distraction.  I’m much too handsome to be fat.  Ingrid from the barber shop told me that mayonnaise causes me to gain weight.  I no longer speak to Ingrid.

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

I have many friends and girlfriends.  If you have money, you have friends.  I have money so I have friends.  Do you have money?

Who is your best friend?  

 I have two, Igor and Evgeni and I have known them since childhood.  Evgeni is a Museum Director who blames all of Ukraine’s woes on Chernobyl.  Igor is a doctor with a bad temper.  One points fingers and the other bites them off.

Do you have children?   

Maybe.  Do you?

What’s your idea of a perfect meal? 

Mama’s Perogies and cheese with a side dish of potato soup.  On a winter night, this makes me forget our lives are crap.

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

Could be one of a hundred.  It’s nice but why keep it a secret unless you’re the one who stole the big vase I kept by the balcony. 

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

I wanted to be a cosmonaut.  I figured if a monkey could do it, so could I.

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

I would probably eat the pickles in my cupboard because they’ve been there forever.  I’d also finish the beer in my fridge before freeloaders drank it at my funeral.  You can have the apple juice if you want. Maybe I’d forgive Olga.  Maybe not.

About the Author

Robert J Dornan is someone who wishes to leave a better world to his children. He realizes that the odds are slim but he will do whatever he can to increase the probability of success.  He is always open to discuss new and innovative ideas and hopes someday to see the building of a functional solar city as well as a fair and community-driven compensation system.

Pimp That Character Presents Winfield Payton of 'Wanna-be's'





We’re thrilled to be talking to Winfield Payton from Mark Connelly’s Wanna-be’s.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

    Thirty-seven.  I teach college and write screenplays, and right now I’m the
    Communications Director at Frederick Douglass Savings and Loan.  We have
    some of highest paying CD’s in town by the way.

What would I love the most about you?

     My affable charm.

What would I hate the most about you?

     My affable charm.  I’m that type.

What is your greatest fear?

     Getting to Hollywood and discovering that it is just like Milwaukee
     without the snow.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

       Connelly is clueless about my inner motivations.  I’m way smarter than
       he thinks.  I just do things that look dumb to throw people off.  Plus, I am
       more successful with women than he imagines.  I could share stories.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

       Waking up next to a beautiful blonde to discover a string of acceptance
       emails, checks in the mailbox, and texts from other blondes.  You said
       a “perfect” day not a meaningful one. 

Do you have children?

            No, I couldn’t raise a houseplant.

What’s your idea of a perfect meal?

     Anything with less than 300 calories that costs under ten dollars. 

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

      If it is Shelly Bronfman again, I may have to leave town.  I admit to secure
      investment capital for the S&L I did what I had to do.  Shelly has a ton
      of money but sadly also she weighs a ton.   I guess I would hook
      up with her again, as long as nobody finds out.  I do have my pride.

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

      Find a time machine.

skittish investors and woos a wealthy cougar to keep the firm afloat. Figure-skating between the worlds of white and black, gay and straight, male and female, Jew and Gentile, Yuppie and militant, Payton flies higher and higher until the inevitable crash. . .

Praise for Wanna-be’s:

This book right here! What can I say about Winfield Payton...is he the most unlucky pasty or most unlikely fall guy...what a schmuck...I laughed so hard at this,for this guy....with this guy....every character described in this book will immediately remind you of a real life joker in the in the 24 hour news cycle on all of the Major networks and cable television channels regurgitating skewed facts benefiting them and lining their pockets....it's hip and fresh writing which could easily become a HBO series....or Starz..maybe..anyway get this book....I laughed so hard...almost popping my recent stitches from surgery...Mr. Connelly...thanks for making my recuperation fun...this book is not for the faint of heart..or PC sensitive readers...

Great question.  M&M’s, cheetos and more M&M’s.

If you could change one physical thing about yourself, what would that be?  
 That I could be my college size 4 again.  But who over 40 doesn’t wish that?
Are you a loner or do you prefer to surround yourself with friends?  
 Both.  I definitely love a good night out with friends. But I enjoy my own company too.
Someone is secretly in love with you.  Who is it and how do you feel about that?  
 My high school sweetheart Tom never stopped loving me.  And it pulls at my heart strings.

Character Interview: Ms. Cherry Cummins from S.P. Aruna's GIRL WITHIN GIRL




We’re thrilled to be talking to Ms. Cherry Cummins from S.P. Aruna's, Girl Within Girl series.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

I'm...I'm...I think I'm twenty four. That sounds about right. I'm a photojournalist. I would consider myself a top notch one too, considering I get exclusive stuff and I get sent all over the world to interview a lot of high profile figures.

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

I have honey blonde hair, which I like, and thin lips which I don't like. But my most distinguishable features are my friendliness and openness. I don't hide anything.

What would I love the most about you?

I'm very social and chirpy. I like a good time.

What would I hate the most about you?

I'm a bit of a man-hunter. I'm distracted by them, and somewhat needy when it comes to being pleasured, to use a polite phrase.

What is your greatest fear?

That a man will be bored with me. I told you I was needy about that.

What is the trait you most not like about yourself?

I don't think enough about the consequences of my actions.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

Actually, I think he treated me unfairly. He didn't focus enough on my positive aspects; only on my weak points. I have a weakness for sex, and I think he emphasized that too much. I mean, there are other sides to me, you know.

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

My lips...I hate them. They're too thin, like a snake's...if only I could have the lips of Angelina...

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

Oh gee, I would hate to be alone. Party, party, party...party hardy, I say.

Who is your best friend?

Oh boy, that's a toughie. I guess that would have to be my roommate, though I hardly see her and not even sure what her name is. Katy something.

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

Well, whoever it is, he better let me know. I don't like keeping secrets. If he wants me, he should tell me.

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

Screw the first good-looking man I saw. Or men, I should say,  more than one, if I had enough time...orgasm until the last moments, that's how I'd like to go.

About the Author
