Character Interview

What is your name Mitchell Davis

How much pride do you take in your appearance? Some would say too much. They may even say I have an ego which is wa…ok it's true. I have a bit of an ego. It's not that I really think that highly of myself and that everyone wants me, it's something I do as a way to entertain. It makes my friends laugh and tends to lighten the mood when things get dramatic. In our lives, drama happens often.

Who has been your greatest influence (parent, friend, idol)? Why? Quinn. He's become like a brother to me. We bonded after what happened between us. He gave me a new view on life, made me realize the things that are the most important to me. I grew up as an only child and never had an older brother to teach me things or keep me from making huge mistakes. Quinn has been a mentor for me in more ways than one.

What, if anything, do you do to keep fit and healthy? Once my alarm goes off in the morning I jump out of bed and do fifty push-ups. I'd like to be able to say I eat healthy, but the truth is I eat like a pig. I am a growing teenage boy after all.  In one sitting I could finish two cheeseburgers, a large fry and two pieces of pie and still be hungry…I've done it before. At night I like to take a quick run to work off the food I ate throughout the day.

How would you spend an unexpected day off? Laser Tag with my friend Parker. We went once and it was the best day. There is nothing like strapping on those vests and taking out frustration by shooting things. We came up with each other's nicknames that way too. She calls me Fangs and I call her Lupita.

What is your relationship status at the start of the story? Happily involved with the girl I've been in love with since I saw her on the first day of kindergarten. Her name is Jackie Martin. We've been together for two years when the story begins.

How do you feel about being the center of attention? Like I mentioned before, I sort of have an ego. Being the center of attention is awesome for me…well, it used to be at least. Now, based on my recent life change, I have a new urge to blend in so that my secret isn't discovered.

What makes you blush? The only person who has ever made me blush is Jackie Martin. We make a game out of it actually. We like to see who can make the other blush quicker by whispering things during class. Someone she ends up winning by making me blush more, it's one of the many reasons I love that girl.

Have you undergone any dramatic physical transformations in your life? Yeah. You could say that. My life took a turn I never would have expected in a million years. If I could travel into the future and see where I'd be today, I still wouldn't have believed it enough to have changed it.

What would you like your life to look like in twenty years? Nice house with Jackie and a few kids of our own. Quinn and Parker would be our closest couple friends and our kids would all hang out together. I want the normal life. I never thought I wanted that before. My dreams used to be to play pro-basketball with my hot wife Jackie next to me as we traveled the world with our riches. Now I want to have a calm family life.

What is the driving force / motivation in your life? My friends. They've become my family lately. My parents have been at odds with each other so family life has been strained. Now that I have Quinn, Parker, and Jackie keeping me busy, things have been much better. They keep me moving forward.

What was your first impression of the hero(ine)? My first impression of Parker was that she was shy and a loner. She'd been Jackie's best friend for years but once Jackie and I started dating they barely saw each other. I thought Parker resented me for causing the distance between them.

How accurate was this first impression? Parker is shy, but she aches for companionship. With her secret, that she's a werewolf, it's hard to make friends or be around people in general. Parker never resented me for taking Jackie away, in fact I think she was grateful that I took the attention away from her a little so it made it less difficult to keep that secret. In truth she's a strong, caring, loyal friend and we're lucky she's let us into her life now.

What revelation surprised you most about him/her? The whole werewolf thing threw me for a loop with Parker. I never even knew werewolves existed and then I find out that someone I've known most of my life has been turned into one. It's a lot to deal with.

How would you define the word ‘love’? I'm a bit of a romantic, as a jock I get grief for having a girlfriend for so long. The guys think I should be out 'playing the field,' but I'm not interested in that. Love is about caring for someone more than you care for yourself. It's about being selfless, putting your life on the line if needed.  Love sneaks up on you when you least expect it and many times when you aren't looking for it. Love is what life is about, whether it's through friendship or romantic love, it's what makes life worth living.

Title: Retribution
Author: W.M. Clarke
Genre: Sci-fi Romance
Series: Wade Ferris Chronicles Shadow Warrior, Book 2
Release Date: May 9, 2016
Publisher: ZinaImage Media
Add to Goodreads TBR
WARNING: ADULTS ONLY. This book contains Graphic Violence and Sexual Situations

It’s a love story set in the violence and turmoil of an invasion by Alien beings. Corrupt government officials and violent gangs, all of them wanting their share of the spoils. Amidst the sexual tension, and personal conflict, they know that they to put their feelings aside and do what needs to be done before it is too late. Failure to accomplish their goals will only result in death, not only for themselves but for every living thing on the planet.

