Blog Tour: Blood Debt by Nancy Straight (Character Interview!♥)

Character Interview:
Now I get to do a character interview with Daniel! After reading my review, can you guess how happy that makes me?!?!?! *SQUEE!*

Daniel! I’m so happy to get to interview you today.  Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
Geeze, Jessica.  You know how to make a guy feel welcome.  Nancy told me you were one of her favorite bloggers, she didn’t tell me you’d be so hot!  Could I sit on the couch with you? *eases closer*

*blushes and pretends not to notice* *clears throat* So, what was it like growing up with Camille?
*eases further away* Right, Camille.  I almost forgot about her for a millisecond.  Thanks for bringing her back up.  *eyebrow furrows*  We had a great time as kids.  *sighs*  I was a little scrawny when I first met her in the third grade.  There was this boy that had repeated third grade, like twice, so he looked like a fifth grader.  He was on the playground and took my kickball.  I tried to play it off like I didn’t care, but Camille saw what he’d done, walked straight up to him, doubled up her fist and punched him in the nose.  *laughs hard*  The kid grabbed his nose and let the kickball fall to the ground, Cami picked it up, walked over to me, and asked if I wanted to play.  *big smile*  That’s what life was always like with Cami.  She didn’t take crap off of anyone and she was always sticking up for others, even people she didn’t know. 

Awww, that's sweet!

Are there any particular things about Camille that just get on your nerves?
Only like every decision she’s made the last few months.  Her mom died and she went on this stupid quest to find her dad.  I get why, but it was only supposed to be a few days.  She disappeared for months:  no email, no text, no calls.  It’s like she forgot she had a life out here in Cali, you know?

Oh, I know. I KNOW. Poor Daniel...

Camille’s a very stubborn girl.  What is your opinion on this?
Stubborn?  Cami?  *smirks*  I know she’s got Centaur blood, but I swear somewhere along the way her DNA got crossed with a mule, too.   

This would not surprise me. Hehe.

You and Camille are just friends.  Best friends, actually.  That said, do you get jealous of her interactions with other guys?
*eye muscles flex* What?  No!  What do I have to be jealous of?  She’s a magnet for losers.  One day she’ll. . .  I mean, she’s. . . the guys she wants. . .   Hey, can we just go to the next question? *bright red blush*

Aww, but you're so cute when you blush!

What’s something about Cami that no one knows but you?
Up until she left for South Carolina I would have bet I knew everything about her.  Even things she didn’t know about herself.  *lips purse together hard*  Something no one else knows?  Cami comes off like she’s real tough, but that’s just a front, you know?  She’s got a heart of gold and would do anything for a person who needs help, even a stranger. 

She and I were supposed to meet at the movies when Transformers first came out.  I told her I’d pick her up when she got off work, but she said she was only a couple miles away and would take a cab so I didn’t have to fight traffic to get there.  She showed up thirty minutes late, came walking to the theater by herself, in the dark.  I started to lay into her for walking there after dark by herself and she told me she saw a mom and two kids standing outside the Burger King right next to where she worked.  They’d been there for hours, she used her cab fare to buy food for the kids. 
No wonder you two are best friends...

What’s your favorite thing about Cami?
Her smile.   Hands down, her smile.

AWWW! Such a sweet answer. <3

If you could change one thing about your and Cami’s situation, what would it be?
Anything?  *taps finger to chin* I’d go back in time and tell her mom never to tell Cami who her father was.  If Cami had never made that call, everything would be the way it was.  I wouldn’t be going out of my mind with her being who knows where.  I wouldn’t be on the outs with Pops, sorry, Jessica, I mean my dad.  My boss wouldn’t be an inch away from firing me for blowing off work and flying all over the country looking for Cami.  *nods confidently* Yeah, if I could change one thing, I’d have convinced her mom not to tell Cami anything about her dad. 

What’s your favorite memory with Camille?
The one I told you about the playground in third grade is one of my favorites, but I have hundreds like that.  Cami and I have been inseparable since third grade, well, up until a few months ago we were.  *rubs temples hard*  I remember our eighth grade dance when she was more interested in surfing than dancing and her mom practically had to yank her out of the ocean and force her into a dress.  I remember how excited she was when I made the varsity football team as a Sophomore; she had everyone in the stands chanting my name every game.  I don’t know, there’s just too many to pick one. 

Now, let’s focus on you for a second.  Describe yourself in five words or less.
Funny, strong, sexy, charismatic, loyal and humble.  Wait that’s six.  Scratch humble.

HA! Humble wasn't really fitting in with the rest of those, anyway. Those are dad on, though...
Can you tell us something about you that we don’t already know?  Any secrets hidden behind your cute face?
*laughs* Well if I told you, they wouldn’t be secrets, would they?  There is this one thing. . . I’m not like Cami, I’m not a pureblood Centaur, but my dad is. 

You don't have to be a pureblood Centaur to be super cool ;)
Now, because it’s fun, describe Cami in five words or less.
I think I’ll use just one, and it’ll be yours, in case she finds out I stopped by for this interview:  stubborn.  Now if she sees this, I’ll blame it on you.

I am okay with this. I like to think if I knew her, we'd be friends... :)
Last question:  can you tell us a little of what to expect in the rest of the series, from an insider’s point of view?
Nancy told me the only thing I could share was that there will be surprises no one will see coming in Centaur Legacy.  Zandra isn’t as evil as everyone thought she was in Blood Debt, but I’m not sure I believe Nancy on that one, because I think Zandra is pure evil.

I don't like Zandra much either. She creeps me out.

Now, pick one!
Water ski or snow ski?  Snow Skiing at Big Bear
Salty or sweet?  Salty
Vanilla or chocolate?  Vanilla Ice Cream with Hot fudge. Ohmygosh, YES.
Morning or night?  Night I am a night owl myself...
Hug or big, giant, bear hug? C’mere, Jessica, and I’ll show you!

All right, thank you so much for stopping by, Daniel.  It was awesome having  you by the blog today! I certainly hope you’ll stop by again soon.  Now give me one of those hugs.  J
Thanks, Jessica for having me today!  I’d love to see you again, just say the word.  *big, giant, bear hug*

And that's it for my interview with Daniel!! I really hope I get to interview him again sometime. Before I let y'all go, wanna know a fun fact? DANIEL IS MINE. Seriously. He is. This is 100% true. Just so you know. ;)
