I’m hosting a character interview today for the book tour for “The Legacy Series”. Enjoy the interview!
Interview with: Shelby Beasley from “The Legacy Series”
How do you feel about your family, now that you’re an adult?
A: That is such a hard question with all the new information that I have found out about my family lately. If you had asked me two years ago, I would have said I have a wonderful family that I have been a complete and total disappointment to. Now, I feel that my family is a big’ole mess but I love them all.
What is your favorite occupation?
A: I love to teach. I actually would love to teach at the elementary school level to watch a child’s face as they make a new discovery. That is the most wonderful thing in the world.
Which living person do you most despise?
A: Sadly right now it is my father. He has turned out to not be anything like the man that I thought he was. I am so disappointed and angry with what he has done to our family.
What is your greatest regret?
A: My greatest regret right now is all the time that I spent not understanding and knowing both my mothers. I mean you can’t get time back so I just hope that God will grant me more time with the both of them to really form the relationships we should have had in the beginning.
What is your most treasured possession?
A: My granny gave me a locket and inside the locket are pictures of both of my mothers and on the back of the locket are my granny initials. These three women are where I come from good, bad or indifferent these women have helped to shape the woman I am today, and will be in the future so this locket means the world to me.
How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period?
A: I would love to say that I am practical and I fall in love over time. But I am a sap at heart, love at first sight for sure. I believe that our hearts never fails us. It’s the rest of our bodies that gets us in trouble.
What do you say to the people that say your family is over the top?
A: I would say they should stop lying to themselves about their family. Every family has secrets and if yours doesn’t that means they have a whole cemetery of nonsense going on. And when all those bodies get up… it will be like night of the living dead.