Carline and Ferris had dealt the Invaders a major setback by blowing up one of the antennas and destroying their equipment. Forced now to move away from the beach area of Waikanae, they moved inland towards the center of town with the goal of locating a transmitter they could use to contact the military and pass on what information they had gathered about the Invaders.
Little did they know, that the collaboration of the gangs was just the tip of the iceberg, and ran a lot deeper than they could ever imagine.

After helping two women escape from their attackers, they take Carline and Ferris to a building they consider safe, but things are not as they seem. The building holds its own secrets, as do the two women they just rescued.

Ginny and Carmella join forces with Ferris and Carline after they discover what each other is trying to do. Close relationships between the four of them quickly develop with each of them knowing they might not survive for much longer. The four of them set out to rid Ginny’s mysterious Green Mountain of the gang members and the Invaders. Their mission is to find out what is there the invaders want and why.

Other eyes are watching them as well, those of the supernatural world that have charged them with the return of a sacred object supposedly hidden within Green Mountain.


The closer they got to town, they could hear the distinctive sound of a number of AK47's being fired.
Ferris activated his com's as soon as they were at the edge of town.  "Ginny! Can you hear me?" There was nothing but silence and the occasional burst of static as though someone was trying to get through. Ferris looked back at Carline. "Try and get through to Cam, mate.  If they're still blocking our Com's, both of us trying may just screw up their scanners long enough for one of us to get hold of one of the girls." He knew it was a long shot, but he hoped that it might work.

Carline nodded and began calling Cam while Ferris tried again to get hold of Ginny.   "Ginny, can you hear me?"

"Ferris... Help me. I can't hold them off much longer. It's a trap! I can't see Cam, I think she's down.... "  The transmission ended with a load of static.

Ferris grabbed Carline and shoved him to get his attention. " They're in trouble! Head for the train tracks."

Without waiting to see if Carline was following, Ferris was heading for he railway tracks that ran through behind the rear of the shops. Once on the tracks, he raced along the open area between the rails, outdistancing Carline by a far margin.

By the time he reached the corner at the far end, behind the stronghold,  the shooting had stopped. He caught a glimpse of a group of goblins throwing something into the side door of the van, halfway between where he was and the intersection. His first thought was that it was one of their own wounded being tossed into the back. But when one of the goblins tumbled from the doorway, he caught a glimpse of blonde hair and thrashing boots in the rear.

"Ginny!" He shouted at the top of his voice.

W.M. Clarke
Born in New Zealand sometime around the middle of last century, and according to my mother, I was found under a cabbage plant when asked where I came from. During these early years I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents. My Grandfather was a fisherman and owned a small fleet of ocean going fishing boats. Before I was 5 years old I knew how to strip down the engines and how to mend and make fishing nets. All these good things taught to me, I was sure would hold me in good stead at some future time.

So armed with new found knowledge of engines, fishing nets, and that I just grew; I was packed off to Elementary School to begin years of tedious book learning. I remember the first few days quite vividly, wondering home at the first break in class and my mother asking me why I was home. My reply to that was "The teacher said I didn't need to be there anymore and I knew everything I needed to know." This was a concept that suited me right down to the ground. But for some unknown reason Mom didn't see it that way. So I had my sorry butt dragged back to that place, where I was to remain for a whole year.

At the years end, I was told I was not going to be going back to the old school, which for your information suited me just fine. The trouble was I didn't hear the rest of the what was being said. I spent that Christmas break enjoying the feeling that school was done for me and I was finally free to do as I pleased until I was old enough to go out to work.

Can you imagine the shock I felt when the Christmas break was over and I find my scrawny ass being dragged out of bed at the ungodly hour of 7:00 a.m. on that Monday morning. (You can insert whatever cuss words you know in here. It's all good.) A new school, new teachers...oh, crap!

I found myself becoming a foundation pupil of a brand new school. Windley School, a name to be feared in future years. It was during this first year at the new school, that we moved to a new house closer to the school.

By the time I was about 8 this learning thing had become a bad habit. Forced into attending this "School" 5 days a week was getting to be a bit of a drag. Although I did find I had the knack for making people laugh and generally getting teachers a tiny bit pissed at me. (Good stuff!) I discovered writing and I found that I could get a few laughs out of it. The teacher would say I want a 500 word essay from everyone by this afternoon. (Which translated into, I don't feel like teaching right now I need to rest.) Hell! With only 500 word, I had barely gotten started on the first part. I think the teacher actually feared asking for a word count. While my classmates moaned and groaned about it being so long, I was happily filling my exercise book full of words and dream worlds.

