Brenham: Good afternoon, Dani. Forgive me, do you mind if I address you as Dani or would you prefer Ms. Mueller?
Dani: Dani ist in Ordnung.
Brenham: Umm, our readers are English-speakers and may not understand German. So, if you wouldn’t mind.
Dani: I’m sorry. Dani is fine.
Brenham: You were born in Germany, right?
Dani: Yes, I lived in Garmisch-Partenkirchen until I married an American Air Force officer.
Brenham: Exactly where is Garmisch-Partenkirchen?
Dani: South of Munich right by the Germany-Austria border.
Brenham: Let’s talk about you. How would you describe yourself in two words?
Dani: Resourceful and spirited. Except after Parnell . . .
Brenham: Okay, in Price of Justice, you had quite a rough time . . .
Dani: Yes, no thanks to you.
Brenham: Well, I had to create conflict and suspense so readers would find the book interesting.
Dani: I understand that but you didn’t have to make it that rough. You did some pretty awful things to me. Taking my daughter, the Burtons stalking me, and . . .
Brenham: Wait, Dani. Let’s not tell the readers the story or else they won’t see the need to buy the book. I did do some really nice things to you too.
Dani: Yeah, well, you did introduce me to Jason and his little daughter, Shannon. I just love her. Thank you for that. But you . . .
Brenham: Now, now. Don’t tell the story. Did you know a few readers posted reviews saying they really liked you in Price of Justice?
Dani: They actually said that? Aw, that was so sweet of them.
Brenham: So what did you think of Austin, Texas?
Dani: Next to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Austin is a beautiful city except for the summer heat.
Brenham: Now, in Price of Justice, you moved to Austin from Sacramento, California?
Dani: Yes, to get away from the Burtons.
Brenham: See, another nice thing I did for you.
Dani: Oh really? Those nice things seemed to have had a way of turning into some really terrible things.
Brenham: Would you like to be a heroine in the sequel?
Dani; That depends. What are you going to do to me?
Brenham: Actually, at this point, I’m not sure. But if you don’t want the job, I could team Jason and his daughter up with someone else.
Dani: Don’t you dare. But I know you’ll do whatever you want and I’ll just have to endure it.
Brenham: Well, I’ll try to be nicer to you in the next novel.
Dani: I’d appreciate it.
Brenham: What’s one thing you’d like to have happen to you in the next novel?
Dani: Oh, that’s easy. Become Jason’s wife.
Brenham: Okay, our time is up. I want to thank you for stopping by. Is there anything you’d like to say to the readers?
Dani: Yes, except for the rough times, I really loved being a heroine in Price of Justice.
