Today, I’m interviewing J.A. Kazimer’s hero, Blue Reynolds, from The Fairyland Murders on Cocky Confessions.
Welcome Blue, tell us a little about yourself. I’m a PI. Yeah, it’s not nearly as glamorous as it sounds, so hold the applause. Most of my clients are fairies, and we all know how those winged-devils can be. My latest case involves one particular half-human, half-fairy chick with pink-wings. Her name is Isabella Davis, but I call her Izzy. She’s fairly well known in Fairyland, mostly because she’s their go-to gal for pilfered teeth, also known as the Tooth Fairy. We met after her fairy ‘uncles’ hired me to solve her apparent kidnapping. I wasn’t too sure to think about her at first, but she kind of grew on me, like that damn wooden kid with that nose.
LOL. Do you have a fetish? If so, what is it? Wings. I have a thing for wings.
Wings are very cool. Do you rely on your physical prowess or your intelligence to attract a lover? Intelligence? Really? Chicks dig that? Can’t say I know many princesses looking for a price charming with a big…brain. I do all right in the lady department. My blue-hair and other ‘attributes’ keep the princess crowd coming back for more.
It that a natural shade or does only your stylist know? Just kidding. What’s something you’ve done that could have landed you in prison? I’ve been in and out of the joint a few times, mostly when a case goes sideways and I have to fry an informant or two. Did I mention I’m cursed? No? Guess I should’ve said so before now, but here it is, if I’m not wearing protection (leather gloves outside the bedroom, electrical tape within) as soon as my skin makes contact with another, they end up with upwards of fifty thousand volts rocketing through them. Sometimes my curse comes in handy. Then again, my dates often complain about third degree burns on their things after a midnight rendezvous.
So you’re a shocking lover. Where were you when you lost your virginity? My cherry got popped when I was 14, right there in Sister Mary’s room at the orphanage. Mind you, I wasn’t doing Sister Mary, not that she didn’t look hot in her nun’s habit.
Love living on the edge, too. 😉 How do you stay fit? Whiskey. Lots of it. Purely for medicinal reasons, mind you.
What’s the hottest thing a lover has ever said to you? Izzy once asked, “How do you feel about dental floss?” And then she proceeded to tie me up in her favorite minty brand. Of course, she right after she tied me up, she left the apartment. Took me an hour to gnaw my way free. Not quite the happy ending I expected.
You’re funny. What intrigues you most about your lover? Besides her pink wings? I dig the way you never know what she’s thinking. Or if I’ll survive the night.
Do you have a hobby? Who has time for hobbies? I’m too busy trying to make enough dough to keep in living the fairytale.
Name your most comfy article of clothing? My really big gun.
Sounds like it’s needed in your line of work. What’s the most interesting place you’ve taken your lover? While working the Fairyland Murders case, we spent quite a bit of time in Fairyland. Not that it was all that interesting. Up until a crazed serial killer tried to murder both of us. My missing tooth still aches when it rains. Izzy says I have to take her someplace nice next year. I wonder how she’d feel about a trip to Wonderland?
A favorite place you’d like to travel. I always wanted to visit Wonderland, strictly for research purposes. You know what they say, what happens in wonderland…usually takes a shot of penicillin to cure.
If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? I’ve been searching for a way to end my curse since the first time I burned down Our Lady of the Tramp Orphanage when I was 8. It was an accident. Sometimes I just have no control over the electricity burning inside me.
Great interview, Blue. Hope you rid your curse and Izzy and you have some easier times on the way.
Blue Reynolds knows the darker side of New Never City–the side that’s hopped-up on fairy dust and doesn’t care if your house gets blown down. Rent’s due and his PI business is all but make believe. But even Blue shudders at having to chase after Isabella Davis, a freckle-nosed redhead five feet tall on her tip-toes…if you don’t count the pretty pink wings.
Izzy is tough, and sneaky, and not too thrilled with the idea of being the new tooth fairy. The last six have been most gruesomely extracted. But Blue has a feeling that whoever is killing the tooth fairies is worse than your standard big bad psycho. The fairy council is hiding something. The Shadows are moving out into the light. And Blue is saddled with a shocking power that could take out half of New Never City…
