An Interview With Chance MacKenzie

Recently, I caught up with the globe trotting hero of my paranormal romance, The Soul Jar [New Concepts Publishing, June 2006]. Mr. MacKenzie was kind enough to grant an interview before jetting off to his next exotic locale. Since he didn’t have a lot of time, I figured I’d cut right to the chase and ask the hard questions up front so all you interested ladies could get to know Mr. Tall Blond and Handsome.

JC: First off, how did you get the name “Chance”?

CM: My first name is actually Mason, but all my friends call me Chance. I’ve been told the name Mason doesn’t fit me. I guess I’m too tall. They started calling me Chance when I was wrestling sharks in Bimini. [Winks]

JC: Sharks? Hmm. You’ve given that up, I hope. What is it you do for a living these days? I’ve heard whispers that you work for the CIA .

CM: Ah...I do as little actual ‘work’ as possible. [Laughs] My business card says “Entrepreneur.” I dabble in antiquities, international security and ‘creative bargaining.’

JC: Where did you get that yummy accent?

CM: Born and raised in New South Wales, Australia but I haven’t been back in a while.

JC: What would you say is your best feature?

CM: If this is a PG rated interview, I can’t tell you.

JC: [Blushing] Your second best feature then?

CM: My eyes. I’ve been told they’re brooding and smoky.

JC: I can’t argue with that. [Drools a bit] Let’s talk about your personality. You’re certainly not a homebody. How would you describe yourself to the opposite sex?

CM: PG rating again?

JC: [Nods] We’ll save the...intimate stuff for another time.

CM: All right, I’d say, I’m well traveled, well read and always looking for adventure. I don’t like to stay in one place long, so be ready to go at a moment’s notice. Breakfast might be in Milan, dinner in Cairo, dessert in Paris.

JC: So a lady has to be ready for anything with you around. Describe your ideal woman.

CM: Is it okay to say I like brunettes? Blue eyed brunettes to be precise. My ideal woman stays calm in the face of danger. She’s smart and self-reliant and ready for anything.

JC: Danger, you say?

CM: It seems to follow me wherever I go.

JC: And where will danger follow you next?

CM: That’s classified, luv.

JC: One final question before you go. Are you available?

CM: [Laughs] Not anymore. I’ve found the woman of my dreams, again. And I’m never letting her go.

JC: [Long suffering SIGH.] Oh well. On to the next hunky hero.

Loved that cover! And the interview {g} Why is it all the hunky ones are spoken for?

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Thanks, Lynda. I know...the good ones get snapped up so fast. We'll have to keep searching for an available hunk. In fact, I'm looking for one to star in my next vampire tale. I'm putting up the wanted ad today.
