Character Interview with Elizabeth and Drake from Heartbeats

Recently I had the chance to interview Elizabeth and Drake from heartbeats for the Musa Publishing Blog.  I donned my BahBahwahwah hat and this is what happened.   Lot’s of tension between these two, to be sure!  Enjoy!

Interview with Elizabeth Iverson and Drake McGuire from heartbeats, by Susan Rae  

 Elizabeth and Drake, thank you for coming to chat with us today. We don’t often get both the hero and heroine together for these chats.  This should be fun.  Can either one of you tell me why you think Susan Rae chose the two of you to represent her today?

 Elizabeth:  I think she just felt that since it’s our story, we would be the best ones to present it.  She chose both of us, I’m sure, because we come at it from different angles.  You see, when the novel begins, it’s been six years since we have seen each other.  We met once in college, and then briefly a few years later, but since then, we have both gone our separate ways. 

 Drake:  Briefly, Elizabeth?  That’s how you’re describing it now?

 Elizabeth:  Well…

 Do I detect some sarcasm there, Drake? 

 Drake:  Let’s just get on with it.

 Okay.  Elizabeth, can you tell us a little about yourself?  You’re a doctor, right?

 Elizabeth:  Yes, I am.

 Did you always want to be a doctor?

 Elizabeth:  Honestly?  As long as I can remember.  You see, I grew up on a farm about forty-five miles from here, in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago.  Thinking back, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t dream about becoming a doctor. When I was little, my Barbie dolls didn’t wear clothes; they wore bandages and tourniquets.  I was always pretending to try out the latest medical procedure on some poor, unsuspecting farm animal—with some very interesting results, as you can imagine.  My parents didn’t have a lot of money, but I made it to the university on a scholarship.  When my dad died of a heart attack while I was in med school, I decided to specialize in cardiology.  That’s my passion, cardiology—both intervention and prevention.  That, and of course, my daughter, Allison—the light of my life.
