Character name: Shay Robell
Book title: Spinechillers: Hair-Raising Tales by Q.L. Pearce
Tell me a little about yourself?
Well it’s not like everyone in town doesn’t already know about me. Last year I was the only freshman on the Queen’s Court at Saltlick Bluffs High. This year I intend to be prom queen.
Where do you live?
Saltlick Bluffs is on the Central California coast. It’s okay for now but I’m a big fish in a little pond. I can’t wait to graduate and move to New York or something. Then I can be a big fish in a big pond.
Who is the most important person in your life?
What was your childhood like?
Fine I guess. I live with my mom and latest stepdad. She’s been married a couple of times. In a way that’s cool. The stepdad always wants to make a good impression and win me over, so I usually get whatever I want. My parents mean well but they don’t understand the pressures of being one of…no…being the most popular girl at school. My mother has no taste so I’ve been picking out my own clothes since second grade.
Of all the people you've met, who would you LEAST like to be stuck in an elevator with?
My sixth grade homeroom teacher. She’s one of those Kumbaya types. You know? Everyone is valuable. We’re all in this together. Please!
What is the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?
My tiara from last year.
What is your biggest fear?
Getting into an accident I guess. I wouldn’t want to be scarred or something.
What is the most important thing that ever happened to you? Why?
I was in a music video for Cuthulu’s Cat. They shot part of it on the beach just off Yetter point. The band was out on the beach and there were some girls dancing on the jetty behind them. One of them fell and twisted her ankle. The producer saw me and asked if I wanted to replace her. Well duh! He gave me his card for when I get to New York.
Do you have any special talents or abilities?
I can do it all, model, dance, act. I’m smart too. I know how to get what I want.
How do you see your future?
On the cover of Vogue and as the CEO of something. Something big.
If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?
If you had a free day with no responsibilities, how would you spend it?
This is just between us, right? What I would really like to do is spend the day in boxer shorts and a baggy sweatshirt. I wouldn’t brush my hair or put on makeup. I’d just sit on the couch with a giant bag of sour cream potato chips and a pint of salted caramel ice cream, watching reruns of Shaun the Sheep. If you breathe a word of what I said I’ll deny it.
Where can we find out more about you?
I’m the absolutely most important character in Prom Date, the last story in Spinechillers: Hair-Raising Tales Book One.
