I love revisiting my stories. Each time I go back and read one of my books, I fall in love with the characters all over again. It’s been a while since I’ve done a character interview, so today, I want to introduce you to Chase and Cait from When I Found You, book two, in my Finding Home series. These two are some of my favorite characters with their fun personalities.
Author: Welcome, Chase and Cait. Introduce yourselves!
Chase: I’m Chase Richards. I’m a marketing executive, and we live in Atlanta, Georgia.
Cait: And I’m Cait Houston Richards…
Chase interrupts: Georgia Cait. (He winks at her)
Author: Why did you correct her name?
Chase: Her real name is Georgia Cait.
Cait: It’s our thing. You’ll learn all about it in the book.
Author: Cait, you’re from somewhere other than Atlanta, right?
Cait: Yes. I’m from a tiny little farming town in North Florida.
Author: So how did you end up in Atlanta?
Cait: I’m also in marketing and came here for a temporary assignment. I thought I wanted to live in the big city, but I was ready to go back home once I got here.
Chase: Until she met me.
Cait: He’s not wrong.
Author: You had a meet cute the first time you met. I love this story, so tell us what happened.
Chase: I was on my way to a cooking class when I stopped at a light and saw this beautiful young woman stranded on the side of the road. I felt this strong pull to stop and help her.
Author: So the stranded woman was Cait.
Chase and Cait: Yes.
Cait: At first, I was scared out of my mind that a man was walking up to my car.
Chase: It was written all over her face.
Cait: But he made me feel comfortable right away. I knew he was truly there to help me change the flat tire on my car.
Author: So that’s not the only meet cute you guys had. Tell us about the next time.
Chase: Turns out we were both headed to the same cooking class the day of the flat tire. We had no idea.
Cait: Until the next week when you walked in late.
Chase: I almost didn’t come.
Author: What did you think when you saw each other in class?
Chase: I didn’t see her until the end of class because I was at the front and she was sitting at the back.
Cait: And I had to sit there the whole time trying to decide if I wanted to talk to him or not.
Chase: I’m glad she did, but I would have spotted her regardless. (He winks again, and Cait blushes)
Author: So after that night, you decided to meet up again.
Cait: We hit it off right away. I had never felt so at ease with a complete stranger. As much as I didn’t like Atlanta, Chase made it much more bearable.
Chase: The connection we shared from the start was undeniable. Plus, she appreciated my humor.
Cait: Well, appreciate is a stretch, but it was one of the things that attracted me to you. You were just fun to be around.
Author: So Chase, you moved to Atlanta a while back. I know you were part of the story A Half Made Whole, the first book in the Finding Home series. What’s your connection there?
Chase: Leighton, from A Half Made Whole, is one of my best friends from college. She went through a lot after graduation, so I moved here to be closer to her and her daughter. You’ll have to read her story to find out all the details.
Author: A Half Made Whole is my favorite story.
Cait: Leighton has become one of my closest friends as well. Her family and other characters from the first book and the prequel are part of our story as well.
Author: Cait, you’re sister appears in this story too.
Cait: Yes, Piper is my little sister. She kept me sane in Atlanta until I met Chase. You’ll meet her in another story in this series–One She Never Expected.
Author: I don’t want to give too much away about this book, so readers, you’ll have to pick it up to see how their story unfolds. Thank you, Chase and Cait, for sharing a little about yourselves with the lovely readers of Inspy Romance.
