Earlier this year, Secret Cravings Publishing, the publisher of my contemporary romance, Change of Address, held a Villain's Day blog hop where the authors introduced the 'villains' of their stories. I chose to interview Caleb Smith. I thought I would share this interview with everyone who might not have seen it yet. I hope you enjoy!
An interview with Caleb Smith from Change of Address
By Natalie-Nicole Bates
I’m pleased today to have the chance to chat with my “villain” from Change of Address, Caleb Smith.
Natalie-Nicole: Caleb, thank you so much for this opportunity to chat. I know you’re anxious to share some of your thoughts and feelings about Josselyn Adler and Ben Parnell.
Caleb: I feel it’s important to clear the air a bit on certain subjects, so I’m happy to spend a few minutes with you.
Natalie-Nicole: It has been suggested that you use your position as a police officer to intimidate certain people in Unity.
Caleb: Are you speaking about Ben Parnell?
Natalie-Nicole: Ben, among others.
Caleb: I am a consummate professional. I have never used my position or sense of authority to intimidate anyone. Ben merely feels threatened by my presence on Josselyn’s life.
Natalie-Nicole: And why do you think that is. I mean, Ben is a successful cancer specialist. From my understanding he is quite an upstanding citizen as well. He and Josselyn seem to be a perfect romantic match.
Caleb: Huh! Upstanding citizen you say? Don’t you know of his recent past? You need to catch up on the facts, Girl. But let me sum up Ben Parnell for you: Haughty, arrogant, and aware of his own self-importance.
Natalie-Nicole: Why do you despise Ben so much?
Caleb: We have a long past together. Let’s just say that Ben was quite the bully way back when.
Natalie-Nicole: So the bullied has now become the bully? You’re getting back at him by trying to drive a wedge between him and Josselyn?
Caleb: Josselyn is a sweet, lovely woman who has had a rough life. She deserves better than Ben Parnell. What I feel for her has nothing to do with my hatred of Ben Parnell.
Natalie-Nicole: But, Caleb, it is true that you’ve been going out of your way to not only poison Josselyn’s mind regarding Ben, but you’ve also been threatening to arrest Ben on more than one occasion.
Caleb: Nonsense. You speak as though Ben is some threat to me. I am the threat to him.
Natalie-Nicole: Well, on that rather frightening note, I will thank you, Caleb, for spending some time with me today. To learn more about Caleb Smith, Josselyn Adler, and Ben Parnell, read Change of Address available now at Sweet Cravings Publishing.
