Conan Cahill Speaks!

Conan Cahill Speaks to Beverly Rae

An Interview with the Hero from CLAWED (Wild Things, Book 3)

Me: Welcome, everyone, to my interview with werebear shifter, Conan Cahill. You may remember him as the hero and all-round good guy from my latest book, CLAWED. Hi, Conan. I’m so glad you agreed to speak to me.

Conan: Yeah. Sure.

Me (I cast a sideways look at the heroine of CLAWED, Chloe Long): Chloe told me that you’re a man of few words. I guess that’s true.

Conan: Yep.

Me: Uh-huh. Um, okay, then. Let’s get right to it. Tell me. What’s it like being a werebear?

Conan: It’s okay. (Conan scowls at Chloe who has just given him a nasty look. “Talk, Conan. Say something.”)

Me: (Still hoping Chloe can get him to open up) Can you tell the readers how you and Chloe met?

Conan: Well, you ought to know. You wrote it.

Me: True enough. But the readers want to hear you tell the story.

Conan: (His dark eyes soften.) She came to the mountains and saw me fishing in the stream.

Me: So…did she start fishing with you?

Conan: (He grins at Chloe who is now blushing and waving her hands, urging him to not say anything more.) No. She ran away.

Me: Why would she run away? Were you in your bear form?

Conan: Nope. I was butt naked.

Me: Butt naked as in totally nude, right? You were standing in the water and fishing. What were you using for a pole? (I glance down at his crotch and cringe even though I know the answer to my question.)

Conan: (He shoots me a wicked grin.) I guess I could’ve used you-know-what, but that might hurt once the fish locked onto it. Naw, I’m kidding. I was catching fish with my hands.

Me: Just like a bear, right?

Conan: Well, yeah.

Me: But she didn’t run because you were nude. She ran because… (I motion for him to fill in the blank.)

Conan: She ran because I shifted. I changed into my bear form.

Me: Tell the readers what you did when she ran.

Conan: I chased after her.

Me: And did you catch her? (I smile, loving this part of the story.)

Conan: Oh, I caught her all right.

Me: Then what happened next?

Conan: I reached out my paw and I—

Me: Oh, no! I’m so sorry, Conan, but that’s all the time we have for now. Besides, I think Chloe’s about to have a heart attack. Thanks for talking to us, Conan.

Me: Calm down, Chloe. We won’t tell them what happened once he took you into your tent. (Conan and I high-five at Chloe’s embarrassment.)

Me: I hope everyone will pick up CLAWED and find out for themselves! Or check out my other books on my website at Goodbye, ya’ll!
