Today’s 2 Character Interviews come to us via the creative genius of up and coming Author Lexi Miles. Lexi’s first character of these two interviews is Ariel Bowie, the leading lady in her romance novel entitled Click For More.
Ariel Bowie, is in her late twenties and is a successful career focused clothing boutique owner. Ariel has been receiving a lot of pressure from the hens, ladies in her family, to wed—and to do it fast—because wedding is expected for the ladies in the Bowie family. With Ariel’s baby sister’s nuptials approaching, during a late night of rom-com movie watching, Ariel decides it is time to take action and list herself with the wed quick website Click for More. She comes across the oh-so-gorgeous dark haired businessman Cort Abbot, who too has his own reasons to wed, and soon she finds herself married to this sexy stranger and loving every minute of it. But some people aren’t as happy as she is about her new marriage. Will they cause problems in paradise, or will the couple find that some things are meant to last?
So here we are by the ‘plashing waters of the Mediterranean sea, sipping fine wine and enjoying the balmy late summer breeze, chatting away…
Hello, what is your name? Ariel
Does your name have any special significance? No, no specific significance. But, my mother did name my sisters and I names that all begin with the letter “A” for some reason. Why, oh I don’t know because I’ve stopped trying to figure out the rhyme to my mother’s reason. You see with her, I found young, it is best to just go with it. (Giggles)
Where were you born and where do you now reside? I was born in a small town in northern California called Livermore and I still live there. On rare occasions I really love to sneak out to my grandparents’ ranch, which stretches out in all directions and smells of fresh fruit, nestled within beautiful green hills and is two hours away from any civilization.
What internal battles do you struggle with or what would you like to change about yourself? Internally, with my career finally in balance, even though I try not to ever confess this, with so many people pressing me to get married, I’d like to find someone to wed and share every part of myself with. And that includes all of the goofy, quirky and out of sorts parts. And despite the constant pressure, I still want to do it for love and not just because it is time. With all of the pressure around me I struggle to keep the will to do that. But that is a hard limit, I want love. And I want to find it for myself.
What I want to change, is to stop thinking that even though I had a bad past relationship, love isn’t still out there for me. Within I just know that it is. I even have taken measures to list myself with a wed fast website to find it, I figured why not? And so far, now having my eye on a handsome someone’s profile, I am not disappointed. So who knows? (Giggles)
Do you have a personal creed you live by? My favorite aunt, Becky, told me this piece of advice and I live by it. She told me to make choices for myself and for no one else. That I do not have to care what others think of me just so long as I am happy with the choices that I make. And I love that and live by it!
What are you most passionate about and what do you despise most? I am passionate about doing things on my terms. If something is not right for me, I am not doing it—period. I am also passionate about being a good partner and friend to my future husband. A man that I hope to be head-over-heels in love with passionately for the rest of my life!
And what do I despise, honestly people who hurt you and then come back into your life and act as if they have a place and say in it. Hypothetically speaking of course, I was not just talking about my ex, who broke off our wedding a couple days before the ceremony, who just breezed back in town or anything. (Blushes and giggles.)
When and where is your tale set? Right here in the here and now in a small town (at least the older part) of Livermore in California, USA. A place where, in spots, everybody knows everyone. We are very tech savvy and have lovely wineries here on the outskirts of our town. We have a lot of through traffic and visitors headed to the beach toward Santa Cruz, headed south toward Los Angeles, or headed in the other direction completely during the winter ski season toward Nevada’s snow resorts.
Who shares in your adventure and how are they important to you? Aunt Becky and surprisingly my baby sister Abbie are my support. Also along for the ride is my mother, the hens, and my “perfect” cousin Rita. They all nag me relentlessly about tying the knot. And as of recently (fingers crossed) the new handsome guy who is the owner of that online profile from that wed quickly site Click for More that I was telling you about, Cort Abbot. I mean, man is he hot! I see Cort, just from his profile and all that we seem to have in common, being a big part of my future. (Giggles)
What is it you seek to achieve, change or create? I hope to find my match, I want to change my last name (Giggles), and maybe create a happy life with Cort. That is if I get a chance to know him before my family catches the scent of our new relationship.
Thank you so much for having me over to do this. Such a nice location for a chat.

Now it’s time to meet the second character of the two interviews. Lexi’s next character to stop by for an interview is Sunni Vandermoore, the leading lady in her romance novel, Custom Fit.
The beautiful Sunni Vandermoore petite and as spunky as they come, is one of the most sought after style consultants. She is completely put off when her boss Zelina calls her into her office, as if Sunni is a newbie cub, and gives her a last minute emergency assignment. Sunni’s protest comes to a halt when she realizes that she just got the assignment of a lifetime: dressing the ultra-sexy singer/actor Striker Clint for the entire holiday season. The only rule, to avoid termination, no romantic involvement with the client. But Striker is not just any client, Sunni has had it bad for him since she laid eyes on him in one of his earlier films. Are some rules made to be broken?
Okay, how about we get started.
Hello, what is your name? Sunni
Does your name have any special significance? Yes, funny you should ask. I was about to suffer the family name of the long lines of Judiths, but when I was born in the springtime, I got the original name of Sunshine instead. Feel free to call me Sunni, because that is what my friends do. (Giggles)
Where were you born and where do you now reside? I was born in California and still live here in Los Angeles.
What internal battles do you struggle with or what would you like to change about yourself? Opening up to someone romantically. I had a bad experience that I’d rather not have again.
Do you have a personal creed you live by? I don’t know if I can condense it to one statement, because I live by a few. But the gist is that I always try to look for the upside in things I guess.
What are you most passionate about and what do you despise most? I am passionate about doing my job, but having a balance. I like looking out for my friends and also like—love—watching Striker Clint movies. But who doesn’t right?
And, what do I despise. Oh boy did you just open a can of worms: Rude People. One specifically comes to mind. There is this rude girl, Brenda, on my new holiday assignment that is Striker’s publicist-handler or something. I say or something because she’s never really introduced herself officially as of yet. Or maybe I wasn’t listening after the first, second, and third words out of Brenda’s mouth were all insults to me. (Giggles) And I am not too fond of another girl, Francie, I work with who is always trying to compete with me. And I have to add one more person. A weasel guy I came across in the past that is an actor, I’d rather not mention by name, who I just can’t stand—at all.
When and where is your tale set? Present day Los Angeles California.
Who shares in your adventure and how are they important to you? My long time group of friends, who pop in here and there, that all keep me focused, positive, and call me on things. My boss/mentor Zelina who I’ve worked with for years drives me professionally. Striker’s house manager Groans, who is totally unaware of his nickname, is always there when I need to ask a question. The jury is still out on if he likes me or not. Either way, his oddness and groaning makes me laugh. My new make-up artist friend Kitty who has been showing me the ropes. And of course, the oh-so-gorgeous Striker that I am very much into and would not mind being his romantic interest off-screen. (Giggles)
What is it you seek to achieve, change or create? Not getting fired. I have a feeling that it is going to be a difficult feat to keep things strictly professional with Striker. Change my relationship with Striker to anything but professional, but that is only if it wouldn’t cost me everything. As far as create, new rules so that I can date Striker. Haha! Okay seriously now, I secretly have developed designs for a clothing line and I would love for my boss Zelina to back it. I wouldn’t quit what I do, because I love it too much, I would just wear more hats. (With us talking about fashion, I must say that I am only talking figuratively here as in I won’t be wearing hats. Giggles)
Thank you so much for this opportunity to talk with you. I had a wonderful time.
