Wednesday Spotlight with Chelsea Turner

When the whispers in the night, the whispers of her lover, are the whispers of a killer, will Margot escape before she becomes the next victim?

Deep in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon, a serial killer stalks. He leaves his signature—a skull mask on the corpse. But when the homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment of a case never solved ten years ago--all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.



Hello and welcome to Wednesday Spotlight! So you met the villain who played the role of Michael DeVeccio, the “don’t mess with me” cop that portrayed Diego Santiago. Today, it’s time to meet the woman desired by both. Let’s have a warm welcome for the woman brave enough to take on the role of Margot Montgomery. Chelsea Turner, come on out!


Thunderous applause explodes as Oliver escorts Chelsea into the parlor. With a wink and a roguish grin, he plucks a rose from the vase and hands it to her.

Chelsea: (Blush) Thank you! It’s great to be here today.


Sharon: Welcome, Chelsea! Have a seat and make yourself comfortable. Before we start chatting about how it felt to play the part of Margot in the video of Mask of the Betrayer, can Oliver get you a drink?


Chelsea: Water is great. I’m a simpleton.


Sharon: Oliver, make that two, please. And perhaps that nice veggie tray and dip you made.


Oliver struts out with the refreshments, winking madly at Chelsea and pumping his biceps.

Sharon: First of all, congratulations on your outstanding performance of the heroine in my book. In all honesty, I admit to losing a few winks over who Triad Productions would choose to play Margot Montgomery in the book video of Mask of the Betrayer. There’s a lot more to the heroine than meets the eye. Margot is smart, business savvy, and has a strong sense of family and morals. Despite her natural beauty that radiates from within, she is somewhat na├»ve to the evils of the world. When she meets billionaire business tycoon Michael DeVeccio, she is blinded by his devastating charm and good looks. Throwing caution to the wind, she falls head over heels and right into a ghoulish trap. Tell us how it felt to play the role of Margot.

Chelsea: I felt really close to Margot. I felt like we had some real similarities in personality traits, flaws, and (in my imagination) looks. Hopefully, I matched the images in the minds of your readers.

Sharon: Did you feel any empathy toward Margot? Could you see yourself in real life being drawn into such a clever trap by a manipulative madman?

Chelsea: I hope I never have the opportunity to be drawn into a trap like that. To give you an accurate answer to that question, I think a lot of women can sympathize with Margot. Who wouldn’t love to have an attractive, wealthy, and sophisticated man sweep you off your feet? She seemed so innocent it’s hard for me to accuse her of stupidity for not being suspicious.

Sharon: Exactly. And that was precisely the feelings I hoped to evoke from readers. And I agree. What woman in her right mind wouldn’t be caught up in the whirlwind of all that charm? Now, tell us about the wedding scene. The huge and gaudy ring used in my book was the same ring found on the corpse of Lacy Diamond and his ex-wife. How did this make you feel?

Chelsea: Slightly disgusted and undervalued. If I was so special or unique to Michael why couldn’t he get me a different ring? Why did he have to give me the ring that had been on a corpse…?


Sharon: I know! And later in the book, Diego Santiago warns her of this very thing. Let’s chat about the pool scene. It’s dramatic and pivotal to the story. You looked truly terrified when Michael threatened you. Tell us about that scene.


Chelsea: The day we filmed this scene I just showed up, changed into the swimsuit and we started straight into filming. At this point I hadn’t had a real conversation with the actor who played Michael. Here I was in a swimsuit with a guy I had no relationship with. The start of the scene is when I am realizing that Michael is not the man I thought I had married. I knew that I had to make a decision or a plan to escape but before I could come to a conclusion Michael was there. Fumbling with my words, I throw out that I want a divorce. I realized my error right away and the rest of the scene I try to stay strong but, of course, my fear takes the upper hand. I know that he is going to kill me whether I present him with a son or not. How will I survive the next few weeks? I’m not sure, but for a start I just want to stay standing.


