Okay. I’m finally getting around to giving Luke, the lead investigator of the oh so popular ghost-hunting show, Cemetery Tours, the opportunity to interview me. It’s been a long time coming, since I haven’t posted a character interview since the one I did with Kate: https://jackiesmith114.wordpress.com/2015/03/25/character-interview-kate-avery/
That being said, let’s get started!
Jackie Smith (JS): Welcome, Luke!
Luke Rainer (LR): Thanks, Sweetheart. Good to be here. I gather you’re a fan?
JS: Probably one of your biggest.
LR: Awesome. That’s what I like to hear.
JS: So, what questions do you have for me?
LR: Here’s one. How come I don’t have a girlfriend?
JS: Do you want a girlfriend? You don’t really strike me as a “relationship” kind of guy.
LR: Not really. I’m just wondering. I mean, I’m gorgeous. I have a great personality. What gives? Why am I still single?
JS: Well, aside from the fact that you just confirmed that you don’t want one, I’m kind of of the mindset that you’re too focused on your career to have time for a serious girlfriend. You might find one eventually. But for now, you’re kind of man candy for my readers. You know what I mean?
LR: You’re using me as bait.
JS: Yeah, sort of. But really attractive bait.
LR: Fair enough. Okay, here’s another question. I’ve been chasing ghosts for a while now, yes?
JS: Yes. Basically your whole life.
LR: And that’s awesome. But when do I get to hunt something a little more sinister? You know, go after some demonic entities or evil spirits?
LR: What?! Why not?!
JS: I mean, if you really want to go hunting demons, knock yourself out. Go for it. I’m just not going to write about it.
LR: That’s not cool.
JS: Too bad. I’m the author. You have to do what I tell you.
LR: Not necessarily.
JS: Okay, you’ve got me there. Sure, when you’re not in my books, you can hunt as many demons and evil spirits as you want, but they scare me, so I’m not going to write about them. Besides, these are ghost stories. Not demonic entities stories.
LR: But you believe there are demonic entities out there.
JS: Enough to not want to mess with them, even in fiction, so yeah. Besides, I don’t think Michael can see those, and these really are his stories.
LR: Yeah, yeah, I know. Everyone loves Mikey. He’s the main character. Whatever. When are we getting a Luke Rainer series?
JS: That’s a good question. If I ever feel so inclined, I might write you one.
JS: I never rule anything out. Except demons.
LR: You never let me have any fun.
JS: You’ll have fun in the next book.
JS: Well, I hope so. I’m kind of rewriting it. But you’re a lot better off in this new version. I promise.
LR: Okay, good. I don’t know why, but I trust you.
JS: You really don’t have a choice.
LR: I have one more question.
LR: Can I be in the new Ghostbusters movie?
JS: Probably not.
LR: Why not?
JS: Because I’m not associated with that franchise in any way whatsoever. But if I was, I’d totally write you in.
LR: Aw, really?
