Hiya, Mac! I’m so excited to get to know you a little better, thanks so much for joining us today and answering some questions for us! We’ve gotten to know you a bit in some of your friends’ stories, but tell us a little about your story.
Hi Jane! Thanks so much for having me. My story has been a long time coming, if you ask me. I waited forever to get Marcy back and then BAM! She goes and lays this huge secret and betrayal on me! Our story is about getting past hurts new and old all while trying to rescue our son from a madman.
What’s the best part about being in love?
Honestly? I’m still trying to figure that all out. Being in love has been a torture to me for the last decade. It’s hard to remember what the good parts about it were.
Secrets play a big part in your story, is there any secret someone could keep that you couldn’t forgive?
Marcy came pretty damn close to that line. Anything that is life altering. She kept my son a secret for twelve years. That’s about the closest thing to unforgivable as you can get in my book!
If we met in person what would I notice first about you?
*Chuckles* I’m pretty unremarkable. It makes my line of work easier. I guess the thing you would notice is that I’m about 6”4’ and built like a tank. Also good in my line of work. It does make it a little harder to remain unseen though.
If you were going to die tomorrow what would you do today?
I would spend the day with my family. Spend time with my son at the park! Maybe have a barbecue poolside and then the rest of the night… well I’m not sure Marcy would like it if I told you the rest. Whatever it was we would be naked. *Laughs*
Hot weather or cold?
I grew up in Baltimore. Some of the coldest winters ever. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. Brrrr! That’s one of the reasons I moved to LA. I like it warm, but not hot. I never want to go back to the damn desert. It was brutal heat.
What do you like most about yourself?
I’m honest and hard working. I’m loyal.
What do you like least about yourself?
I have been known to jump to conclusions or act before I have all the facts. When someone I care about is in danger, I have a tendency to act first. Griffin is the opposite. He’s a planner and balances my rashness out.
How much can you bench press?
What? Why? Never mind this is a romance website. *chuckles* of course you want to know something like that. *raises speculative eyebrow* I could easily bench press 270 with a good spotter.
Dogs or cats?
Dogs. I definitely like dogs. They are some of the smartest animals. There were some service dogs in the Army that saved all of our lives a time or two. A cat could never do that.
Who was your first love?
My first and only love is Marcy. I will never love anyone the way I love her. (Did I lay it on thick enough?) *chuckles*
Are you trustworthy?
I like to believe I am. I don’t keep secrets from my brothers. I know how bad lies can affect other people.
If you could have any job in the world what would it be?
I have it. Protecting people is the best job in the world.
What is the scariest thing you’ve ever experienced?
The day when Marcy almost died in that Humvee with the rest of the men in there. When that IED hit next to it and blew it sky high, I thought my world was ending. We lost five men that day and I almost lost my heart as well.
What would be the one piece of advice you would give your son?
I would tell him that lies and secrets are never the answer. And when you find something or someone who is worth it to go after it. Don’t live with the regrets I have lived with every day for more than a decade.
