Interview With Blake Daniels

Tell us about yourself. What
are you like?
For a long time, I was
driven and focused on my hockey career. After the tragedy four years ago in which
I lost my entire family, I spent the next four years floundering like a ship lost
at sea. My career went down the tank, and my personal life was even worse. Meeting
Sarah this Christmas changed all of that. Now I have a direction and a future that’s
bright. I’ll be opening a little bistro on one of the islands (San Juan Islands) because I love to cook.
What do you think is your strongest
I think my kindness
to animals and others.
Do you have a weakness? (If
so, what do you think it is? What does your lover think it is? What does your enemy
think it is?)
I think my weakness
is my tendency to close up when things get tough and keep everything inside. I’m
pretty sure she’d agree with that, though she’s better at getting me to open up
than anyone else I’ve ever met except my mother. The only enemies I’ve ever made
were on the ice. They’d say I was a ruthless hockey player in my earlier days.
What drives you to do the things
you do? What makes you want to be the “good guy?”
I was raised by a loving,
caring family and parents who set a good example for me every day of their lives.
I constantly strive to be the son who would make them proud.
Forward Passes
What’s your favorite guilty
A naked Sarah and warm
chocolate fudge at the same time.
If you didn’t know how old you
were how old would you be?
About sixteen when I’m
with Sarah.
A biography has been written
about you. What do you think the title would be in six words or less?
He overcame Tragedy
to Love Again
If money were not an object,
where would you most like to live?
Right where I am (Washington State’s
San Juan Islands)
What song would best describe
your life?
Garth Brooks’ “The Dance”
If you were a tool, what would
people use you to do?
I’d be a hammer because
I hope I’d be used to build things and make life better.
Picture yourself as a store.
Considering your personality and lifestyle, what type of products would be sold
Definitely a grocery
store, but one that sold hard-to-find items and fresh produce.
As a child, what was your favorite
thing about school?
After the final bell
rang and going to hockey practice.
Tell us an embarrassing story
that has to do with a pet. If you have no pets, a story about a significant other
will do
My sister had a schnauzer
that had it in for me. One time at family reunion, he peed on my jeans’ leg. I never
noticed it but everyone else did. My brother managed to get it all on video.
If you came with a warning label,
what would it say?
Beware, this man will
seduce you with whispered promises and great food.

Please Fill in the Blanks as Blake

I love pizza with all meat.
I’m always ready for dinner and sex.
When I’m alone, I like to read or watch sports.
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m actually
pretty romantic.
If I had a halo it
would be surprising.
If I could go back and win the Stanley Cup I’d be
one happy man.
I can never forget because they meant
too much.

Holiday Spirits can mean a multitude of things.
For some, getting in the holiday spirit means shunning the materialism and commercialism of the season and embracing the “true meaning” of Christmas (i.e., Christ’s birth in Bethlehem).
For others, holiday spirits means all the fantastic “spirits” that can be found behind the shelves of your local bar or liquor store. They look forward to toasting the season with spiked eggnog, Irish cream, or perhaps a lovely holiday mojito.
For Dickens, holiday spirits were the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future. Each one had a message to deliver to Scrooge, enabling him to discard his signature “bah-humbug” for a large helping of Christmas cheer.
Although holiday spirits can mean all those things, there is an often unrecognized portion of the population for whom the holidays don’t hearken in joy and goodwill, but depression and desperation. The lonely, the homeless, the ill, people struggling with addictions, and those who’ve lost loved ones and are having a hard time coping with life — let alone celebrating. Even the most normal-appearing folk often have trouble reconciling their high expectations of the season with reality. Holidays often aren’t perfect and can often be more full of stress and strife than peace and joy.
In my latest short story, A Christmas Curse, published in ‘Twas a Dark & Delicious Christmas anthology, Frank Moran, a paramedic, runs across a long-running string of suicides. Every Christmas Eve, someone leaps six floors to their death from the same apartment. He’s shocked to find out that the deaths have been occurring for the last 20 years with only one survivor, Amanda Spaulding, who was only 5 years old when she endeavored to jump to her death. He tries to get the police to investigate but there is nothing to point to foul play, in fact, the police think the apartment is just the venue the people choose to use to take their own lives. When Frank’s wife dies, he’s pitched into his own sea of despair. The only thing keeping him sane is investigating the suicides. To do so, he rents apartment 666 and camps out on Christmas Eve, determined to break the trend or to die trying. When Amanda Spaulding shows up at his door, Frank is suspicious of her and her motives. Has he finally discovered a diabolical serial killer or is she truly the innocent victim she appears to be?
Although my story is pure fiction, it touches upon a subject often swathed in silence and not often discussed during this time of rejoicing. Suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans every year. So, show your holiday spirit, go out to SAVE.Org, know the warning signs of suicide, and make this a more joyous season for everyone!
Merry Christmas –
