Dead Running & Dying to Run by Cami Checketts: Character Interview


 





Character Interview – Cassidy Christensen
Cassidy is the quirky heroine of Dead Running and Dying to Run.

Hi Cassidy.  Thanks for visiting with us today!  I am excited to get this chance to pepper you with my questions.... LOL   Where do you dream of traveling to and why?

Anywhere in the Caribbean. I love heat and water and am dying to have my hair braided into those tiny braids. Get my hair out of my face and not have to do it, while swimming in the ocean every chance I get? Sign me up.

Who is your favorite author?

Cami Checketts. Haha, had to say that or she’d make me look really stupid in my next book. Seriously, I love J.K. Rowling. I know, I hate to be a groupy but she did a fabulous job with Harry, Ron, and Hermoine plus Fred and George busted me up. I love any author who can make me laugh: Rachael Anderson, Barbara Park, Matthew Buckley, and Meg Cabot are the only ones I can think of at the moment.

What do you think makes a good story?

Lots of action, humor, and at least one hot man to keep me turning the pages.


What was the scariest moment of your life?

I have to pick one? I would say watching my dad get knifed by Panetti. I’ve been through some awful moments, but nothing is worse than thinking your dad is going to die.


What is your favorite meal?

Coldstone Chocolate Devotion. Who needs real food when you can eat ice cream?
 

Tell us about your favorite restaurant.

CafĂ© Sabor. It’s a converted train station: classic wood with fun, bright colors and the best Mexican food you’ll find anywhere. My favorite is the chipotle chicken burrito. 


If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?

That guy I threw up on at my one and only high school track meet. I mean he really shouldn’t have been standing there, but that was pretty nasty.

Who should play you in a film?

Megan Fox. She is so pretty, I would love to think I look anything like her, and I think she deserves a hot guy like Dr. Tattoo or Damon. Shia LaBeouf is cute, but nothing compared to my men.

What makes you happy?

Spending time with my nephew, Tate. He is flipping hilarious and he thinks I’m the coolest. Love how little kids become my best friends with just a few candy bribes.

What one word best describes you?

Adorkable, at least that’s what some crazy blogger guy said I was. I’m assuming that means he was jealous of my wicked sense of humor.

Do you have a favorite quote, quip, or saying? What is it?

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.
- Nelson Mandela






Dead Running



Cassidy Christensen is running.

Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.

Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.

Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.



With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she'll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future.




Dying to Run


Cassidy Christensen wants to run.



Captured by the traffickers who killed her mother, her only hope is Dr. Tattoo, a man she loves but nobody trusts. When she finally gets a chance to run, someone else she cares about is taken. Running might be her only chance at survival, but she won’t allow another family member to be killed in her place.



This must-read sequel to Dead Running will have you laughing, biting your nails, and hoping for more.
