Interview with Sarelle McGarran
Tell us about yourself.
Sar: My full name is Sarelle McGarran. I live on an old horse farm in New York, and work part time at a metal fabrication shop. I was a widow when I met Danial close to a year ago, and we fell in love. Our brief romance combusted pretty spectacularly after only a few months. With the unwitting help of a friend’s spell, Theo and I shared a haunting dream. Months later, we began a relationship--
Tell us about the vampire Danial. We hear you’re back with him, now that Theo is MIA.
Sar (defensive): You’re making it sound like I couldn’t wait to trade up. That isn’t the case at all! Theo is currently missing, and has been for several months now. Meanwhile, I’m struggling to raise Theo’s daughter Elle by myself. She’s a werecougar like he was. Danial has been like a father to her in the short time he’s been back in my life, and yes, we are moving in with him shortly. It’s best for Elle, and for me.
What do you think is your strongest point?
Sar (a bit calmer): I think there is nothing I can’t do. I always give anything I try to do 100%.
What would Theo say is your strongest point?
Sar (bites lip): He always admired my willingness to accept him, fur and all. He loved that I accepted Elle as my own, that I wanted to be her mom even when she wasn’t my own child.
What would Theo say is your biggest weakness?
Sar (wipes at tears): He’d say I tended to rush in before I should. I do that a lot, when I feel it’s the right thing to do. It’s gotten me into trouble before.
If you were given your fondest wish, what would it be?
Sar: That Theo would be here, now. That Danial would have found him, or he would never have gone missing. If we knew he was dead, at least we’d have closure. But not to know what happened to him rips me up inside. I keep thinking I’d know if he died. But the more time goes by, the more uncertain I get about that.
What do you wish I had asked you? Please ask and answer it now.
Sar: I wish you had asked me about Elle, Theo’s daughter… and mine. (Sar smiles). She’s getting big, and she’s so smart! I see so much of Theo in her. She has his eyes. I never thought I would have children of my own. But I’m so happy to have her. I was so angry at Tawny, when she showed up pregnant at my door. I was angry at Theo. But his mistake was one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. I will never have really lost him, because I have Elle.
