He is the star of the book Harry Charters Chronicles
Let’s welcome him to our site and find out what his story is all about!
As I sit in my chair waiting for Harry to come in and get comfortable, I can’t help but notice how sharp dressed he is in his three piece suit. My eyebrows raise as I take in the dark raincoat he has draped over his shoulders and the hint of mystery that comes with the fedora he is wearing. Smoke curls up around his face adding some further mystery to him as his cigarette hangs from his lips.
Is he swaying as he walks? He seems a bit unstable as he makes his way to me, as if he might have been tying one one before he arrives. My question is answered as he takes a seat and I can smell alcohol radiating off of him. Oh this should be an interesting interview….
So he listened to you… that’s good. What kind of stories did you tell him?
There are stories of murder, betrayal, gang warfare and a haunting lost child story.
A really big variety. What is one he wrote about?
Guess he was listening well when you spoke with him.
I bet that makes a good story to read though.
Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here in the studio either.
I sure hope I’m not one who deserves to be hurt. Harry, let’s talk about a few other things.
If you could have added something to the story, and your creator would have let you, what would that have been?
Other than repeating what I?ve just said, I woulda been keen to see some more atmosphere in the tales. Damn schmuck never talked about the weather, the duds or the jazz and blues playing outta my wireless. Man can only tell half a story.
lol…. What do you love best about yourself? What do you like least?
Yes…I think I would prefer Melancholy Drunk Harry to the other… But that is my personal preference. What part of the book was the hardest for you and your creator to work through?
The Smell of Perfume is a tale which haunts me. It was a case I solved but took no satisfaction from. I saw things I never want to see or speak about again. Graham was also badly affected and the night I told ?im the story he drank more?n I?ve seen him drink either before or since.
Sounds like a very intense story Harry. Is there a sequel for your story?
He?s talked about doin? another collection of short stories and flash fiction. He?s also been pestering me to tell him about the case which went wrong and set me off drinkin?. That?s a bigger tale though and would take quite a bit of telling.
Maybe that would be a good idea. I’m very glad you came to join us today. Your stories sound very interesting and I know I find myself wondering much more about you. I hope that our readers stay around and check out more about your books and your creator!
By the way, can I get someone to drive you home. I’m not so sure you should be driving right now.
