Because my new release, Not Enough, features a few Christmas scenes, I thought I'd interview my leading male, Blake, about his Christmas plans. Please give him a warm welcome!
Mia: Hi Blake. Thanks for agreeing to an interview, especially at this time of year. It’s a shame Neve couldn’t be here, but at least I get you all to myself.
Blake: [Chuckles] Hey everyone! Yeah, Neve isn’t really a fan of interviews so you’re stuck with me.
Mia: I understand where she’s coming from completely. Anyway, what I really want to know is have you got any plans for Christmas yet?
Blake: I think we’re going to spend the day with my parents. It should be a laugh and they haven’t seen Neve since we became a couple so that should be interesting.
Mia: You haven’t got any special gifts planned?
Blake: What do you mean by special?
Mia: The jewellery kind, maybe.
Blake: [Glances around nervously] What have you been told?
Mia: I saw you looking round a cute little jewellery shop not far from here yesterday. Anything you fancy telling me and the readers about your plans?
Blake: Not really.
Mia: Come on, Blake. Please?
Blake: [Shakes his head with a teasing smile] I think you’ve already revealed enough really. I’m not going to risk Neve seeing this and ruining my surprise.
Mia: So there is a surprise? And it involves jewellery?
Blake: My lips are sealed. You’ll have to read our story if you want to know what I have planned.
Mia: Okay, fine. How about some Christmas themed quick fire questions instead? You just have to answer with the first thought that comes into your head.
Blake: [Shrugs] Sounds easy enough.
Mia: Favourite Christmas memory?
Blake: Sneaking downstairs on Christmas Eve with Neve and hoping to catch Santa coming down the chimney. My parents found us the next morning curled up under the tree asleep, and Neve spent forever picking pine needles from her hair.
Mia: Favourite Christmas food?
Blake: My mum’s mince pies. Seriously, if you haven’t tried them you haven’t lived.
Mia: Best present you’ve ever received?
Blake: A mini remote controlled helicopter. It was only a few quid, but I had more fun with that toy than anything else when I was a kid. Shame I crashed it.
Mia: Favourite Christmas movie?
Blake: Any as long as Neve’s there. I spend more time watching her than the film.
Mia: Favourite Christmas song?
Blake: The Power of Love by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
Mia: What have you bought Neve?
Blake: [Laughs] Nice try, but I’m not falling for it.
Mia: It was worth a shot. I guess people will have to read your book to find out since that’s all I have time for. Thanks again Blake. I hope Neve loves her gift and have a Merry Christmas.
Blake: Thanks, Mia. I hope you and your readers have a great Christmas too.