Sharon: You were great, playing it up to perfection. Let’s watch the video so we can see Chelsea Turner in action. Oliver, roll the video, please.



Thunderous applause explodes!


Sharon: Can you imagine in real life, a husband making such a demand on his wife? Give me a son or die! What would you do in real life if presented with such a barbaric demand?

Chelsea: I want to say I would RUN!!! But honestly, I think it would be pretty difficult to run from an incredibly wealthy individual such as Michael. He’d hunt me down in five minutes and I wouldn’t have any money to run away with. I would say my only option would be to have him sent to jail before he kills me.


Sharon: And finally, what was your reaction to the madman? What emotions went through you in order to get into character to act with him?


Chelsea: Since we hadn’t had a real conversation at this point, it was easy to be frightened, uncomfortable, and yet dangerously courageous at moments. Knowing death was imminent also played a huge role in how I reacted towards Michael’s threats. The biggest advantage was not knowing my co-star and not knowing what he was capable of. Just as Margot knew something big was going to happen during this conversation, but not knowing how big.

Sharon: Excellent answers!Thank you for joining me, Chelsea, and thank you so much for playing the role of my character with such articulation. Bravo!

Chelsea: Thank you! It was a pleasure to play such a well developed character. Best of luck to you!

Wednesday Spotlight with Gregory Collett

When the whispers in the night, the whispers of her lover, are the whispers of a killer, will Margot escape before she becomes the next victim?


Deep in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon, a serial killer stalks. He leaves his signature—a skull mask on the corpse. But when the homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment of a case never solved ten years ago--all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.


Hello and welcome to Wednesday Spotlight! My featured guest today is Gregory Collett, the actor who played the role of Detective Diego Santiago in my book video Mask of the Betrayer. Before I bring him out, let’s have a peek at the video produced by Triad Productions.


Thunderous applause explodes as Gregory struts into the parlor


Sharon: Welcome, Gregory, have a seat. Can Oliver get you something from the bar?


Gregory: Tequila, always tequila. Patron is sufficient unless you have a mescal from Oaxaca estado. On the rocks, squeeze of lime. Thanks…


Sharon: We aim to please, and I’ll have my usual, Oliver.

With a nod, Oliver presents a CC& club soda and shot of Mexican tequila with a squeeze of lime on the rocks.

Sharon: First of all, I want to thank you so much for bringing my character to life so well. Detective Diego Santiago is a streety cop with attitude personified, and you certainly fit the bill. Santiago is first introduced when his team discovers the corpse of Lacy Diamond in the bathtub with a death star in her throat and a death mask on her face. Can you give us any inside scoop on that scene?


Gregory: I was haunted by my past the instant I saw Lacy Diamond lying in that bathtub. There was a murder some ten years ago ‘we’ never solved. Dejavu hit me like lightning. There was an immediate juxtaposition with the murder of Carlos DeVeccio some ten years before and Lacy Diamond’s murder. Death star in the throat. Accurate, precise, and well thought out. We had our suspicions, but never found that killer so this was immediately a highly personal affair!

Sharon: In the next scene, you are at the DeVeccio mansion, questioning the suspect. The antagonism between Santiago and DeVeccio is palpable. Santiago hates the smug billionaire, knows he’s guilty as sin, but can’t prove it. DeVeccio taunts the cop with flip remarks, enjoying the game of cat and mouse. What was going through your head during this scene? What were your thoughts of Michael DeVeccio?


Gregory: He’s the typical wealthy stereotype. For us working stiffs, whatever the job ethic, he’s immediately wrong just by his very stoic, elitist nature. My stomach turns inside every time I have to talk to him. My instincts alive with disapproval. But, an education and aristocratic background has trained him well. He’s very hard to properly accuse. Harder to even catch since he leaves no evidence worth a damn. That’s why this type of case is so difficult and it holds itself deep in my psyche.

Sharon: Santiago’s a tough cop, street-wise and full of confidence. And he’s a master at getting into the mind of a killer. He sees things other cops miss. What were your thoughts about Santiago and do you have anything in common with the character?

