I know two women guests should not cause quite a stir, but my fellows don't get to see that many female faces beyond mine and their girlfriends and wives.
It may be a frivolous desire to keep wanting my mates to behave, but it continues to be an eternal hope.
I have to role with the punches and pray they will not embarrass me too deeply.
After all, it would be illegal to kill them and they are just not worth going to jail for!
A knock comes on the door, and I warn the b'ys to behave.
I welcome Rosary and invite her sit down.
Thank you for coming Rosary, though I have known you for years, these yahoos are unfamiliar with you, share a little about yourself.
I wanted to ask how she would know when someone was going to die, just to satisfy my nagging curiosity to find out if she was some kind of secret supernatural, but I kept my mouth shut. I have to respect my guest.
A quick synopsis is that Aubrey McCory’s husband, Matt, died in a tragic accident when she was twenty-eight and pregnant. For the six years he’s been dead, Aubrey still can’t let go of the guilt she feels over him dying, which at times, had her fantasizing about Matt romantically returning to her one last time. Like in the movie "Ghost," when Sam came back and said it final goodbye to Molly. Then days before the seventh anniversary of his death, a glitch in the universe gives Aubrey the psychic ability to hear what people are thinking. And by all accounts, she seems to also have made a psychic connection with the dearly departed – namely her deceased husband.
I'm getting lost in this enjoyable conversation and had forgot about the gang who have remained quiet, but out of nowhere I hear Jack yell."Hey dude, tell us who your favourite characters are?"
Jack just shrugs his shoulders and says "It's my favourite question." Then returns to his beer.
Sorry about that, but Jack's question brought another question to light, If Once Upon Another Time were to be optioned for a movie, who do you see playing your main character(s)?
I see Terrance come towards us, with his bottle of beer in his hand. He does not see the lobster pot that I forgot to put away, trips over it and practically lands in Rosary's lap, to my horror. The beer splashes in Rosary’s face. She shakes it off and smacks her lips.
Terrance does not miss a beat and asks his question.
Thanks for the awkward segue, Terrance, now go over with the rest of the b'ys and let me and Rosary have our yarn. Terrance asked you why you like to write, now I want to ask you, is there anything about writing you don't like?
When you write, what is it that you hope your readers take away from your story?
Personally, I’ve always believed in life after death—not as we know it, but as something miraculous.
Do you have any other stories you are currently writing or are planning to write?
Thanks a million for answering all my questions…and the others, Rosary it has been a real pleasure. As I said before, I have seen Once Upon Another Time online on your website, www.rosarymcquestion.com is there anywhere else your book is available and what formats?
Normally it is warm on my wharf in August, but today the dark clouds are looming overhead and the wind that is whipping off the water is making my shed cold. I'm looking at Rosary and though she is too polite to say anything, she looks frozen.
The pleasure is all mine, Rosary! Come back anytime.
As I watch Rosary drive away, I pick up the lobster pot and retreat into my home for some peace and quiet and to order Once Upon Another Time.
