Before I pen a book I often interview my main characters on paper. It allows me to get to know them, especially before creating sequels. ‘Raunchy‘ was one of my favorite books to write, because of the emotionally complicated characters. Outside of Kelsi from the ‘A Hustlers Son‘ series, no other character touches my heart more than Madjesty Phillips. This interview is before ‘MAD MAXXX: Children Of The Catacombs‘, of course.
Me: How are you?
Madjesty: (no reply)
Me: So you don’t want to talk to me?
Madjesty: I don’t feel much like talking these days. (Pulls black baseball cap over her eyes)
Me: Why not?
Madjesty: I never know why. I stopped digging around in my head a long time ago. Hurts too much I guess. (Picks up Hennessy and downs half of the bottle)
Me: Wow, you sure drink a lot.
Madjesty: Toy, please don’t start with me. As much vodka as you drink.
Me: (no reply)
Madjesty: Now look who’s quiet.
Me: (clears throat) Your fans want to know about you. What do you want me to tell them?
Madjesty: Tell them that I love them. And tell them that I can feel their hopes and prayers for me. Tell them that I’m a survivor, and with a mother like Harmony Phillips, you got to be. (A tear falls down her face, and she brushes it away roughly, before grabbing the rest of the Hennessy and finishing it off)
Me: You miss her don’t you?
Madjesty: I hate that bitch! I’m gonna always hate that bitch, and fuck you for trying to make me feel any different! (Gets up and walks away)
Stay tuned for MAD MAXXX – Children Of The Catacombs. JULY 2013
