Character Interview for Forever Doomed Book Tour

2 Mar


I’m hosting a character interview with detective Jack Harney, a character from mystery novel “Forever Doomed”. Enjoy!

Detective Jack Harney:

1)      Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?

My name is Jack Harney. I’m a former homicide detective. I’ve agreed to do an old friend a favor, take over his job as head of security on a cruise ship. Should be fun. I could really use a vacation.

2) What is your favorite hobby?

Hiking. I love to get out into nature and just walk. That’s the thing I’ll miss the most while on the cruise.

3) What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?

I’m trying to get over a woman, isn’t that always the case? Yep, she broke my heart. I moved across the country and I still can’t forget her. Hoping this new job might help.

4) If you could make one wish, what would it be?

Do you want the smart ass answer, or the serious one? Fine, I think I’d wish for the ability to go back in time. If I could, I might never have asked out Amy O’Brian.

5) Tell us a secret about you.

I’m kind of a junk food junkie. I’m told there’s to be a baked goods competition on board the ship. I might have to volunteer to be a judge.

About The Book

Forever_Doomed_ebook_amazon_BrighterTitle: Forever Doomed

Author: MaryAnn Kempher

Genre: Mystery

It’s not wise to wander the cruise ship Forever alone at night. You might not live to see daylight.

Detective Jack Harney agrees to do an old Army buddy a favor. Curt Noble had some personal business to attend to, he didn’t say what. What he did say was he needed someone to temporarily take over his duties as head of security on the struggling cruise ship Forever. Jack hesitates, but he owes Curt his life so agrees. He’s told the worst mischief he can expect to encounter will be the occasional shoplifter, or drunk. Instead, one week into the cruise, a beautiful red head and a member of the crew are ruthlessly murdered. Are the two murders connected? It’s up to Jack to find out. He must find the killer before the ship returns to Tampa’s port, or worse, before another dead body is found. This won’t be easy. The ship is old, it’s security systems outdated, and clues are few, or so it seems at first

It’s not just a sense of obligation that motivates Jack to agree to Curt’s request; Jack moved thousands of miles, started over, and still can’t get Amy O’Brian out of his heart or mind. When she shows up on the ship, as part of a large wedding party, Jack must fight to stay focused. To make matters worse, Amy isn’t his only distraction; a sexy and mysterious woman has made it her mission to seduce Jack.

As the body count rises, and time slips away, Jack has to ask himself, “Did someone commit the perfect crime?”
