I had the pleasure of appearing on JD Hallidays show Characters Gone Mad today the link to the podcast is listed above: We got a good glimpse as to what Laura Fitz would do in certain situations.
If it worked out that Laura was the building manager for Ethel and Fred Mertzes, and Lucy was Laura’s confidant, would Laura ever solve a murder? How could you see this happen, if so?
If Laura did solve one Lucy and Ethel would be there to mess things up and have a lot of ‘splaining to do, The murder would get solved with a lot of fun and mayhem and it would keep Lucy off Ricky’s back about showbiz.
What’s Laura’s backstory using Star Trek?—She was a member of the Sherlockian species. imagine a planet of detectives all getting into trouble and spock would be in there too as everyone was so logical
What special skill does Laura have to help promote the books she is in?—I think she would go out to book fairs and tell stories about the dead bodies from her POV—I think it would sell the books quite nicely.
Could you have the skills to help Laura if you were a character alongside her in your next book? Would Laura like you being there? Actually she would as she likes to bounce theories off people and gibbons gets busy. I would be someone to get in trouble with.
If Laura could choose a superpower what would Laura pick? Invisibility so she could solve crimes without getting abducted everytime
How would Laura describe herself in three words? stubborn, sarcastic and persistent
What movie or TV show that you like would you like Laura to sleuth in? Castle would be fun—she and Richard could get along well and cause some headaches for Beckett…they would talk about his books too.
A murder is committed on the floor that Stella, the bitchy tenant association president lives on. Stella believes Laura is the murderer. What can Laura do to convince Stella otherwise? OR, does she even need to?
She doesn’t feel she needs to explain anything to the woman. However she works with the cops to solve the murder and clear her name which perturbs Stella to no end.
Laura and her husband, Gerry are buying a house to get away from the tenants, and the murders. They are doing a show like Property Virgins to find the right house. BUT in one of the houses they tour they find a body! What would Laura do next?
She handles it after first barfing on the victim and pissing of the forensics team. She gets in the way of the investigation and spends a night in jail yet again.
