Hello and welcome!
Today I have the 6th guest from the “Highland Flames” anthology.
What is your full name?
Magnus Diarmid MacLeod, Laird of the MacLeods of the Isle of Lewis
Do you have a nickname?
Magnus the Broken, but that’s only because there are two other Magnus MacLeod’s, and the clan will choose the oddest things to attach to one’s name, don’t ye know.
What is one word best describes you?
Can’t be one; has to be two… he says something under his breath I can’t quite hear… and frustrated.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Curious, are they? Weel, I’ve my muslin shirt—stained as it is with herbs and liquids—my worn breeches, with the yellow and green MacLeod plaid wrapped tight around my shoulders.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She did as well as she could, the dear lassie, see in’ as how I’m such a complex and clever character. But she has me talkin’ to myself as though I’m daft.
What makes you laugh out loud?
When I talk to myself, and when my brothers puff up their chests and become self-righteous eegits.
What is your favourite dessert?
Weel now, let me think on that. Tis without a doubt the poached pear pie Caitlin MacLeod bakes for me every time I do my healing’ for her family.
What is your favourite drink?
Ale, lass. What else would it be?
What is your greatest fear?
He grows pale and quiet Never findin’ someone who thinks and feels like I do. Endin’ up as alone as I feel right now.
What is your favourite colour?
Green like the forest in spring.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
An old and comfortable pair of breeches.
What is the perfect romantic date?
Walkin’ out with a an extraordinary lass to a special, hidden place, where I’ve had a feast prepared for her.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
An impertinent question, to be sure. I just never let anyone touch me along my upper ribs or under my arms. But I’m no’ ticklish at all. Definitely not.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Tis of snow in springtime. It reminds me of a dream of a woman I can no’ escape.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her comeliness, I can no’ deny that, but there’s something else as well. Something deeper and harder to find—how she thinks and how she…feels.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Aye, I’m thinkin’ I do.
What is one word best describes her?
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Aye, tis the second novella in the series where the Too Deep for Tears Trilogy began. A Tear for Memory was the first. The next novella is the story of our daughter, Mairi Rose, who is such an important part of the trilogy.
Thank you Magnus for taking the time for this chat and I am looking forward to reading your story.
Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoyed this chat too.
