Character Interview: Grave Consequences Cass Donovan #characterinterview @lenagregory03

We are really excited to have Cass Donovan here with us today at Blogging Authors! Cass comes from the inside pages of Lena Gregory's new book, GRAVE CONSEQUENCES. Take it away, Cass!

What is your name? Cass Donovan

What do you look like? I’m about 5’7” with long blonde hair and blue eyes. I try to stay slim, often taking long walks on the beach with my dog, Beast, but eating at the diner, the deli, and the bakery more often than not makes that a bit of a challenge.

Where are you today and what are you doing? Today, like most days, I’ll be working at Mystical Musings, my psychic shop on the boardwalk. I have several individual readings planned, and with tourist season starting, I’m hoping my group reading tonight will bring a nice crowd. Before the group reading, though, I’m hoping to get a few minutes to spend on the beach with Beast, followed by dinner at the diner with Bee and Stephanie.

You come face to face with your worse enemy. How do you react? It depends. If it’s someone who’s done something to me, I will usually just walk away to avoid a confrontation. However, if it’s someone who’s done something to one of my friends, that’s a different story. Then, I’m sure to get my point across to the person that they’ve done something unacceptable, be it by direct confrontation or something a bit more subtle.

How would your parents describe you? They’d describe me as a hard worker. Someone who’s kind and sensitive, with a gift they believed more strongly in than I do.

Who is your best friend? Bee Maxwell, who owns Dreamweaver Designs, a designer dress shop down the boardwalk from Mystical Musings, and Stephanie Lawrence, who handles all of my finances and is married to a local detective, are my two best friends. We spend most of our free time together, occasionally, ending up in some sort of trouble. Apparently, I’m a bad influence, according to Stephanie’s husband, Tank, anyway.

Are you faith-oriented? I am somewhat faith-oriented, though not in a traditional sort of way. I do believe in God, and I know there is something beyond this world, since I communicate with its inhabitants on a regular basis.

Are you married or in a relationship? I am in a sort of relationship with Luke Morgan. We tried the long-distance thing, but it wasn’t working out so great. Now that Luke has moved to Bay Island, things are going better, though he’s not thrilled with my continued involvement in his police investigations and really doesn’t know what to make of my psychic abilities.

Do you have children? Not yet, but I am hoping to become a godmother soon.

Thank you so much for having me!

Inside the Book

Author: Lena Gregory
Publisher: Beyond the Page Publishing
Pages: 310
Genre: Cozy Mystery


Cass Donovan is reminded that you can’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes from the dead . . .

When stories begin circulating of a centuries-old ghost haunting the Bay Island lighthouse, Cass is caught up in mystical happenings of her own, with countless voices from the beyond all clamoring for her attention with dire warnings. But before she has a chance to learn whether there’s a connection between the rumored ghost and her restless visitors, the lighthouse keeper mysteriously falls to his death, and Cass’s reputation for communing with the dead lands her right in the middle of the police investigation.

Cass knows the victim was no saint, as he made little effort to hide his philandering ways from his wife or anyone else, and often acted out with no thought for the feelings of others. But had he finally gone too far, or were there more menacing motives behind his murder? As Cass begins building a list of suspects, including the man’s supposedly grieving wife and a mysterious new woman in town, she also turns her ear to those otherworldly voices, hoping for a clue. And as she begins to close in on the culprit, she realizes too late that if she’s not careful, she’ll soon be communicating with the dead in person . . .
