Interview with Trey

In honor of my upcoming third book in the Twisted Bloodlines series, I've decided to interview Trey, since he is the main character featured in the book.

Me : If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only task was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?

Trey : Well, I would have to say I'd pretty much do what I always do. My responsibilities are to defend against any attack, and I do so, love to battle. I also enjoy a good death mission when it comes my way, they are extremely entertaining, so really, I tend to enjoy myself everyday.

Me : Okay then, how about what impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they've known you for a while?

Trey : Usually when people first meet me, they think I'm cocky and arrogant. As for after they've known me for a while, their opinion of me is still the same, if not worse.

Me : I can imagine. So what do you most like/dislike about your appearance?

Trey : Hmm my appearance, well look at me. What's to dislike?

Me : Um, moving on. Do you think you've turned out the way your parents expected?

Trey : Definitely not. I think my parents were hoping for a relatively normal son. One which they could show off and be proud of, instead they were rewarded with an unstable, sexually confused heir to their bloodline. I'm not exactly someone to be proud of and represent the family name.

Me : I'm sure they don't see it that way, you're their son, their flesh and blood, surely that's all that matters.

Trey : Yeah, you haven't met my parents. Next question.

Me : Okay, what is your favorite occupation?

Trey : Favorite occupation? Hmm, I can't quite decide between causing trouble in the household, or battling to the death. Both are my favorite occupations, as well as full time jobs.

Me : Right, well how about talents then? Which talent would you most like to have?

Trey : Honestly, I already have all the talent I need. Can't you tell?

Me : Of course, how silly of me to have asked. What about achievements. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Trey : My greatest achievement would be finally finding my mate. That is something which I never thought possible, and I wouldn't change it for the world.

Me : Congratulations on that. In your world of many enemies, which person do you most despise?

Trey : I despise many people, but as I'm sure you can already guess, it would have to be Deacon. I've never come across any lower life form than that evil b***ard.

Me : Well I did suspect he would be on your list. Okay, how about your greatest fear?

Trey : My greatest fear is losing my mate. I will fight to the death to avoid that happening.

Me : I'm sure you would. What are you most ashamed of in your life?

Trey : I think that question is obvious. Forcing a bond onto Megan is what shames me the most, if I could reverse my stupidity, I would.

Me : Well I didn't want to comment, but I did suspect that would be your response. Tell me about your best friend. How did you meet? What do you like about this person? What do they like about you?

Trey : Megan is my best friend. Since the day she arrived in my life a total messed up wreck, I've looked out for her. She was the one person who didn't judge me, Megan took my arrogance with a pinch of salt and despite my mistake, she still risked her safety to come and find me. I couldn't tell you what Megan likes about me, although if anything I only added to her problems.

Me : I can tell you two are very close, I'm glad things have worked out between you. I know you are already mated, but could you describe your ideal mate?

Trey : An ideal mate for me, would have to hold a sense of humor, also a very cheeky side to match my own. Adventurous in the bedroom is a must, and they also have to be able to stand up to me. There's no room for a weak and timid mate in my life. Lucky for me, I've already found my perfect match.

Me : I'm glad to hear it, you seem to be quite a handful. So moving on, What's the most important thing in your life? What do you value the most?

Trey : Well obviously the most important thing in my life is my mate. Despite not getting on too well with my family, I'd still have to say I value them the most, and Megan also falls under that category.

Me : So family is important to you. What about life at the moment? What, if anything, would you like to change?

Trey : My life right now is perfect. Some would say that it shouldn't be, with all the chaos surrounding my daily life, but I enjoy the challenge. Would I change anything? The answer to that, would be no.

Me : Given your previous responses, I can understand that. How about where you would like to live?

Trey : There's no particular place I would like to live, but I don't intend on remaining with the panthers forever. Once this war is dealt with, I will take my mate and find a place of our own.

Me : That's probably for the best, given your new development, which everyone is soon to find out. On what occasion would you lie?

Trey : I don't lie, the truth is much more interesting. Sugarcoating facts is not my thing, if I have something to say then I will.

Me : Honesty is the best policy I suppose. How about possessions? What is your most treasured possession?

Trey : I don't really have a treasured possession as such, I love music so I guess you could say my I-POD, but it is my fifth replacement. I tend to spend most of the time crashing into things through battle, so its definitely not treasured.

Me : If you put it that way, I can see your point. A strange question here, how would you like to die?

Trey : I would like to die in battle. Going out peacefully isn't really my thing, and since I'm fairly hard to kill, unless you can get close enough to decapitate me, then I think I'll be sticking around for a very long time.

Me : I figured your response would be something along those lines. Do you have any heroes?

Trey : I don't really have a hero, if I admire anyone, that would be Peter. He puts up with all of us and welcomed me into his home, despite me being the most despised person among us. He even finances anything I need, no questions asked.

Me : I had the pleasure of interviewing Peter on a previous occasion, he is a very generous and patient man. We've already discussed death, what would you like it to say on your tombstone when the occasion finally arrives?

Trey : 'I will rise again' that sounds kind of cool and a little creepy, definitely something to scare the kids hanging out in the cemetery at night.

Me : It's definitely an usual thing to put on a tombstone. Last question, what is your motto?

Trey : 'Failure isn't an option' it's a choice' that is the motto I live by.

Me : It definitely fits your personality. Well thank you for your time Trey, its been an interesting interview. I'll let you get back to your day.

Trey : Thanks for having me, it's been entertaining.

So that's the end of our interview. I really enjoyed the questions I chose to ask him. Trey is my favorite character, and I know some of the readers have claimed the same. I hope you enjoyed reading it, Trey is featured in the first two books of the series, and a main character in the third which is soon to be released :)


  1. First time I've seen your blog and loved reading it. What a great idea and I'm now intrigued to read your books, Linda.

    1. Thanks Janet, I'm glad you enjoyed reading it :) I'm trying to help the readers identify with the characters a little more, there is only so much you can put into a book, without it becoming boring :)