Gregory: A man dedicated to his art, his focus must rely upon his instincts always. This is the ultimate fighting tool in crime solving cases. Pathological murderers are the clearly the most psychotic. They hide their very nature from the public eye. There is always many faces but the killer has a glitch, personality flaw if you like, which essentially condemns him regardless his fate with the law. He or she is always in prison. A prison of the mind. This is when my instinct allows itself access into the killers ‘true nature’. It’s my job to remove him from the public so no further carnage occurs. The ‘game’ that is created is done so for the killers sake. A cheap, short control because he has no control. He is trapped inside, inside his mind. There is nothing left to live for when one has turned into this. It’s finding the weakness, often visible only second maybe minutes, into the murder’s mind which gains me eventual success. I see each situation similarly until that short access is allowed. That is my art. Michael DeVeccio has a trained mind. He is always a greater challenge regardless the opportunity. He covers his bases brilliantly. Takes me more time but I will prevail since there is no other way!


Sharon: Now let’s talk a bit about the props used in the video. The Ninja star or the death star is a weapon used in Martial arts. Prior to the research for Mask of the Betrayer, I’d never heard of it. Are you a fan of the arts and if so, are you familiar with the Ninja death star?


Gregory: Of course, I grew up watching Bruce Lee films. I still say the film ‘Hero’ was one of the great films made(must be seen on film screen for full effect). The death star was always one of the weapons of the dark arts. One of the tools of the great Ninja warriors.



Sharon: About how long does it take to film each scene? Are there a lot of cuts and interruptions?


Gregory: No, we worked through the script quickly. I think, maybe, too rapidly but I’m not the director. There was a pace required for the project. This is when I’m only a cog in the wheel. I play the part as best I can but the cadence of the scenes is up to the production crew, mainly, the director.

Sharon: And finally, what was your reaction to the face mask used in Mask of the Betrayer, the macabre skull mask?

Gregory: Believable. It’s a useful and powerful technique to use. The audience immediately knows the goals of the protagonist. It’s literal and exact. If there were vague variables, less exact metaphors, then the power of the protagonist would have to be developed more thoroughly. The mask gives ‘us’ quick access into the intent of the story.


Sharon: Thank you so much for joining me today, Gregory.To read Gregory Collett’s impressive resume, visit his website:

http://www.gregorycollett.com/

Sharon: And here are some final words from Gregory Collett:

I work on films throughout the west coast, Mexico and really wish to access into a world market. I love travel and love culture. Currently, I live above SLC in the mountains. Out of the traffic, off the grid, surrounded by nature, but a 15 minute bike ride down the hill (about an hour into town).

Thanks for having me Sharon, it was good chatting about ‘Mask of the Betrayer’.

Wednesday Spotlight with Loren Lambert


When the whispers in the night, the whispers of her lover, are the whispers of a killer, will Margot escape before she becomes the next victim?

Deep in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon, a serial killer stalks. He leaves his signature—a skull mask on the corpse. But when the homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment of a case never solved ten years ago--all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.



Hello and welcome to Wednesday Spotlight! I have a very special treat for you today. As you know, Mask of the Betrayer is a psychological thriller. At its core is its villain, billionaire business tycoon Michael DeVeccio who operates his construction empire with an iron fist. He is charming, coy and very cunning. And he is a demented sociopath who has been getting away with murder for decades. When I asked Triad Productions to make a video of my book, I didn’t think they could come up with an actor to fill the shoes of Michael DeVeccio, the most complex character I have created to date. They did and he’s here with me today. Let’s have a warm welcome for Loren Lambert.


Thunderous applause explodes as Loren enters the parlor. The Hunting Song plays in the background, the song that has been programmed into Michael’s head since he was twelve years old.


Sharon: Have a seat, Loren. Thank you for joining me today. Can Oliver get you something from the bar?

Loren: Yes, a nice peach nectar and Fresca blend--my favorite—have to keep a clear mind, a cool head and a steady hand.


