{Character Interview} Roxie Honeycutt of 'Wooing the Wedding Planner'

We’re thrilled to be talking to Roxie Honeycutt from Amber Leigh Williams’s Wooing the Wedding Planner.  It is a pleasure to have her with us today at Pimp That Character!

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

Let’s not get into too many specifics on the matter of age. We’ll just say early thirties and I’m a wedding planner.

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

My smile. I’m an optimist. Some would say I’m the eternal optimist. I think a good smile reflects that.

Where do you go when you are angry?

Well, I’ve smacked a couple of men so it seems I’m in need of a more constructive outlet in terms of aggression. Don’t worry, the second guy definitely deserved it. The first was kind enough to laugh it off with me later. He’s that hot new neighbor guy. Did I mention Byron?

What is in your refrigerator right now?

A bottle of Cristal. It was a housewarming present. I’m teaching myself to cook so there’s an odd assortment of test ingredients. Oh, and a casserole from my friend Briar – just in case my cooking efforts fall through.

What is your most treasured possession?

Right now – this house! It’s gorgeous – old-fashioned Victorian and everything I’ve ever dreamed of living in! Only there’s Byron. He seems to think it’s his, too. There’s some dispute about that. You can be sure of that.

What is the trait you most not like about yourself?

Doubting myself – my appearance or abilities. I have one of those mothers. You know the type: never satisfied with who you are. I think that’s why I’m as positive and forward-thinking as I can be – to drown out that doubting voice in my head that sounds too much like her.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

I think at times she had a little too much fun planting me and a stubborn cynic in the same living space. Sometimes I think she did this for her own enjoyment. However, the payoff is…rewarding. I’ll say that!

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

I spent too much of my life torturing myself over whether my appearance is up to standards. I’m done with that now. I’m me and that’s plenty.

What’s your idea of a perfect meal?

Something I don’t burn or undercook. So far, that’s pie. Would you like a slice? It’s packed with juicy apples, cinnamon and sin. Oops! Did I say sin? I wasn’t thinking about sin. Even if I was, it’s Byron’s fault. He might’ve kissed me somewhere along the lines of the baking process and now I can’t remember exactly what that process entailed.

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

My friends keep telling me it’s Byron. Also his sisters. His mother, too, keeps hinting it. Oh, and his great-aunt. But I’m not ready to get involved with anyone this soon after the divorce. And neither Byron nor I are the kind of people who are capable of casual dating…are we??

Wedding planner Roxie Honeycutt can make happy-ever-after come true for anyone except herself. Freshly divorced and done with love, she's okay with watching clients walk down the aisle. What's not okay? Sharing a charming Victorian house with accountant Byron Strong. He's frustratingly sexy and determined to keep her confused. 

Roxie thought Byron's expertise was numbers, yet somehow he sees her for who she really is. Somehow he understands the hurt she hides behind a trademark smile. Suddenly romance is tempting again, even if it means risking another heartbreak.
