My name’s Max Fergus, and I used to be pretty popular, you know? I am the quarterback of the football team and I was dating the head cheerleader. Life was good. Now though? Well it’s a little crazy. This girl, Anna Lissa Felidae showed up and I just fell head over ass for her. Turns out we’re connected on metaphysical level. Now my days are filled with learning to shift and fight, of course I still have to go to school too. They don’t just give you those A’s.
Sounds like a complicated life! Who’s your best friend? If they had to describe you in five words, what would they be?
My best friend is Tony Gunari. He’s the best friend a guy could have, always has your back. If Tony had to describe me, I bet the first word out of his mouth would be Lucky. Things just seem to happen for me. As for the other four words… hmmm, I’ll go with smart, funny, protective and friendly.
Well, now we know about your best friend; therefore, I'll bet you can guess my next question. Who’s your enemy? If they had to describe you in five words, what would they be?
That would be Frederick Lyon. He doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall. I’m just in his way because Anna is my Soul Mate. Though I have been giving him a hard time, so he might call me a pain in the ass, cocky, useless, weak, and forgettable, however the only one that is true, is the first one. I am a pain in his ass.
Which song sums up your life and why?
Lucky Man by the Verve, because I’ve always thought I had a charmed life. Turns out, that wasn’t too far from the truth.
Great choice! What about motivation? What motivates you you?
My love for Anna, my family and friends, keeping those I love safe.
It sounds like you really dig this Anna girl. If your love life had to be summed up in any one book title, what would it be and why?
Fierce Love, because I couldn’t love anyone more fiercely than I do Anna. I would conquer the moon for one of her smiles, move mountains for one of her kisses, and walk a million miles to be by her side.
That's so sweet! Can you tell us a secret about you that few/no one else knows?
Every now and then I sneak a soda, but don’t tell Anna, she worries about me.
It'll be our little secret and I'll change topics so it stays that way. Can you describe an incident in your life that’s helped mold you into the person you are today?
My life was instantly changed the moment Anna walked into my homeroom. Meeting her, becoming the man she needed me to be, helped form who I am today.
I think I already know the answer to this question, but I'll ask anyway. What are you passionate about?
Anna, always. Of course I also love football and my ’69 classic Vette.
What would I find in your couch cushions?
Good question. My little sister, Abbey, has probably hidden food in there, along with Dad’s car keys, and probably some doll clothes and coins.
Sounds like a great place to get lost. Speaking of getting lost, what’s your biggest fear?
Not being there to protect Anna, which drives her nuts because she says she can protect herself just fine.
Speaking of being driven nuts, what pet peeve drives you crazy?
Liars drive me crazy, but other than that I’m pretty easy going.
In five words, describe your ideal mate.
Funny, loving, sexy, courageous, smart
Is the glass half-full or half-empty? Also, what’s it filled with?
The glass is half-full and filled with water, I know boring, but I’m a shifter, so necessary.
If you were a food, what would you be and why?
Interesting question… I don’t think I have an answer for that.
What about money? If you had one million dollars, what would you do with it?
I’d share it with my family and friends.

Back Cover Blurb:
When the girl of his dreams walks into his homeroom class one October morning, Max Fergus, a seventeen year old quarterback and star student, has his world turned upside down; everything he has ever thought about himself and his life is changed in that instant and nothing will ever be the same again, because once you know you aren’t human, there’s no going back, no pretending you are less than you are.
Anna Lissa Felidae, a pure blooded shifter has been searching for her soul mate, the one guy that was meant for her, and just when she is sure she is about to run out of time, Diana, goddess of the hunt, appears to her and sends her in the right direction. With another shifter on her trail, one who is determined to have her no matter what the cost, Anna has just three short weeks to convince Max he is a pure blooded shifter, among other things, and teach him to fight so they can be together. With the help of a few Fae friends, a motley crew of shifters and Max’s best friend Tony, they are sure to win.

As a writer, it can be difficult to find enough time in the day to get everything done. Would you like to share your favorite ‘quick and easy’ recipe? I don’t think there is a quick and easy recipe to anything worth doing in life. However, I do have a favorite quote that I do my best to follow. “There is no try, only do.” Yes, I just quoted Yoda. And it works for just about everything.
Anything else? I hope you all enjoyed meeting Max and check him out in Soul Mates: Scent.
Great interview, Max and Elizabeth! I wish you much luck with Soul Mates: Scent!