Sharon: I’ll have the same, Oliver.
Allow me to commend you on your outstanding performance of Michael DeVeccio, Loren. You portrayed him so well. How did it feel to play the role of such a twisted sociopath, a man who kills with no remorse?


Loren: Thank you. I love a challenge and I greatly appreciated the opportunity to tackle this. I also love stories, their magic and mystery and power to transform our conscious. It's not that playing a twisted sociopath is fun, it's creating a complex, multi-dimensional character that is not a stereotype, facade or some gauzy representation of reality that is satisfying. Michael's character presented that opportunity and challenge. I hope I captured something that is reflective of the imaginations of the readers of this story.


Oliver serves the drinks.


Sharon: Thank you, Oliver. You know when I wrote the book, I wanted the reader to understand the significance of the Hunting Song. From the age of twelve, Michael’s uncle trained his nephew to kill the betrayer by programming the song into his head. By this method of brainwashing, the lyrics of the song echoed in Michael’s head, pumping him up with the urge to get even. The opening scene in the video portrays this. Tell me what went through your mind when you crept into the mansion, put on the macabre skull mask with those chilling words haunting you?


Loren: Love the thrill of the hunt, so to speak.


Sharon: I was very pleased with the balcony scene, when Michael is muttering to himself about finding the perfect woman to produce his son, an heir to his kingdom. He believes he can have whatever he wants simply by ruling it so. It sounds like the ramblings of a madman. Was it difficult to get into character for this scene:

Loren: No, because the difficulty was met with sufficient preparation to present the scene. A good actor does not memorize lines, he or she memorizes thoughts, emotions and motives that capture the mood of the scene and drive the words from his soul.

Sharon: It’s important for authors to give a character a habit of some type, either quirky or obsessive. I gave Michael the obsessive habit of tapping his cigarette three times before lighting it. Did you find this effective, helping you to get inside Michael’s head?


Loren: Not necessarily. Unusual actions and habits certainly do help capture the manifestation of a unique individual, just as wardrobe does, but they become more integral when combined with a progressive action that moves the plot forward or that tell us something about the character. Michael's habit was a symbol of his uniqueness as an individual. Given more scenes we might have learned how this habit may have said something about him and the habit’s origins and thereby revealed its greater meaning.

Sharon: Michael and the homicide cop toy with one another throughout the entire book. Santiago, a streety cop with attitude, hates the smug billionaire and wants nothing more than to nail him for the recent murders as well as the murder of his uncle ten years earlier. Michael cooly taunts the cop, all but admitting to the crimes, knowing there is no evidence. How did it feel to play this scene in the DeVeccio parlor, leisurely sipping coffee while reading the Wall Street Journal?

Loren: Again, it was great fun taking on the airs of a overconfident villain snubbing the authorities with a wry smile as opposed to playing a stereotype.

Sharon: Now let’s chat about the sweet and unsuspecting Margot Montgomery. When Michael meets Margot in the cocktail lounge in his casino, charisma oozes from every pore. But the whole while he is drawing her in with his devastating charm, he is seeing her as the perfect woman to produce his son. What went through your head during this scene?


Loren: This scene more fully highlights Michael's cunning and bravado. Here, Michael demonstrates that he believes that he indeed found a woman who is, "easy to control," and who he knows was sucked into the marriage, not just because of his charm, but because of her attraction to wealth and her naivety. He also relies upon the fact that what he sees as her unsophisticated nature, will cause her to be too paralyzed with fear to do anything--or so he suspects. This peaks the interest of the audience and begs the questions, what is she going to do? Is she capable of getting out of this and how?


Sharon: Absolutely. Michael is a master manipulator and is always on the hunt. And the pool scene is very dramatic. Michael has Margot right where he wants her—under his thumb. She knows at this point that he is the serial killer. She knows he wants a son. And if she doesn’t do as she’s commanded, she will be the next victim. Oliver, roll the video, please. Let’s watch Loren Lambert in action.




Thunderous applause…


Sharon: Awesome how you captured the character of Michael DeVeccio so well. And it looks like a real mansion was used. Can you tell me about it?


