Category Archives: Character Interview
As part of the release events for the first release from new publisher, Inkspell Publishing, I have landed an interview with the male lead from Shilpa Mudiganti’s contemporary romance novella, ALWAYS YOU. To my elation and excitement, Alexander Knight has brought Lyla along with him.
Welcome to both of you, and thanks for stopping by today. Please make yourselves at home.
*Alexander sits beside Lyla and takes her hand in his*
On to the questions…
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Pilot. I am one too, if you didn’t know. Shilpa conveniently missed it.
What is your favorite meal?
Hmm… Lyla? Ow! *smirks at Lyla who is rubbing her hurting palm*
What group did you hang out with in high school?
I did not. They hung out with me. *smirks*
Who should play you in a film?
Me? Why? Ow! Stop hitting me Lyla. Ok. Henry Cavill comes close.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
That I don’t like to wear suits? I like jeans. Very comfortable.
You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you’ll buy?
Why would I buy a lottery ticket? Remember, i am stinking rich?
What one word best describes you?
Kind. Stop digging my arm, Lyla. What? I am not kind? *scrunches his brow* I take it back. I am supposed to be very kind. *pleased smile*
If you had one day left on Earth, what would you spend that time doing?
Really? Even after you read the book? Of course I would be spending it with Lyla. I prefer it on bed but it really is her choice.
If I took a peek into your closet, what would I find? Under your bed?
Lot of skeletons. I mean it. *bores his eyes in to Rebecca*
Hehe — As you can see, Alexander Knight is quite a character. You can learn more about him, and the quieter, sweeter, Lyla in Shilpa Mudiganti’s contemporary romance, ALWAYS YOU, available now at the retailers listed below:
She’s been stuck in a rut since her heart was broken five years ago. Trying to decide about life with her fiance, Nick, she resolves to finish one last project before moving to Spain and starting a new life. That is until she is face to face with the one man who broke her heart all those years ago, Alexander Knight.
Five years ago, when Alex and Lyla meet at his friend, Andrew’s grave, they fall deeply in love. But, Alex is hiding a secret that will destroy his relationship with Lyla and does. What Lyla doesn’t realize is that Alex has changed since their break-up, because of her love, only she still has hate in her heart towards him.
But now, fate has brought them together in such a way that they have no option but to remain dangerously close – dangerous enough for Lyla to fall in love with him again. How can she? Not after what she knows about Alex and what he did to Andrew.
It’s true that love can change people for the better. But is it enough? What will happen when two broken people with a past come together?
Can they forgive and heal?
Shilpa Mudiganti grew up creating stories in her head. She thought her career would be as an author until she completed her technical degree. The security of an IT job lured her into leaving her stories to brew in her head. Yet, she fell in step with what fate had planned for her and penned her first romance novella, Always You. There has been no looking back since then. Always You is now being published by Inkspell Publishing in March, 2012.
Juggling her day job as an IT geek, she tries to put all her corporate learning into Inkspell. When she has time to breathe, she spends time blogging, connecting with her readers and spending time with her loving husband. She lives at Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
