Today we are being joined by Nash Barron. In case you have missed who Nash is, he’s the brother of Ethan, Dare and Tess Barron, and the hero of the book Destiny by Carly Phillips. Nash agreed to come on today and answer our questions.
TBRG: Who has been the biggest influence in your life?
NB: It galls me to admit this but my oldest brother Ethan. Everything I’ve done in my life, good or bad, has been either to be like him when we were younger or to be the opposite of him after he left home at 18. My life seems to be defined by Ethan’s behavior … which I think explains my anger towards him.
TBRG: What is the one thing your readers would be the most surprised to know about you?
NB: I’m not a bad guy just because I don’t worship at St Ethan’s feet. I’ve stepped up and I’ve been the adult since Ethan took off. I did everything I could for my younger brother Dare. I snuck him clothes in foster care, brought him extra food, and watched out for him.
TBRG: Where is the one place you have always wanted to go, a place on your bucket list?
NB: I’ve never left Serendipity except for college. I think I’d like to see London, Big Ben, maybe travel Europe.
TBRG: Who’s your favorite author to read?
NB: John Grisham. I like lawyer stories.
TBRG: What book are you reading now?
NB: The Litigator by John Grisham
TBRG: If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be?
NB: I followed in my adopted father’s footsteps. They gave me so much I wanted them to be proud. I never let myself think beyond that so I really don’t know.
TBRG: What is your guilty pleasure?
NB: Sneaking around with Kelly behind Tess’ back. What kind of question is that?
TBRG: Who is on your playlist?
NB: No idea. Kelly put it together for me.
TBRG: If you had a day to do whatever you wanted what would you do?
NB: Really? Spend the day with Kelly. And not all of it in bed either. Maybe a good part of it. Then I’d take her for a romantic dinner. Or maybe I’d spirit her off to Manhattan for the day. A carriage ride and then a show and dinner, then the night at a luxurious hotel. She deserves that.
TBRG: How’s your relationship with your brothers now?
NB: As this story is told, not so great. I’m odd man out and it sucks. Dare’s come around and hangs out with Ethan and Faith, Tess still doesn’t want to like me, and I’m suffering. I can’t tell you how things progressed with my brothers after Destiny because I’ll ruin the story!
TBRG: How did you feel about Carly telling your story?
NB: She didn’t give me a choice. She pushed and prodded and invaded my privacy. She made me look at my emotions and feelings … and really what guy wants to do that?
TBRG: Using 3-5 adjectives how would you describe yourself?
NB: Loyal, upstanding, … ok maybe a little uptight. Can’t think of more. What’s with these questions anyway?
TBRG: Using 3-5 adjectives how would you describe your siblings?
NB: Pains in the Ass – that’s four words. Good for you?
TBRG: Using 5 adjectives how would you describe Kelly?
NB: Hot; smart; gorgeous; understanding; and did I say hot?
TBRG: What do you love most about Kelly?
NB: She puts up with me. ‘Nuff said.
TBRG: What do you think is going to happen to Dare when his story is told?
NB: Since I know what happens and can’t tell … well here’s a hint. Dare has more secrets than I knew about – and after he blows my world apart in DESTINY – he’s got to pull his life together in KARMA. How he does that when faced with his past? You’ll have to wait until May to find out.
If you haven’t read Nash’s book then you need to rectify this immediately.
***Now for the really cool part Carly is giving away a copy of the book that started it all Serendipity (Nash’s brother Ethan’s story) all you have to do is leave a message for Carly telling her why you love her books (my idea not her’s). This is open to EVERYONE!***