I always knew when the teacher got to my book. There was an audible sigh from her when she opened it.
"Clarke come here! " She would say. "Do you know what 500 words mean?"
"Yes Ma'am." I'd answer.
"What does it mean? Tell me!"
"Not enough Ma'am." Which usually earned me a slap on the hand from her, much to the enjoyment from the rest of the class.

High School was an eye opener for me. I discovered Girls, lots of girls to occupy my time with. I also during this time I met a local poet, who ended up being my English teacher. Sam Hunt was one of the few people that actually tried to help me develop a style that suited my personality. But unfortunately his time there was limited, and he was coming into his own peak. His poetry and needs took first place. I couldn't blame him for that. If I was at the peak of my career I would have done the same thing as well.

Once out of High School I met a young man that was to become a close and dear friend for many years after. We were destined to share a friendship that would lead both of us through a great deal of harrowing times and adventures. We rode motorbikes together, got into no ends of trouble. Tried our hands at riding in the rodeo for a couple of seasons thinking we might make a few dollars.

Around 1975, we found ourselves in what was then Rhodesia as part of the Rhodesian Security Forces fighting in the so called Bush Wars. My parents and that, all thought I was safely tucked away in Auckland working my ass off there. Both of us returned to New Zealand, changed in a way that neither of us had expected. We were hard and rugged, far more used to living in the bush than in civilization.

I met the woman who was later to become my wife in 1980. I help raise her two young daughters, and my own daughter was born four years later. My friend Denny was still in my life and my wife was friends with his sister. During this time I worked as a Security specialist for Businessmen and a couple of Foreign Diplomats.

1998, my marriage had ended and it was time for me to move on. I end up here in the US of A and this is the place I now call home. For 14 of the last 18 years I have served and protected this country in one way or another as a Contractor or a Security Specialist. For me now, my wars are done. I have returned to what I feel comfortable with. I have a new career wife and family to consider.

I write full time now, and do a little design work on the side to keep the wolves from the door. I have Ghost written two novels for others in the last 18 months. Written, edited and published 1 art book for a friend (currently in print as a 2nd Edition), and I will release it as a Kindle eBook shortly for those who like to follow artists and their works. My own Science Fiction Novel Shadow Warrior Book One is due out in a month. Book two in the series is just about finished and hopefully be released on Kindle by October.

No, I never got to use the skills taught to me by my Grandfather, but neither do I regret it or the time i spent with both him and my Grandmother. As for my past life, if asked I would do it all again! In a heartbeat!

Juliette Taylor never saw Tanner Brady coming and as much as she swears he's all kinds of wrong for her and that she wants nothing to do with him, he's out to show her otherwise. Never in a million years did she think a laid-back tattoo artist could be the man for her, but he's determined to show her that she's his kind of crazy.
I instinctively reach out to grab something to hold on to in an effort to halt my fall. Silly really, because I'm stepping out of the taxi right in front of the hotel lobby doors and there is nothing to grab hold of.
Well, generally there's not.
Today, however, there is.
"I've got you," a man says as his hands slide under my arms and he stops my collapse.
This all happens in a blur, but at the sound of his deep voice, my head snaps up so I can look at him.
Oh. My.
Mesmerising blue eyes capture mine for a moment before I drop my gaze to appreciate his sexy, bearded smile. In my experience, those kinds of lips promise many things that a girl like me doesn't have the time for. I'm all for fun sexy times, but it's the heartbreak a man like him promises that I don't have the time for.
Lips don't lie.
Neither do tattoos, and as my attention diverts from his lips to his neck and down to his arms, I see tattoo after tattoo.
Tattoos and I do not go together.
I gather myself and look back up into his eyes. Steadying myself, I move out of his hold and say, "Thank you."
He's stopped smiling, but his lips twitch and his eyes twinkle. "You're welcome."
I narrow my gaze on him. Why is he looking at me like that? Like I amuse him. "Are you laughing at me?"
He continues to watch me with that same lip-twitching gaze. "Do I look like I'm laughing?"
Gripping my bags tighter, I square my shoulders. "No, but there's something going on in your mind and I'm sure it's some kind of laughter at my expense."
He runs his fingers through his brown hair. He's got one of those haircuts where it's really short on the sides and the rest is styled into that sexy, tousled look—the kind of look that makes my belly flutter. His voice distracts me from thinking about his hair when he replies, "Let's just say I'm amused when a woman, who is clearly attracted to me, flinches at my tattoos. They're just ink on skin; they don't tell you about the kind of man I am underneath all that art."
"I'm not attracted to you," I snap.
I'm not.
His brows rise. "No? Could've fooled me."
