Characters from The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire
Josef Ancient Vampire
Peri Young runaway Witch
Where are you from?
Josef:- We live in Las Vegas, USA.
If you could go back in time, to any timeline who would it be and why?
Josef:- You DO know how old I am? Right? That’s a rather silly question for an ancient vampire.
Peri:- Oh don’t be rude Josef, she’s only doing her job! Cleopatra! Can you imagine all those handmaidens tending your every need and bathing in milk – oh maybe not – I don’t like milk!
Gabe:- (Laughing) I think if you’re gonna be Cleo then I’ll be one of those handmaidens!
Do you believe in love at first sight or just lust at first sight?
Josef:- I’m not sure I believe in love at first sight, I’ve only ever loved one woman so it’s rather hard to answer that.
Peri:- Well I know that I’ve definitely felt lust at first sight!
Gabe:- Both, I believe in both. Peri, babe, it was me wasn’t it? Your lust at first sight, was me wasn’t it?
Peri:- Gabe! Behave, Wolf, I’m not saying.
Josef: Absolutely not!
Peri:- I’m perfectly happy with my men. We don’t need anyone else
What are you reading? Tell us a little about the book and why you chose to read this.
Josef:- I’m re-reading some Shakespeare.
Peri:- I’m reading the Immortals series by, hmm, Monica La Porta, yup, that’s right. Her books are amazing. I love them.
Gabe:- Does Playboy count? No? Damn, a book you meant a book didn’t you. Nope, not a reader.
Does Flash Fiction appeal to you and if so can you explain what that attraction is? This particular writing is usually under a thousand words, how do you establish any sort of characterization in that short space, let alone a conflict
Peri:- I have to say I don’t have much experience reading that type of thing. I like a book
I can get drawn into, not sure if I could do that in something that was only a thousand
words. Jeez, it would mean I would be looking for something new to read just about
all the time!
Gabe:- Flash Fiction? Is that a new superhero?
What is the worst question you have ever been asked regarding writing?
Josef:- In what regards? I read, sometimes, but I don’t know anyone that writes.
Peri:- Oh Josef! You are in trouble now with a capital T! Just wait til Ava sees this!
Gabe:- (Laughing) Yup, you’re gonna get written out! Then I’ll have Peri all to myself!
What do you think of the way Ava has portrayed you in the series?
Josef:- I think she’s got me a far too formal. I’m not quite as bad as she depicts.
Gabe:- Yeah, you are, Josef! You are getting better but I think that’s Peri’s influence. Before our love joined us you were the most reserved person I knew!
Peri:- You certainly have changed, Josef. All for the better! I think Ava got us spot on, warts and all.
Name your five (or more) favorite fictional characters (does not matter whether from books, TV, films, or even comics) of all time.
Josef:- Seriously? Is this an interview for a comic book?
Peri:- Josef! You’re being rude again.
Josef:- Sorry, what’s your point, little Witch?
Peri:- I think we should skip this question. Next?
Is there a festive time of the year that you love? What is so special about it?
Josef:- Any time that allows me to spoil Peri.
Peri:- Oh, I love Christmas, and Easter, lots of gifts and usually some fabulous chocolates doing the rounds.
Gabe:- Gotta agree with Jo on this one.
What music are you listening to lately
Josef:- There is one particular piece of classical music that I am rather partial to.
Peri:- Josef! Don’t you dare! I mean it!
Gabe:- Same as Jo but our mate appears to be a little shy on sharing what it is, or why!
Are you in introvert or an extrovert?
Josef:- I would have thought that was glaringly obvious.
Peri:- I would say an introvert, well, before I met these two that is!
Gabe:- I’m definitely an extrovert and proud of it!
Are you a Panster or a planner?
Josef:- Peri, what language is this person using? I have no idea what they’re talking about.
Peri:- You’re a planner, Josef, definitely a planner. Me, I’m a bit of both, depending on the circumstances.
Gabe:- I kinda go with the flow, depends on my mood. I am quite spontaneous, am I not, Peri?
Peri:- Shush, Gabe, don’t you dare embarrass me!

Peri has been running since she was fifteen – using her magic to stay safe. ‘They’ can track her magic tho, so she has to use it sparingly. In Vegas, for a cash in hand job, and things turn nasty! She knows the amount of magic she would have to use to escape unscathed would bring ‘them’ right to her.
Before she can use the vast magic required two males appear and aid her. One a wolf, one an ancient vampire.
Josef, the vampire, and Gabe, the wolf, are more than a little interested in this skinny girl. What ensues shocks both of the strong males – this girl is more than a stray, more than a witch – it looks like she is a mate – for both of them!?
Will Peri stay? Will they keep her safe? Who, if any, of the two will she choose? Just how much power does this stripling of a girl have locked inside her?

Gabe looked at his friend and gave a lopsided grin. “What do you think, Jo, want to help a lady in distress?”
Josef sighed. “This is a new suit, Gabe, do you know how much it cost?” Josef was fingering the material of his made-to-measure suit and frowning.
Gabe laughed. “Come on, live a little!” Gabe chuckled and took off towards the girl, pulling to a stop behind her. She must’ve heard him because her head swung around, and he could see the worry in her eyes, eyes that he almost fell into. Shit, she was gorgeous.
“No need to worry, thought you could do with a hand,” Gabe said, a cheeky grin on his face.
Josef appeared next to him and stared at the men in front. Shit, he was probably going to work up a sweat. His new silk shirt would be ruined.
