Character Interview + Contest: Chase from Deadly Cool

It's hot boy interview time again, featuring Chase from Gemma Halliday's awesome murder mystery Deadly Cool!

If you hadn't run into Hartley under the circumstances you did, do you think you ever would have befriended her?

Just between you and me, I kinda knew who Hartley was before we started investigating the murder together. I'd seen her around school, and, well, let's face it, she's pretty cute. I took notice. But I knew she had a boyfriend. Plus, we never really hung in the same social circles. So, would I have ever been friends with her? Maybe not. But I certainly noticed her.

What would you do if you found a dead body in your closet?

I wouldn't run screaming like a girl, like Hartley did, that's for sure. Okay, not that I blame her. I mean, after she found the body she was a little incoherent. So I went in to have a look myself, and it was pretty creepy. But it's not like a dead body can hurt you. It wasn't a zombie or anything, just dead. Really, really dead.

What was the most interesting part of this whole case for you?

The whole thing was pretty wild. But what really threw me was when Hartley thought that I could have possibly had anything to do with the murder. Seriously? Not cool, Hart. Though, in her defense, I found out later that it was my ex-girlfriend, Shiloh, who put the idea into her head. Never trust an ex.

What's it like to kiss Hartley?

Niiiiiice. Really nice. Nice enough that I'd like to do it again. But that's as far as I'm gonna go with that one. I'm not the kind of guy that kisses and tells, you know?

So... do you always go commando, or did Hartley catch you on an awkward day?

Dude, does the whole world know about my underwear situation now? It was Hartley's best friend Sam, right? Did she tweet about it? Facebook it? A guy is slow doing his laundry one day and look what happens. I'm never gonna live this down, am I?

What kind of dinosaur would you describe yourself as?

Totally a T-Rex. When I'm on the trail of a hot story for the school newspaper, nothing stands in my way until I sink my teeth into the truth. 

You know, there really is nothing quite like stealing a hot boy for awhile to interview... especially when you get to ask about awkward moments that involve going commando. Curious about that one now, aren't ya? Then check out the book, because there is such a related scene in there. Not to mention, it's just an awesome book, coming in just a few short weeks on October 11!