Loren: The McCune mansion was built in 1900 by Alfred W. McCune for 1 million dollars (22 million by today’s standards). In 1920 it was donated to the LDS who used it for a music school. The LDS church sold it and today it has been renovated and is rented by the upper class for weddings, balls and other special events. We were extremely lucky to shoot there. It was simply gorgeous.

Sharon: Finally, before you leave, tell me your favorite scene and why?


Loren: Definitely the pool scene because it was layered with emotion and possibilities and was most pivotal to the story. (And I might add, it's a breeze playing opposite a talented and easy-on-the-eyes actress)


Sharon: Thank you so very much for joining me today on Wednesday Spotlight, Loren. It’s been a pleasure chatting with you. And thank you for playing the role of Michael DeVeccio so well. Can you give readers your website to learn more about you and your acting?

Wednesday Spotlight with Miss Mae

Hello and welcome back to Wednesday Spotlight! Oliver and I took a little summer break for the month of June and sailed to the Greek Isles! But now we are ready to resume our Wednesday interviews. Many of you are fans of today’s guest. With no further ado, let’s have a warm welcome for my good friend, the one and only Miss Mae!



Thunderous applause explodes as the sweet Southern Bell sachets through the rose arbor and onto the verandah. Looking fresh and lovely in a sundress and sun bonnet, Miss Mae blows kisses and hugs her friend.



Sharon: How’s it going, Miss Mae? Keeping cool in these dog days of summer?



MM: Absolutely, no! I’m perishing in Georgia’s heat! (Miss Mae snatches off the sun bonnet to vigorously fan herself with the straw brim.)



Looking bronze and polished from his month in the islands, Oliver saunters out, leisurely pushing the silver caddy brimming with refreshments. Clearing his throat, he pours the rich robust coffee into dainty floral cups, sets out a platter of chocolate brownies, fudge and petite Devil’s Food cakes. Catching Miss Mae’s eye, he snaps her crisp linen napkin and folds it as tight as an accordion. Casting her a wicked wink, he rolls up the sleeves of his white shirt and pumps his biceps, sporting his new tattoo, a pair of tumbling dice.



Sharon: He’s been wanting to get a tattoo for some time now, and when we passed the tattoo parlor, I double dared him to do it. He whined like a girl and made me hold his hand.



MM: Let me see that tattoo, Oliver. (Miss Mae gives a critical squint to said artwork.) Hmm, that resembles a bottle of Grandpappy Beauregard’s elixir.



Sharon: LOL Let’s chat a bit about your latest book, The Mishaps of Gumdrop Island. Sharon holds up her copy. Or better yet, why not read the blurb?


MM: Allow me. Miss Mae clears her throat, and reads aloud: ‘Adventurer Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh to the rescue! After convincing a lost damsel she must leave No place In Particular and come away to his Marshmallow Mansion on Gumdrop Island, (what is that crazy music that plays whenever those three words are spoken?), she enters the world of Yuri’s confectionary plantation. His oddball staff, as varied in character as a box of assorted chocolates, adds their own flavor of delicious nuttiness. When Yuri realizes his newest arrival is cousin to Mort the Mothball Millionaire, the quest is on to sail to Moldy Corners.

But why do those spooky, sharp beaked vultures watch from the fence railing?’



Sharon: Tell us a bit about the setting, the genre, and the interesting cast of characters.



MM: Before I begin, have you ever wondered where all the chocolate that people consume originally came from? And I don’t mean the supermarkets, either. They had to get it from somewhere. So, okay, I’ll allow they purchased it from factories. But where did those factories get the chocolates, or jelly beans, or licorice sticks? They all came from a wonderful isle named Gum Drop Island. The confectionary plantation is owned by Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh, and he has a…um, ahem…unique…assortment of staff. Moose, who eats more chocolate than he helps to produce; Cuddles, who will fight any manner of beast to protect her little darlings; Telly, the fastest artist a palette ever saw; Ms. Whales, the authority on Ways of Civilization, and several others who, last but not least, is Heathcliff the possum.



