Character Interview with Restraint and Revelation’s Callan St. Michael.

Since The Revelation Series’s Callan St. Michael is fast becoming a fan favorite, we thought it would be a lot of fun to have an interview with him today. Most of these questions come directly from the readers. We hope by having him answer them, you will get to know him a little better.

Me: Hi Callan. Thanks so much for being here today.
Callan: Thanks for having me. I’m very happy to be here.

Me: Why don’t we start with something easy. Can you tell readers a little more about yourself?
Callan: Sure. My name is Callan St. Michael. I’m a protector with the London clan of gargoyles, along with my brother’s Keegan and Asher. Our current assignment is to protect Eve Collins. I’m currently mated to my girl, Abby Connor. I have blue eyes, brown hair and I’m a Leo. Oh, and I also love Reeses Peanut Butter cups. Freezing them though is the key to my heart. Just a little tidbit for all the ladies out there (winks in amusement).

Me: Speaking of Abby, I’m sure that the readers would love to learn how you and she met.
Callan: be honest...she threw mud at me. In all fairness, it was in retaliation to my telling her, at five- years old, I didn’t play with girls. She flat out got pissed and threw the mud right in my face. I totally started balling because it got in my eye and if you’ve ever had mud in your eye, you know it stings. Anyway, she immediately said she was sorry. Then took my hand in hers before kissing me on the cheek and vowing it would be all right, I was in love. That is, until she screamed Vivian (my mom’s name) and Mom loudly in my ear until both came running. Then, I found her annoying and ignored her until we got older. (releases soft laugh)

Me: That’s adorable. How do you like Eve? Since the rest of you have known one another for a long time?
Callan: Eves is a great addition to the family. We’re lucky to have the opportunity to protect her even though she and Asher are driving us all a little crazy at the moment. Plus she likes my cookies, and no, that’s not a metaphor. (smirks mysteriously).

Me: Readers are curious as to where you get your aprons. Do you have them made?
Callan: Ah...the aprons. Not to be vague, but I know someone. Though Keegan and Asher make fun of me for wearing them, I think they’re sexy. Am I right readers? (shoots a seductive look out)

Me: You’re brothers are each very different in personality than you. How do you all get along?
Callan: Well we’re brothers, we just get one another. Keegan and Asher can both be intense. In our line of work, letting your guard down can mean a whole lot of trouble. Keegan is really smart and excellent in strategy so at times I think that makes him come across as rigid. Asher is just broody and dark. Even before he met Eves. Now that she’s in the picture, he’s all kinda of emotionally unstable. I just run with the punches because no matter what, it’s us against the world.

Me: It’s rumored that there is a, certain piercing, shall we say, that Asher has. Is it true he got the piercing because he lost a bet with you?
Callan: Yes. That’s all I’m gonna say about that. (throws me a boyish grin)

Me: Anything you can share with us about what happens to your character in Restraint (book #2)?
Callan: Nothing specific. The author, Randi Cooley Wilson, she doesn’t allow us to say too much. She’s afraid we’ll ‘spoil’ her plot or twist and the reader won’t be surprised. I will say this, I have a new apron.

Me: (Laughs) Well, thanks so much for being here Callan.
Callan: A big thanks to all the readers who have read and fell for Revelation and hopefully, Restraint. I’m also extremely grateful to everyone who is TEAM CALLAN because it gets annoying listening to Asher boast about how everyone just LOVEEESSS him, and is all team Asher. So, thanks for having me today instead of him.

 "Sleep Over" - Asher and Eve, Restraint Excerpt
I’m brushing my teeth when Asher swaggers into the bathroom. He leans his hip against the counter and just watches me. It’s starting to freak me out. I squint at him before spitting.
     “Can I help you?”
     “Huh?” he asks.
     “You’re staring.” I tip my toothbrush at him.
     “Am I?” He tilts his head to the side and crosses his arms.
     I spit one last time and start my flossing routine and gargle my mouth rinse, all while Asher just stands there, observing me. Seriously, what’s he doing?
     “Curious about dental care?”
     “Curious about you,” he shoots back.
     He shrugs. “I like watching you do normal, everyday things.”
     I blink. “Did you get clocked in training today?”
     “No.” He slides his hands into the pockets of his pajama bottoms. “Want to have a sleep over?”
     “Sleepover?” I repeat, less than enthused.
      “Pajamas, pillow fights, gossip. You know, sleepover,” he clarifies, like I’m an idiot.
      I sigh. “You’re freaking me out. What the hell is going on?”
      He reaches for me and grabs the hem of my tank top, pulling me towards him. I stumble a bit and have to place my hands on his shoulders for balance as he tugs me closer. “I want you in my bed tonight. I was hoping you’d fall asleep in my arms.” His eyes lock onto mine.
