Character Interview ~ Kazi Faron from Ronie Kendig's Firethorn

Introducing Kazi Faron, covert operative, a woman with many secrets whose reluctance to share is going to drive Nightshade's Griffin "Legend" Riddell to the edge of reason!

Catch Griffin & Kazi's story in Firethorn, the explosive final story in the Discarded Heroes series, releasing January, 2012.


So most people are intimidated by the big guy, the boys call Legend! What were your first impressions?

He’s a mountain of a man with a very complicated, very rich inner soul.

Tell us something sweet about Griffin that is too often hidden by all that muscle (just don’t tell him I’m the one asking – LOL!)

Griffin keeps his private life to himself…but that’s also where he’s the ‘deepest.’ Did you know that he saved up all his money and bought his grandmother—the woman who raised him—her first brand-new home, in a nice, posh neighborhood? If that doesn’t tell you something about the guy, you’re blind, deaf, and just plain dumb.

A little birdie told me you have some trust issues! Why is that?

Who is there to trust when everyone betrays you? I’m not even sure I trust Griffin fully. He knows that. He’s okay with that as long as I’m trying. Let’s move on. There are bigger things in life than my problems.

As an undercover operative, as a woman how do you compartmentalise when you have to?

It’s the only way to survive. Work is work. Play is play. If you mix the two, trouble is waiting. *shrugs* I don’t think about it; compartmentalizing just happens.

When your undercover days are over, what is your greatest desire?

I’ve been told the only way out of this is to die, so…why dream about it?

You know the Nightshade boys ~ your thoughts on each one in 5 words or less?

Max – intense and rock solid

Legend – boxed up and proud

Colton – religious, resilient, thoughtful

Canyon – quiet, intelligent, easy-going & yet determined

The Kid – misunderstood and under appreciated—he’s a goldmine!

Aladdin – stiff, stoic, formidable foe

Squirt – proud, incredible strategist

Thanks Kazi ~ say hi to the big fella!

Thanks, Rel. It's great to see Kazi coming to life. She's something else. :-D

Julia said...

Oooh...I can't wait. I'm loving the series so far.

Lydia said...

I love these character interviews, especially since great characters truly feel like real people. I really need to read this series because everything about it sounds fantastic.

Rel said...

Ronie ~ I think all your characters are "something else" so that is no surprise! Bring her on :)

Julia ~ the series keeps getting better and better!

Lydia ~ what is going on, girl?! Beg, borrow or buy Nightshade and Digitalis now :) You will adore this series, no question!! I promise you Ronie's characters are the realistic and will touch your heart like no other.

Is it January yet?

Rel said...

Renee - haha! We can dream :)

Sara said...

Love this! And I agree with Renee...January cannot come soon enought. :)

Sylvia said...

Is her name pronounced K-ah-z-ee or Kay-zee?

I'm on my knees begging! Please convince Barbour to let you write a story about The Kid. I think he's my favorite character. We don't mind five-book series.

This series is great!

Ronie Kendig said...

You ladies are making my whole week. THANK YOU!!

It's wild to see this feature on Kazi (pronounced KA-zee (short "a")) because I'm finishing up her story right now.

Sylvia--*mwah* That's a big wet kiss for saying that. I have to say...I think he's my favorite too. Marshall "The Kid" Vaughn adds so much to the series. I love him.

Ronie Kendig said...

Okay, the guys are mad at me for saying the Kid was my favorite. I should re-state that. He's *one* of my favorites. LOL Really, I can justify favoritism toward each of them in one way or another.

But I really do think Marshall brings something to the table the others don't. Shh...don't tell them I said that.

Rel said...

Ha! I can't decide either, Ronie. They all have something that is really appealing about them from Max's strength of spirit, Colton's deep faith, Canyon's compassion, Marshall's (The Kid) humour and vulnerability, Griff's loyalty and then there is Squirt and Aladdin ~ keeping what I think of them to myself for now ~ sigh!

I'll always have a soft spot for The Kid, though, isn't that so, Ronie ;-)

Sylvia ~ I totally agree on wishing for more Nightshade stories. Three more would be just about perfect!!

Unknown said...

Well, I'm fickle. My favorite happens to be whomever I'm reading about at the time. Just love'em all...and Barbour really should finish up the series with a tale of each magnificent hero....really, they should.

Rel, I'm a tad bit jealous, as I have a feeling you've met more of this team than I have:-) Rockin' feature, my dear sis-down-under!

Rel said...

Could be, Deena ;-) Great to have you drop by, my friend!
