Character Interview with Ian Kerr  
from The Darkest Day by Britt Bury

Hi everyone! I’m Britt Bury, author of The Darkest Day and I’m here with Ian Kerr, immortal Pookah warrior and Chief of the Kerr clan. We both want to thank Lori so much for having us! Right, Ian?
Ian: *Sitting, bouncing his knee and looking over his shoulder* “Aye. Can we move this along?”

Britt: *Sitting across from Ian. Leans in and whispers harshly.* “Why are you being so grumpy?”

Ian: “You bloody know why! I’ve got a god-damn Dark Prince Daughter in my dungeon and you pull me away so I can chat about god-knows-what.”

Britt: “Hey! You better watch yourself or I will write your life so miserable that you will be wishing your book was never born.”

Ian: *Throws an arm over the back of his chair and casually leans back.* “Threatening me, lass? Gotta say I like the spark in ya. But nothing your sweet little mind can come up with will compare to the torture ten-lifetimes has already put me through.”

Britt: Including keeping you from your mate?

Ian: *His grin falls and he glares at Britt* 

Britt: *Smiles* “That’s what I thought. Now buck up, be a good Pookah, and answer some questions for our interview please.

Ian: *Waves a hand* “Let’s hear ‘em, lass.”

Britt: *Clears throat* “Where were you born?”

Ian: *Rolls eyes and crossed arms over chest* “Really? That’s what you want ta ask?”

Britt: “These are just warm up questions.”

Ian: “I do no’ have time for this.”

Britt: “Well, what do you want to talk about then, Ian?”

Ian: *Leans forward, resting forearms on knees and leers at Britt* “I want ta know why the hell there is a demon spawn of Satan in my keeping and I can no’ seem ta…get rid of her.”

Britt: “You know the answer to that already, Ian.”

Ian: *Mumbles* “Bloody cryptic author. You’re as bad as Ryo.”

Britt: “You know I love you, Ian. But your stubborn attitude is going to get you into a lot of trouble.”

Ian: “Again with the threats. Do no’ think I can’t weave pretty words too, lass. You may put the pen ta paper, but I can be difficult, and you know it. You want ta meet your deadlines don’t you? Suppose you’ll need the cooperation of your characters ta make that happen, yes?”

Britt: *Huffs and scowls back at Ian.* “My, my what an evil grin you have Mr. Kerr. Here I was thinking you’ve lost your edge.”

Ian: “Throw whatever you want at me, woman. You know I can handle it.” *Winks*

Britt: “Oh, no. Don’t try to charm me.”

Ian: “I would no’ think of it. But tell me, what is it you have in store for all of us? Ryo’s been saying that you intend to—”

Britt: “Ryo needs to shut it.”

Ian: “You seem a bit sensitive about this, lass?”

Britt: “This is supposed to be your interview.”

Ian: *Looks at watch.* “Well, you have time for one more question. I promised you five minutes, now I need ta get back.”

Britt: *Flustered. Flips through papers looking for a good question* “Ooh! Okay, here’s one. Ian, what is the one thing you value above all else?”

Ian: *Jaw clenches* “My clan, of course.”

Britt: *Smiles wide and gives a sarcastic nod* “Of course…”

Ian: *Rises and turns to leave*

Britt: “Thanks, Ian.” *Calls after him as he walks away* “I’ll be seeing you real soon.”

Ian: *Looks over shoulder* “You can bloody count on that, lass.”

That went better than I had hoped! Sorry, Ian gets a bit cranky sometimes. Thank you so much again for having us! We had so much fun!

  7. The concept along got me...it is very unusual that you see a book of this type where the female lead is the last human alive. It is usually reversed. Then add in the snarkiness and scottish accent and I'm hooked.
