Denise Robbins - Phish NET Stalkings - Author Interview

Author Interview

1. Who is your favorite character?
My favorite character in Phish NET Stalkings is my heroine, Jane East.

2. Why is he/she your favorite?
Jane is my favorite because she is the complete opposite of me. She’s into organic cosmetics. Me, I don’t do cosmetics. She’s afraid of men with badges. The only fear of men I have is those with full beards. Don’t ask! I’ve never sat on Santa’s lap. Jane is rather proper in her dress and even her manners. Me, not so much.

3. How did you come to create him/her?
I didn’t create Jane. She created herself. I sat down one day in Panera and Jane just popped into my head. Complete with her name and her job, and even the name of her Cosmetic company, ‘Not So Plain Jane’s’.

4. When did he/she first enter your mind?
Jane showed up the Sunday morning I sat in Panera and started asking who my characters were. For some reason, Jane was very chatty and informative.

5. Where was he/she given life in the creative process?
Jane showed up with life. It had beaten her down and then she met her mentor and business partner, and he helped her rebuild it. When the hero, Cooper Chance shows up, Jane fears her life is about to tumble away again.

6. What do like the most about him/her and what do you dislike the most about him/her?
What I like most about Jane is her ability to pick up the pieces and move on. She’s almost too good at walking away and starting over. What I like least is that she can’t be completely honest with anyone. That’s a hard way to live, not trusting anyone.

All she wanted was to find love. Was that too much to ask? How difficult could it be to find one man, the perfect man for her?

After dating the losers of the century, Jane decides there has to be a better way. She turns to an online dating service. After all, they guarantee a ‘happily ever after’ or your money back.

Jane East, CEO of Not-So- Plain- Jane’s organic cosmetics wants to fall in love with a man who makes her toes curl when he kisses her. Unfortunately, the one man who makes her toes curl also wears ladies’ pink underwear and a badge. The pink underwear she could probably deal with, but the badge is a different story.

Ever since seeing her mother and granny Pearl murdered by men with badges, Jane has a fear of cops and anyone who carries a badge. Especially, because the killers are still on the loose and searching for her.

Former FBI Cybercrime special agent turned small-town Chief of Police, Cooper Chance, gets caught with his pants down and his family jewels tucked in pink ladies’ underwear with lacy frills when he meets the woman of his dreams. That’s not his only issue. The woman has a fear of cops. If he can get past her guard, maybe he can save her life.

Book Excerpt

Cooper went into his office, shut the door, and closed the blinds. “No way can I pull this off,” he protested holding up the leather skirt and heels. He stripped down to his skivvies and slid into the black leather skirt. “No way!” His damn boxers hung too low, below the skirt hem.

“Shit,” he growled and raked fingers through his hair. Just listen to him, he already sounded like a girl talking about hems.

“That’s why we included the ladies’ panties,” someone shouted back. Muffled chuckling rumbled behind his locked office door.

He riffled through the pile and found a pair of bright pink panties with ruffles and the tags still on them. “You’ve got to be kidding!”

The raucous laughter and low snickering that met his complaint burned his ass. What made him think that becoming the Chief of Police of a small town would be simple, easy? He must have been nuts. At least if he had been in a big city, like New York, Boston, or Minneapolis, he might not have felt so ridiculous. He would have fit in with any number of transgenders who walked the street. But here, in Manchester, New Hampshire he would stick out like a wolf in a pack of cats.

“Do women really wear this kind of underwear?”

“Panties,” one of the men shouted from the outer office.

“Panties,” he grumbled out the corner of his mouth. He held the silky material and eyed it with caution half expecting his men to supply him with a thong. Air wheezed out of his lungs when he saw that there was material on all sides and not some tiny strip that would ride up his ass. Just the thought of it made his shoulders shiver.

Before he lost his nerve, Cooper stripped off his cotton boxers and stuffed his beefy legs into the pink panties. When the underwear reached halfway up his thighs, he heard a popping noise. He glanced down and saw the elastic in the leg holes had ripped apart. “Not one size fits all, are they?”
