Special Christmas Interview with Author H. D'Agostino

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

I don't really have a favorite. I love the movies that Lifetime Movie Networks runs during the Christmas season. Last year there was one that was a modern day Little Women.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Hmmm...Charlie Hunnam. He's yummy!

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

Would you believe they are the same? I'm sure that as a kid I could tell you all kinds of things that may not have gone as planned, but the Christmas of 98 was both the best and worst to date. It was the first Christmas my hubby and I were together. We were dating long distance back then, and it snowed on Christmas Eve. I lived in the South, and was so worried that I wouldn't be able to fly North to see him the next morning. We hadn't seen each other for four months. The airport was shut down. I was a nervous mess the entire night, but in the end it worked out and I made my flight.

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

It would be a tie between baking (I love to make cookies and sweets) and spending time with my family. I have two young children, and watching them as they experience all the magic Christmas offers is something that I can't put into words.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Austin from Unbreak Me. He proposed to Melanie on Christmas Eve in front of a roaring fire as they danced barefoot to soft Christmas music. It's probably one of the sweetest, most romantic scenes I've written to date.

Thanks, Heather!

Samantha Connelly has been on the run since she was seven years old. Forced into Witness Protection after her father saw something he shouldn’t has caused her to learn to blend in. She’s moved, changed her name, and her appearance more times than she can count over the last nineteen years all along wondering if it will ever end. Her handler, Kevin, along with her parents have assured her that it won’t be forever, but as the years tick by she’s slowly given up hope that she’ll ever be normal.

Now at 26, Sam has moved to Chicago and is working at The Rusty Nail as a bartender calling herself Mallory. Her father passed away two years before leaving her to finish what he started…put away the ‘bad guys’. Living on the run in hiding has been harder than she ever imagined, and finding love has always been out of the question. Who would want to be with someone they couldn’t be honest with? She’s resigned herself to being alone, until… Brian walks in.

Brian Sellers is everything Sam has been trying to avoid her entire life. He’s clad in leather and torn jeans, donning several tattoos…all-in-all a bad boy. When their eyes connect one evening, everything she’s ever told herself falls to the wayside as an indescribable draw pulls her to him. He’s sexy and domineering, and something about him reminds her of a boy she used to know.

The more time she spends with Brian, the more she wants him, but…Brian is not everything he seems to be. When Sam happens to see the tat on his wrist, the same tat that her father saw all those years ago, she realizes she’s flirting with the enemy. Brian has no idea that he’s hanging out with the one girl his boss wants dead.

Can Sam hide her identity from the first man she’s had real feelings for? What will Brian do when he finds out who she really is? Can love really conquer all?

Being Nobody is the first book in The Witness series.
