For those who haven’t yet read Gerri Brousseau’s To Kill A Monarch, here is a bit about what the story is about before several of the characters give their point of view on some weighty matters such as their story lines, lifestyle and a furhter wide range of topics.
Whispers in dark allies say Napoleon’s best assassin, The Falcon, has been sent to London to kill the Monarch. The problem – The Falcon’s identity is known only to the French Emperor. Sir Walter Tinsdale’s new partner, Philip Hamilton, arrives to discover their mission is to find the elusive bird of prey before he strikes. But their nemesis is like a phantom and always one step ahead of them. Enter the lovely Miss Charlotte Winston, the object of Sir Tinsdale’s affections, as well as those of Philip Hamilton. Unlikely alliances, deception, murder, and suicide will keep you turning the pages until the identity of The Falcon is finally revealed. With all the seduction and action of a James Bond movie, To Kill a Monarch is like 007 in 1811.
For Phillip Hamilton:
What is your most favorite memory?
Phillip: I have rather fond memories of a recent weekend holiday spent at The Black Horse Inn.
Do you get seasick?
Phillip: Not hardly, madam.
What is the least favorite characteristic your writer has attributed to you?
Phillip: That annoying limp!
Do you prefer action to romance?
Phillip: I prefer action in my romance.
Do you have any secret aspirations?
Phillip: Secrets? Always, my dear lady.
For Charlotte Winston
What is something no one knows about you, even your writer? What would happen if it came out?
Charlotte: I have a soft spot in my heart for small animals and children. I yearn to have a family, but then again, that would make me too vulnerable.
What do you think your greatest weakness is?
Charlotte: My fondness for the telling of tales of intrigue.
What makes you the happiest?
Charlotte: Being wooed by handsome gentlemen.
What is your favorite curse word?
Charlotte: Oh my dear, a lady would never utter such words.
Why do you live on the outskirts of London rather than in the city itself?
Charlotte: I find the city to be far too congested. I much rather enjoy the fresh air than breathing in the smoke filled cloud that lingers over the city. I also very much prefer the privacy that living on the outskirts of town offers.
For Walter Tinsdale
If you could rewrite anything in your story what would it be?
Sir Walter: I would fancy a love scene with Miss Winston, and I would very much prefer a different ending to this tale.
Do you have any siblings?
Sir Walter: Sadly, I do not.
Do you think your story deserves a sequel?
Sir Walter: I have been given to understand that Ms. Brousseau is planning on penning a sequel. If that should prove to be the case, I certainly hope she shall allow me the opportunity to vindicate myself.
What embarasses you?
Sir Walter: Being played the fool.
You have something to add, Mr. Hamilton?
Hamilton clears his throat.
