The Strong, Silent Type

Before we get to the heart of this post...THANKS TO ALL OF YOU for bring my Facebook Author Page to more than 100 likes! I'm grateful to you and thrilled :)

Watch for new giveaway rules on Monday!

Now on to today's character interview.


Carol: Hi, Ryan. You're a U.S. Marshal. Is that correct?

Ryan: Yes, ma'am.

Carol: How long have you been a Marshal?

Ryan: I'm not at liberty to say.

Carol: Do you like your job?

Ryan: Yes, ma'am.

Carol: Does it often take you away from your family?

Ryan: I'm assigned to an office, but I travel.

Carol: A lot?

Ryan: When needed.

Carol: How long have you known Summer Newcombe?

Ryan: We met through a mutual acquaintance.

Carol: That doesn't answer my question.

Ryan: Shrugs.

Carol: Is Ryan your first or last name?

Ryan: You know I can't answer that question.

Carol: Is Ryan even your name?

Ryan: Silence.

Carol: Are you going to answer?

Ryan: No, ma'am.

Carol: I see nothing's changed with you.

See why characters can be so frustrating sometimes?

Today I'm visiting with Rebecca J. Clark at Once Written, Twice Shy. She wants to know if I'm shy. What do you think?

Ryan is going to be here to answer your comments. I'm going to keep watch on him, though. If he gets too OCD about this closed-mouth thing, I'll be back.

Got that, Ryan? You need to make friends here. These are good people.

Ryan! Take off the body armor. Now!


Linda G. said…
LOL! Yes, Ryan, take off that body armor! ;)
Liza said…
Maybe the next book could be about Ryan...if he'd cooperate.
At least he's polite.
And you are not shy!

Characters can be so frustrating! Loved it.
JoLynne Lyon said…
I like Ryan. I know some people like him.
michelle said…
A man of few words... it can be quite an appealing trait...
I'm strangely attracted to him. :)

Carol Kilgore said…
Linda G - It's off. Carol took it with her.

Liza - Mmmm. Carol wanted to talk about that. I told her it wasn't a good idea.

Alex - Mama saw to that. And Grandma. She'd find a switch if I sassed her. You're right about Carol, too.

Delores - Yes, ma'am.

J.L. - How's that?
Cherie Reich said…
Hehe! Those strong, silent types. :)
nutschell said…

Carol Kilgore said…
Clarissa - We're circumspect.

JoLynne - Thank you.

Michelle - Please tell Carol.

Teresa - How strangely?

Cherie - Some are dangerous.

Nutschell - Carol can be a devil.

Love the interview, Ryan. :)
Linda Kage said…
Hello, Ryan (or whoever you really are!) Are you at liberty to tell us if you'll ever get to star in your own book, because I want Carol to uncover all your dirty little secrets! I loved your mysterious roll in IN NAME ONLY!!
CATachresis said…
I reckon if Ryan was the star of his own book, it would be hard to find in the library! lol
Carol Kilgore said…
Julie - Thanks. I'll pass on your congratulations to Carol.

Linda - My secrets could be dangerous for others.

CATachresis - I'll be sure and pass that on to Carol.

J. A. Bennett said…

He's a man of few words, but that's okay with me.

Ryan you made me giggle!

Medeia - I have many secrets to keep.

Michelle - I think that's a first.
Donna Hosie said…
This made me smile.
Carol Kilgore said…
Donna - You're being kind.
Ciara said…
He is kind of a frustrating guy. A total closed book. Of course, men with intrigue always catches a girl's attention.
Heather Gardner said…
Why do we always fall for these guys? Frustrating and sexy. There should be a warning label!
Great post.
Carol Kilgore said…
Ciara - You think I'm frustrating?

Heather - The only warning label I have is my U.S. Marshal badge.
Jay Noel said…
Luckily he didn't whip out the cuffs!

Jay - LOL! Too funny.