Sharon: I must admit when I read it, not having a clue what it was about, I was pleasantly surprised. But given your fertile imagination, it’s easy to see how you spun this delightful tale for children of all ages. When I read it, I found myself going back in time to those lazy days of summer when the kids in the neighborhood played all day long, not by the power of the Internet, but by the power of the imagination. Don’t you agree that times were better back then, Miss Mae?



MM: I really do, Sharon. Childhood was nothing more than laughter and games in those days. Remember hopscotch on the sidewalks, paper dolls, and jacks? I usually didn’t pass beyond my threesies, but oh, the challenge of trying!



Sharon: I was never very good at jacks but died trying! Now, back to the story. I love the names you chose like Gumdrop Island, Marshmallow Mansion, the Good Ship Lollipop and so many more. Tell us why or how you selected them?



MM: When I decided the story would center around chocolate (have I mentioned chocolate is my most favorite thing in the whole world, by the way?), I knew it was important to have names that referenced and appealed to the sweet tooth in all of us!



Sharon: They sure do! Did you always have such a vivid imagination, and if so, did you and your cousins and friends often act out plays and movies?



MM: I greatly appreciate the comment about my “vivid imagination”, but you know, I don’t think I do. To me, I’m as ho-hum as this fly choking in my lemonade. (Miss Mae flicks the critter out of her glass with an accurately aimed swat.) But when all we kids got together I was a follower (I was the youngest, so this was the safest route). I don’t recall that we acted out any movies. Our evenings were usually spent with playing ‘tag’ or ‘frozen statues’.



Sharon: Will there be more of the adventures of Sir Yuri and Captain Bootlegs and the inhabitants of Gumdrop Island?



MM: I’m going to see how interest is regarding this first episode before I decide. Personally, I hope so. I want to know what happens since they’ve now reached Moldy Corners!



Sharon: I must admit to reflecting on the game Candy Land. Did this have any impact on your story?



MM: I never played that! You’ll have to tell me about it, it sounds delicious!



Sharon: We’ll save that for another day, but it was a fun and delicious game. Now, tell us what kind of message you would like to teach young kids today through The Mishaps of Gumdrop Island?



MM: To not be afraid to laugh, and that it’s okay to be nothing but downright silly at times.



Oliver comes out with his copy, holds it up and smiles a beguiling smile. “If I might be so bold as to request an autograph, Miss Mae?”



MM: I thought you’d never ask! But for this especial event, I have a fitting autograph helper. (Miss Mae reaches into her beach bag and unveils -- Heathcliff! Grinning from ear to ear, the possum dazzles Sharon with his dagger sharp row of pearly whites and then proceeds to ink his paw and stamps it upon Oliver’s book. Oliver, blinking at the creature’s attire of trenchcoat and fedora, takes a careful step backward.)



Sharon: Sweet! Okay, Oliver, if you can stop pumping your biceps and watching the dice tumble, might I bother you for dessert?



Snatching up his copy of the book, Oliver strolls off whistling. He returns later with chocolate cream pie slathered with whipped cream. With great theatrics, he slices it and feeds Miss Mae a bite.



MM: Mmm, yummy. Oh! Sorry, Oliver! Was that your finger?



Sharon: Well, sadly, Miss Mae, this brings us to the end of our hour together. Before you go, tell us where readers can purchase The Mishaps of Gumdrop Island and all of your books.



MM: Right now, The Mishaps of Gum Drop Island is ebook at Smashwords, but I’m working to get it into print. (bows at the whistles and hoots of approval) Here is the link at SW: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/18182 And my other books, my romantic mysteries, can be purchased in print at Amazon, B&N, and other retailers, and in ebook form at Smashwords.



Sharon: Thank you so much for such an entertaining story, and for being our first guest after summer break. Wishing you loads of sales and all good things.



MM: Thank you, Sharon. I’m so glad you enjoyed your visit at Gum Drop Island. Wait! What’s that music?
