Interview with Link Jacks

Tell us about yourself,
I used
to be a pretty normal guy. I grew up middle class, raised by two music teachers.
I had a talent for music so I got a partial scholarship to Julliard. Never had much
luck with girls at least not until I was discovered and joined rock band Becket.
Once the image consultants, wardrobe people and public relations advisors got their
hooks into me, well life changed. All the sudden I couldn’t keep the women away
and everyone wanted a piece of me. I’m not really the bad boy monster the press
makes me out to be, but it sells albums and keeps my name current. At least that’s
the way I used to feel before I met her, Madison.
She brought out the real me and made me strong enough to face the world as myself.
Oh, I’m also thirty years old and questioning everything.
What is it that you want,
but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
I want
Madison but I want
her fully in my world. She’s determined to not disappoint her sister by hooking
up with me but I know I can get her family to see things my way. I’m not who the
all think I am, I’m the real me when she’s around. I want to wake up with her every
day of my life but she just keeps on running.
What’s your external complication?
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most.
I know
she’s attracted to me; she even seems to care. The trouble is being with me has
practically ruined her life. She lost her job, she’s been shamed in front of everyone
she knows and the whole on-line world got to see her fucking me. The press is hassling
her, people are giving her the stink eye and I can’t get her to forgive me for something
I didn’t really even do.
What is your family like?
My mom
passed away but my dad is still around. He’s actually part of the problem. He thinks
the best way for me to stay on top is to keep my name in the tabloids. He’s always
working on some scenario that will get me press, whether it be dates with supermodels
or rumors of trashed hotel rooms and drug addictions.
What special skills do
you rely on?
I am
an incredible pianist and guitar player. I can really sing although I usually only
sing back up. I love building small models and like to think I can teach anyone
how to play an instrument – heck, I wanted to be a music teacher when I was growing
up. I also have a head for business – I sure don’t want to be hopping around on
stage in my fifties so I have diversified.

About the Writer

Why did you choose to
write about this character?
He seemed like such a loveable, misunderstood bad boy and he
made my pulse quicken just thinking about him.
Was there anything you
discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
When I started writing about Link I didn’t expect him to be so
smart. I was originally going with musical prodigy with a make over. He came into
his own and proved to be a truly kind person, motivated business man and stand up
What do you want to write
I am finishing up a third book right now. It is a bit of a romantic
mystery that I hope will give readers a sexy love story and a who dunnit all at
the same time.
What other character from
this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I have already begun writing about the female protagonist’s best
friend, Darling Roberts. Link will also feature in the book as he really wants to
see his friend find love, even if that means a little manipulation!
