Do you enjoy interviews with book characters as much as I do?
Meet Lottie Baldwin and Harlan Erikson from the FATAL FORTUNE, the first book in the Lottie Baldwin Mystery Series by talented Elizabeth Delisi.
Interviewer: Tell us how you two met.
Lottie: We met when I was moving to Cheyenne, ND and nearly got arrested by Harlan.
Harlan: <protesting> I didn’t arrest you! I just pulled you over for speeding.
Lottie: Well, you *could* have arrested me, if you hadn’t gotten another call. <sticks out tongue>
Harlan: I knew from the start you’d be trouble. Believe me, the last thing I want to do is arrest you.
Lottie: <smiles> You’re so sweet.
Interviewer: So Lottie, tell us a little about how you solve crimes using your tarot cards.
Lottie: I’m psychic, and my tarot cards are the most common way I uncover information that can be used to solve—
Harlan: *You* don’t solve crimes. *I* do. It’s my job.
Lottie: I know, honey. <pats his hand> I just help. <whispers to interviewer> But he couldn’t do it without me.
Interviewer: What other psychic abilities do you have?
Lottie: Sometimes I get visions. When one appears, I just have to go with it. They can be helpful, but they don’t come on command.
Harlan: They usually come during dinner. <grins>
Lottie: <ignores him> The visions can be hard to interpret, as are the tarot cards. But eventually the truth reveals itself.
Interviewer: Do you have a favorite tarot deck?
Lottie: Actually, I do. A friend created a special deck for me, and it’s the one I always use. My friend calls it the Lottie Baldwin tarot. I just call it mine.
Interviewer: To change the topic, I understand you two are engaged.
Lottie: Yes! My sweet man proposed to me on Christmas Day. We’re planning the wedding now. Well, *I’m* planning the wedding.
Harlan: Lottie, you know I’m doing all I can. But the Sheriff’s Department has been busy with—
Lottie: Yes, I know. You’re doing all you can. <winks at interviewer>
Interviewer: Any plans for the future?
Lottie: Beyond the wedding? No. I’m concentrating on getting Harlan down the aisle. Sometimes you can over-plan these things.
Harlan: Baby, you know I’ll be there—
Lottie: And leave your pager at home?
Harlan: <groans> Okay. Yes. Pager at home. Satisfied?
Lottie: <smiles sweetly> Yes, honey. One hundred percent!
