Welcome back to Day 4 of My Birthday Bash! (See Day 1 here, Day 2 here, and Day 3 here) Today we are graced with the presence of the mad man himself, the always sexy Dex Foray from Karina Halle’s Experiment in Terror Series! (See my review for books 1-5 here, Old Blood here, and The Dex Files here) We love him, we hate him, he drives us crazy, and he is a cocky bastard at times. But we wouldn’t have him any other way.
Also, At the end of the interview there is a giveaway for a copy of The Dex Files, which came out August 13th! Though, if you have not read everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) in the Experiment in Terror Series, don’t read it yet. If you do win, and haven’t read the previous books, you can select another one of the books in the series. I need more people on this crazy train with me!
Laura: Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy life, and boy has it been busy, to spend a few minutes with me, Dex. For those few people that don’t know you, why don’t we start with you telling everyone a little about yourself.
Dex: Sigh. OK. Well, for those who don’t know, I’m the brains behind Experiment in Terror, a little ghost-hunting show I do for the Shownet website.
Laura: How did you first get involved with Shownet? Have you only worked on Wine Babes and Experiment in Terror or have there been other shows? And while it may be an obvious question, which show has been your favorite to work on, and why?
Dex: Whoa, whoa, whoa woman. One question at a time! What was the first one? Right. Shownet. I’ve been there for a few years now. Only worked on those two shows. And yeah, that’s as obvious as fuck. But I’ll throw you a bone: Experiment in Terror has been my favorite by far. And why? Again, too obvious of an answer, Ms. Red Riding Hood.
Laura: Yes yes. Moving on … I believe having a list of someone’s favorite things can tell you a lot about that person. So, rapid fire style, what are/is your favorite:
ice cream flavor?
time of day?
Alice in Chains.
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Laura: Wait, I am confused. Is Pistachio your favorite color or ice cream flavor?
Laura: Any other piercings, other than the eyebrow?
Dex: Would you like to find out for yourself?
Laura: Maybe … I will get back to you on that. *grins* If you could do anything for one day, what would you do?
Dex: My hobby.
Laura: *clears throat* Oh. Um. *awkward silence* Who got possession of your dog, Fat Rabbit, after the break up with Jenn?
Dex: No one owns Fat Rabbit. Fat Rabbit owns YOU.
Laura: I totally get that. My chihuahua, who I lovingly call “Fat Sausage,” because, well, he looks like a fat little sausage, runs the house. Moving on … Using only three words, describe Perry.
Dex: Like, in a sentence? To die for. Or do you mean three different words? If so, then boobs, butt and bravery.
Laura: Ok, these questions may get a little personal, so feel free not to answer (but I REALLY hope you do!) What was your first reaction when you found out about what had happened with Perry after she left your apartment and you didn’t hear from her for months?
Dex: Oh shit.
Laura: When I heard, I had the same reaction. I can only imagine what went through your head. Especially after that night. Speaking of the night she left, why the hell did you say those horrible things? I mean, I forgive you, but do you think she ever will be able to fully get past that?
Dex: No idea what you’re talking about. NEXT QUESTION.
Laura: I think you know, when you kicked her out of your apartment but I will let you keep your secrets. I just wish you would share, to clear the air. And no, I didn’t mean to rhyme that.
Dex: Perhaps you should take up poetry instead of journalism.
Laura: Um, yeah … no. Anyway … Tell us how you really feel about the ginger. And is it just that particular guy, or all gingers. I should warn you, I myself am a ginger. *glares menacingly*
Dex: Hey, I love gingers. LOVE them. I’m all about red-headed fire, especially if it’s of the female variety and on all fours in front of me. *winks at Laura* But as for that ginger, I think he can take his Cajun charm and shove it up his giant ass. *shrugs* I have reasons.
Laura: *blush* That was a bit … informative. Where do you hope things go from here? Not where do you think they will go, but what do you want to happen?
Dex: What? As in life? I hope life goes on, if that helps.
Laura: Well, I meant specifically with the show and Perry, but it is good to know that you want to keep on living. Can you give one piece of advice to my readers.
Dex: Tell doubt to fuck off and take a risk on something.
Laura: Anything else you would like to add?
Dex: Not really. What are you doing later?
Laura: Whoa there buddy. As cute as you are I am a taken woman. If only we had met when I was in college …
Dex: I wasn’t asking you out. I was hoping you could give me a ride home. My car is in the shop.
Laura: Oh, sorry. Sure, though it is several days from the south east to the north west. But I would imagine a road trip with you would be anything but boring. Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with me today. I really hope things turn out the way you want them to.
Well now … I am all flustered and frustrated and all sorts of other f-words after that interview. He is just so intense …
