Character Interview The Legacy Series Book Tour

27 Oct


Today I’m interviewing Queenie Beasley, one of the characters from multicultural romance “The Legacy Series”. Welcome to The Book Daily, Queenie!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

A: Good Morning Shuga! My name is Mrs. Queenie Beasley. I am 80 years old and I live in a small town outside of Atlanta Georgia. I come from a long line of successful men and women. My husband’s name was Shep Beasley we were married for 51 years before his passing (Lord rest his soul) I have 3 children, Jason, Jennifer and Jackson. I lost my Jason to serving his country twenty years ago and I lost my Jennifer to breast cancer 5 years ago. My son Jackson is a monument to what will happen when you take a sip of moonshine when you are 3 months pregnant.

What is your role in the story?

A: I support my grand baby Shelby, she is such a dear heart. With what her father and mother have put her and her siblings through their whole lives. I hope my role is one of great support and love to all 3 of them.

What is your favorite hobby?

A: Oh Darling I am too old to have a hobby at this point in my life. Unless sitting in my porch in the shade watching my delicious gardener work in the yard while sipping a mint julep is a hobby. If so then that is my favorite hobby in my old age. When I was young girl I was a superb tennis player.

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

A: Not slapping the cowboy piss out of my son Jackson! Wait are your readers going to be offended by my language? If so I apologize dear but I am too old to filter my speech.

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

A: Oh sweetheart I stopped wishing for things a long time ago. I am a very rich and powerful woman. When I want something… I get it.
