Character Interview - Hartley from Deadly Cool (+ Giveaway)

Today,  Hartley from Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday is joining us today.  Make sure to check out the giveaway after reading the interview.

1. Hi Hartley! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to join us
today. What five words would your best friend, Sam, use to describe you?

Hi!  Thanks for having me here!  Okay, five words Sam would use to describe me…
1. loyal
2. caring
3.clever (Okay, maybe I'm putting words in her mouth here, but we did eventually track down a killer all by ourselves, so I'm gonna take a couple clever points.)
4. fun
5. tenacious

2. What first attracted you to Josh DuPont?

Dude, what wasn't attractive about him?  Like, every girl in school wanted to be with him.  He's got the total classic hot guy looks and totally great smile that could charm the pants off any girl.  Unfortunately, it has charmed the pants off a few girls.  Which is why I am no longer, officially, as of now, attracted to him.  (Much.) 
3. Good ol' Ben & Jerry pop up a few times while you were trying to clear
Josh's name. What's your favorite ice cream flavor?

Hands down, Cherry Garcia.  The blend of rich chocolate and light cherries is beyond awesome.

4. If you were forced to choose (pretend everyone had to be one or the
other), would you be a cheerleader or join the Color Guard?

Ohmigod, nightmare alert!  I'd sooner throw myself off the top of the parking structure at the mall than do either.  But, if I had to pick one… cheerleader.  At least they wear their skankiness right out there where you can see it.  The Color Guard girls are more closet skanks.  (Or in the case of Courtney Cline, the Color Guard leader, a dead skank in a closet.)

5. So Chase was just full of surprises! What was the most surprising thing
you learned about him?

I'll admit, I totally had him pegged wrong.  When I first met him, I thought total Bad Boy.  I mean, not that he doesn’t really kinda act like the proverbial Bad Boy at times, but as we investigated Courtney's death together, I found out that there is a lot more to him than that.  I guess the thing I was most surprised to find out about him is that he has a soft side.  (And soft lips, too, but that's a whole other story…)

6. Okay, one last thing before you go; You did a great job with helping to
find the real murderer, would you ever consider becoming a private
investigator ala Veronica Mars?

You know, the best thing about figuring out who actually killed Courtney was the satisfaction of fitting all the right puzzle pieces into the right slots and seeing it actually bring a killer to justice.  The worst part, though, was having my life in danger.  More than once.  I'm not totally a fan of that, so I'm not sure I have the guts it takes to be a real PI. For now, I'm going to stick to working on the school paper and investigating thing like what really goes into the school cafeteria's Monday Mystery Meat.  At least until another big story comes along…
