Title: The Life of an American Hockey Player
By: Kerri Nelson
Kerri: Today, I’m interviewing pro hockey player Danny Cipriani who is the star of my novel entitled Cross Check My Heart (now available from Eternal Press). Here’s a quick blurb of the story:
She’s on the run from something ominous in her past and escapes to a new town and a new job as the physical therapist for the U.S. Hockey Team who is preparing for the Olympics.
He is a veteran hockey player with a secret of his own that threatens his chances at making the final cut for the team.
When she discovers his secret, will she attempt to stand in the way of his childhood dreams? Or will he unwittingly become the new target when her past ultimately catches up with her?
As their attraction for one another grows, danger looms nearby. Jana and Danny must decide what they will risk for the ultimate game of love…
Kerri: Danny, welcome and thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us today.
Danny: Oh, well…anything for you.
Kerri: Ah, you flatter me. Now, knock that off or everyone will think that what they say about hockey players is indeed true.
Danny: Oh yeah, and what do they say about hockey players?
Kerri: That they are players, of course. And I don’t mean just players of hockey but players in the field of women as well.
Danny: That’s definitely the case with some guys. I just don’t happen to be one of them.
Kerri: That’s good to hear. Now, I guess we should get started with your interview.
Danny: If we must. I would really much rather hear about you instead.
Kerri: Me? Why is that? Your life is far more interesting. What with the professional hockey, your quest to make the Olympic Team and all the drama that you recently went through with Jana.
Danny: I can’t really talk about that.
Kerri: About what? Hockey?
Danny: No, I can’t really talk about Jana right now.
Kerri: Hmm…well I was hoping you could tell the readers more about how you met and that sort of thing.
Danny: I’d really rather not. I’d really rather talk about the author who brought us to life. I mean we wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for you.
Kerri (blushing): Really, it was just something that I needed to do. Your story simply needed to be told.
Danny: I have to say that I’m glad that you did. I mean, there were parts of the book that I would have rather avoided. Of course, I can’t go into that now but let’s just say that all’s well that ends well. Ya know?
Kerri: Yes, well…I guess it is tricky to talk about a book where there’s murder and kidnapping and all sorts of other action involved without giving away too much about the story for those who haven’t read it.
Danny: Exactly. I, personally, love surprises and I want all your readers to enjoy the story unblemished and unspoiled.
Kerri: Fair enough. So, how about if you just tell everyone if Perrot managed to get his teeth repaired?
Danny (laughing): Sadly, no. Even though the epilogue doesn’t cover that tidbit, I can safely tell you that he’s still the same toothless aggravation that he was in the book.
Danny’s cell phone rings.
Danny: Excuse me, do you mind if I take this…it may be important?
Kerri: Sure. Go, ahead.
Danny has a brief conversation and then snaps the phone shut.
Danny: I hate to cut our conversation short but I’m going to have to run. Steele is going to need my help.
Kerri: Oooh, would that be the same Steele who appears in my bestselling debut novel entitled Miss Taken (now available from Whispers Publishing)?
Danny (grinning ear to ear): You know the answer to that but I appreciate you taking the opportunity to plug one of your other books while we are here discussing mine.
Kerri: Always looking for the next sale, Danny. Just like you’re always looking for the next goal.
Danny (standing and bowing slightly): Touché.
