Character Interview

Question: What’s your name? Lizzy Holloway
Lizzy: Where did you grow up? I grew up in Detroit.
Question: During what time period does your story take place?
Lizzy: Contemporary
Question: What’s your story/back story?
Lizzy: When I was in college, I saw the movie Wedding Crashers and got the idea to do the same. Except I also crashed funerals, bar mitzvahs, retirement parties while in college so I didn’t have to live on a dollar store food budget.
Question:Why would someone come up with a story about you?
Lizzy: Old habits die hard and when I found out my favorite actress Ivory Rodgers was in town and was doing a press event, well I just had to go and see her. I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve always been sort of half in love with her.
Question: What’s your goal in this story?
Lizzy: My goal is to make Ivory realize that I belong with her.
Question: What conflicts are you facing?
Lizzy: My parents are older and have health issues. Because they live on a fixed income I try to help with their medications. They tend to skip their medications to stretch them out. And also, someone that I thought was a friend, turns out she is anything but and is trying to destroy my relationship with Ivory before it gets started.
Question: Do you have a plan for resolving them?
Lizzy: Kicking her ass or finding someone else that will.
Question: Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?
Lizzy: I just found out that Ivory doesn’t live here. What I mean is in this realm. Apparently, she lives in a place called Helotry, one of seven different versions of Earth.

Blurb for Lizzy’s Temptation

When Lizzy sneaks into an event where actress Ivory Rodgers was scheduled to appear, she gets more than she bargained for. Ivory Rodgers is hotter, sexier in person and takes Lizzy under her control.

Excerpt from Lizzy’s Temptation

“Looking for the Ivory Rodgers’ party?” asked a soft feminine voice behind her.
“Yes,” answered Lizzy, turning her head. Holy shit, it was Ivory Rodgers. Just be cool, just be cool, she told herself.
“Come with me,” she smiled.
“Okay,” admitted Lizzy.
“I’m Ivory Rodgers,” she introduced herself, holding her hand out.
“Lizzy Holloway. It’s very nice to meet you,” she replied, shaking her hand. Damn, the woman was even hotter in person, tingles ran up her arm. Damn, she’d never been this way with anyone before.
“I love your hair and dress,” complimented Ivory, walking towards a ballroom.
“Thanks.” Self-consciously, Lizzy touched her hair, still getting used to the different shades of purple spiral curls hung down her back. “I just got it done today.”
“I like it,” smiled Ivory, her jet-black hair hung down the middle of her back. Her trademark hazel eyes, made it hard for Lizzy to turn away.
“There you are Ivory,” said a man that seemed to command the room with his presence. Tall, elegant in a black suit. “We’re about to start. Who’s this?”
“My new friend Lizzy Holloway,” introduced Ivory. “Lizzy this is Spencer.”
“Hi,” something about him told Lizzy he was used to commanding attention. That most people he encountered would do whatever he would say.
“Ivory, I warned you about doing this,” he said to her, looking worriedly at Lizzy. “I told you this needs to stop.”
“Why? When I can make new friends like Lizzy,” questioned Ivory. “Get something to eat, and I’ll be back soon. I won’t stay here long, then we can go somewhere quiet and get better acquainted.”
“Me?” Lizzy couldn’t stop the shock from her voice. Lizzy wanted to get better acquainted with her?
“Yes, you,” confirmed Ivory. “I can’t wait until I get you alone.”
Why did it sound like she’d been expecting Lizzy? Maybe she should leave? But then she’d miss the chance to get to talk to Ivory. This could be a night she’d never forget. Walking to the tables that lined the wall, she picked some stuff off the plates.
“Drink?” asked a waiter behind her.
“Thanks, do you have any Pepsi?” she asked. Thinking it might be better to keep her mind clear.
“Of course,” he nodded, “I’ll be right back.”
