Today our special guest is Dixon de Champagne from Celia Breslin's novel, Haven.
Thanks for joining us, Dixon. Tell us, what is your ultimate goal?
::rides up on his motorcycle:: Hello luv, good to be back on your blog for another go ‘round. I do love an audience for my wicked machinations. ::grins, flashing fangs:: My goal is, as always, to torment the bloody hell out of The Warden. You may know him as Carina’s uncle Thomas. That pompous wanker wronged my family centuries ago. And now, it will be my pleasure to take away what he loves most in the world. That’s Carina, of course. ::revs his bike engine, silver eyes glowing:: I will own her, body and soul.
What do you see as your greatest obstacle?
Her mentor, the Executioner. That bloody tosser Jonas watches over her with the tenacity of a father wolf protecting its pup. But, just between you and me, luv… ::winks:: I have a plan to circumvent him….shh… ::presses a pale finger to his bloodred lips::
Pick an historical figure and compare yourself to him or her– how are you alike and different?
::chuckles:: Ah, pet, but I am a historical figure. Do you have any idea how many centuries I’ve lived? The wars I’ve fought? I suppose, if we must compare, I’d say, my former associate Rudianos, god of war worshipped by the Gauls. He was quite fond of decapitating his enemies. We are both driven and ruthless warriors. Our big difference: he has faded into memory, while I continue to thrive!
Name a song that would be played in the soundtrack of your life.
“This Corrosion,” by Sisters of Mercy.
Always a pleasure to have you with us, Mr. Dixon. And now, if you'd like to know more about Haven:
San Francisco nightclub owner Carina Tranquilli works hard, plays hard, and never allows the death of her parents and her twelve-year memory gap to get her down. But her life takes a left turn when a witch attacks her on her twenty-fifth birthday.
Three hauntingly familiar vampires emerge to reveal she possesses a latent power. To protect her from their enemies, they admit to wiping her memories clean and abandoning her as a child, but now they need her help. As she struggles to evade her new protectors and even newer enemies, she meets Alexander, an enigmatic, undead musician. Insta-lust flares, leaving her wanting more.
With evil’s minions hounding her every move, and everything she thought she knew turned on its head, Carina must harness her burgeoning power, unravel her vampire family’s web of deceit, and fight to have a love life...without getting killed in the process.
