Nick Forrester agreed to stop my blog today and I couldn’t be more pleased. What better way to spend Halloween than with a handsome man? Welcome, Nick!
Tell us a bit about Caper Magic. As you can see by the blurb, I came to Cape Brendan to help my Uncle Hank run this annual lunacy called Caper Madness. He’s not been feeling well and I needed to spend some time with him before . . . you know.
Been there, done that. What did you think the first time you saw Nunie Doyle? That she had the longest legs in the known universe.
Not bad, kid. And your second thought? I wondered how that velvet fall of hair would feel as it brushed against my skin.
Did you think it was love at first sight? Hell no. Once she opened her mouth and that Irish brogue sang out, a nasty tingle ran up my back. Then Hank said her name. Never in a million years did I think I’d run into the Crone of Crozier College in the middle of Cape Brendan. Believe me, her legs could stretch from here to Long Island; her hair could burn me live with its fire. Love is the last emotion I’d ever feel for this . . . dame.
What do you like most about her? As it turns out, she’s got more guts than most guys I know, and more integrity. She’s a wonder, my Nunie.
How would you describe her? Caring, tireless, gutsy, loyal. Forgiving.
How would she describe you? A skeeving git.
What made you choose legal investigations as a second career? I retired from the Syracuse Police Department a few years ago but boredom set in real soon. One of the biggest law firms in town hired me as Chief Investigator. The pay is good; it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars; plus, it pays the rent. And I’m rarely bored.
What is your biggest fear? That I’ll lose Uncle Hank before I have the opportunity to tell him how much I respect, admire and revere him for all he did for me and my sister when we were abandoned by our parents.
How do you relax? When I figure that one out, I’ll let you know.
Who’s your favorite fictional character and why? Mitch Rapp, the CIA operative in the political thriller series conceived by the late Vince Flynn. The man has an ego as big as all outdoors with a heart to match. I’m so sorry there won’t be any new adventures for old Mitch.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received? On the day I graduated from the police academy Uncle Hank told me to listen to my gut, then my heart and make a decision. Don’t drag your ass, boy, he said. If it’s not the best decision you’ll always have the opportunity to go back and make things right.
Thanks, Nick. Can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store for you in the next Cape Brendan story.
Unh oh. Do I get antsy now or wait?
We’ll let you know.

Nick sounds like a perfect hero. Yummy. And I can almost hear the sparks fly between Nunie and him. Ooh my! He sounds like he’s loaded down with a lot of baggage and suffers from a heavy heart, yet he’s sensitive to the people who really count. Caper Magic is sure to be a fantastic read. Can’t wait–it’s on MY list to read. It was so nice meeting you, Nick. Now I have to know what he looks like and how he’s going to handle that Irish lass. I think he’s doomed. Thanks for a great blog.
thanks so much for stopping by. Sorry it’s taken me so long to check for comments. These craft shows are making me nuts.
anyway–you have Nick nailed down pat.
Yes, I agree with Beverly, Nick’s in for trouble with this Nunie. Delightful trouble. Enjoyed reading his take! Happy Halloween!
he was such fun to write–almost as much as Nunie
glad you’re enjoying this blog tour with the two of them
what a delightful interview. Nick sounds like a dandy, macho guy, all right 🙂 Nunie’s got her work cut out for her!
thanks for stopping by. Yep, Nick’s about as macho as can be–I think they both have their work cut out.
I’d like to meet your character Nick–sounds like a manly man with a good dose of intelligence and empathy–perfect combination! Good luck with Caper Magic!
To meet Nick you must watch reruns of The Closer and/or Major Crimes on TNT. He’s based on the actor Tony Denison. The first time I saw the man on screen I KNEW he’d be in one of my books–and here we are.
thanks for stopping by
Just got a copy for my Kindle. Can’t wait to start reading!
Very cool. Thanks, Leah. Hope you enjoy the story.
This guy has already caught my interest.
coming from the woman who writes older, sexy men, that is a high compliment. Thanks for stopping by. Miss you, pal
