Character Interview with Daphne from Linked by Judy Serrano

An interview between Daphne and the author, Judy Serrano.

Daphne, as you know, you are the main character of my new paranormal romance, Linked. Were you happy in general about the outcome?

Well, I don’t want to give too much away, but you certainly did surround me with some very handsome alpha males. I can’t complain about that.

So true. Did you enjoy being a schoolteacher?

I wasn’t really a schoolteacher. I was more of a substitute teacher for high school, as Charlie was only too happy to continuously point out to me. It was a hard job but very rewarding. Next time make me something really exciting like a werewolf or a cheetah. I want to be something unusual and hard to catch.

I will keep that in mind for the next book. Do you think you made the right choice with the man in your life or do you wish I directed you somewhere else?

I am very happy with the choices I made. I think you made the right decision. Although the love triangle became very painful, in real life that’s how it is.

I suppose so. Did you wish you ended up with Dante, Charlie’s brother?

There is no doubt that Dante will always hold a special place in my heart. He was so sexy and crazy, but certainly I had other places to be. I had other men who needed me more.

One last question, Daphne. What do you think life would have been like if you just didn’t extend the invitation to Charlie Cross? Sometimes I think I should have named this book, The Invitation.

Don’t think it hasn’t occurred to me that I should have just said no. Nothing would have changed and I’d be a teacher by now, teaching high school English. But, that being said, I love my family and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Not many girls can say they have done what I’ve done or been where I’ve been. I am a lucky girl.

Thanks, Daphne, for letting me ask you a few questions.  Is there anything else you would like to add?

Yes. Girls… if you meet a guy and you know in your head that this is going to be the most thrilling ride of your life… get on board.
