Character Interviews

I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the characters of Loose ID’s newest release, Touch Me, Please Me. Sahara Baker is a Desirable Witch, a line of promiscuous and powerful women who fight for justice and mate for pure enjoyment. Desirables don’t have morals, they don’t have relationships and they don’t fall in love…or so they think.

Cedric Compton is a writer with quick wit and intelligent eyes. He sees beyond the surface to the real person that most of us hide. Cedric is a dreamer. He’s serious and he’s loyal. He’s just the kind of man an unsuspecting woman would fall for.

Sahara Baker

Q: Where were you born?

A: Mystic, Connecticut

Q: What’s your favorite color?

A: Lime green and lilac

Q: What’s your favorite food?

A: Shrimp

Q: What’s your favorite position?

A: Any one that I am in control of

Cedric Compton

Q: You’re a writer, describe your ideal heroine?

A: One with inner beauty, strength and integrity.

Q: So outer beauty, sex appeal, none of that matters to you?

A: C’mon, I’m a man, those things are a given. But there has to be more.

Q: How do you separate what’s real and what’s make believe?

A: Feelings are always real. No matter where they stem from, they are substantive.

Q: Have you always believed in magic?

A: I’ve always believed in my imagination. Magic has been there from the start that’s why I write about it.

Q: Did you ever envision yourself falling for a witch?

A: [He laughs.] A witch would be the last person I figured myself falling for. But just as in fiction, anything in life is possible.

Q: What are your thoughts on the Phantoms?

A: They have a job to do, a purpose as do we all. Unfortunately, the Deisrables are commissioned to stop them.

Q: Speaking of one Desirable in particular…

A: Sahara Baker? [he interrupts]

Q: Yes, Sahara. Do you two have any future plans?

A: [His smile is broad.] We’re taking it one day at a time.

Q: And what is your relationship with Colina Devin?

A: [He shifts in his chair uncomfortably.] Colina is a close—a very close—friend. [His eyes twinkle mischievously and this reporter assumes the rumors of a threesome are true.]
