Virginia owner of a Speakeasy talks about "Willow Pond"

Please welcome character 
Virginia Kingsley
to our blog today!
She is the star of the book Willow Pond
Created by Carol Tibaldi

Let's welcome her to our site and find out what her story is all about!

 I can see Laura as she enters the studio and what a presence she gives off. Almost taking command of the room as the guys here all stare at her dressed in her Chanel Suit and rising above many of them with her tall frame, she looks to be just under 6' tall. She comes over to me and smiles gracefully, but I can see a strength in her that belies the female in front of me. Her hands strong and soft are enhanced in their beauty with her bright red fingernail polish. 

Welcome Virginia, I'm so glad that you made it here today to talk to us about Willow Pond.  Tell us what the book is about.

I blame myself for Todd’s kidnapping. 

Way to start off an interview! A Kidnapping! 
If I hadn’t gotten involved with that louse Rudy, none of it would have happened.

All because of a man, huh? 
I knew I couldn’t trust him, but I let my guard down.

Us woman are known for doing that at the wrong times. 
Harry had been telling me for a long time that I was getting soft and he was right. He always is. When Rudy was pumping me with all those questions I should have known that he was after something. 

He had you distracted, didn't he?

Maybe if he hadn’t been so good in bed he wouldn’t have fooled me. No, that’s an excuse, it was my fault.

Why was it your fault?
Having to lie to Laura was the hardest thing of all. I hated doing this, but I had to do it to protect her. But I also had a selfish motive for lying to her; I didn’t want to loose her love. She’s not my daughter, but I’ve always loved her like she was

So was Laura the reason he was kidnapped? 

My lifestyle may have been the reason Todd was kidnapped. That’s difficult for me to say since I’m a very proud woman and don’t like to admit when I’m wrong. Pride isn’t a good quality for anyone to have, but I have enough for it for ten women.

lol... I know the feeling. 
I won’t stop looking until I find Todd because I want Laura to be happy again. I want to see that little boy put his arms around his mother’s neck. I want to hear them both laugh. I feel like nothing in our lives will ever be right again until Todd comes home.

So... Todd is Laura's son... Ok things make a bit more sense now. 

Virginia, We all want to be different, so what is the one thing you wish your creator had done differently with you?

I don’t know. Maybe made me Queen. I would have liked to have been richer and maybe spent time in Italy with a handsome Italian lover. Seriously, I wish I hadn’t behaved so stupidly with Rudy. I wished I would have been more careful.

Hindsight is 20/20... we all know that. 

If you could have added something to the story, and your creator would have let you, what would that have been?

Maybe a little more about what Laura was going through during her pregnancy when she refused to have much of anything to do with me.

lol... that puts a little mystery to things... What do you love best about yourself? What do you like least?

Despite what everything thinks, I have a big heart and I like that about myself. It’s the thing that surprises people the most about me. I hate the fact that I always think I’m always right. I’m starting to learn that I’m not.

That is a hard thing to learn. What part of the book was the hardest for you and your creator to work through?

Finding Todd and bringing him home safely. 

Is there a sequel for this book? If so, what do you want to accomplish in the next book.  If not, do you wish you could continue your story? 

Yes, there is going to be a sequel. Hopefully we will all learn and grow.

Thank you Virginia for coming today and for telling us about Willow Pond.  I hope people take a few minutes to find out more!
