I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Lady Death over fraps at Danny's Coffee Shop. Here is the interview!
Shay Caroline: Thank you so much for agreeing to this. Did you have any trouble finding Danny's?
Lady Death: No, I Mapquested it, so getting here was no problem. But...
LD: Well, when I tried to find a place to park, all the meters were expired.
SC: I hate when that happens.
LD: I know, right?
SC: So, other than the meters, what do you think of our little town?
LD: To be honest, honey, it's pretty dead here on a Sunday night.
SC: You're killing me.
LD: It's what I do!
SC: So...have you always been Lady Death? Or did you have other jobs before this one?
LD: I did stand up comedy for a while.
SC: Oh really? And how did that go?
LD: I died out there.
SC: Of course you did. Anything else?
LD: I worked as a gardener.
SC: How long did you do that?
LD: Not long. I had a black thumb. But as you can see, I found a way to make it work for me.
SC: You go, girl.
SC: Where did all this happen? Where is Lady Death from, originally?
LD: This may surprise your readers, but I am from a rural area just outside of West Branch, Michigan.
SC: Well now, that is surprising. You look so put together, I would have thought you were a big city girl.
SC: Do you still have a home there?
LD: No, I don't. There was a developer who had plans for building a retirement community with a big eighteen hole golf course. He bought the farm.
SC: I think a lot of people picture Death as a scary figure wearing a black hood and carrying a scythe, not as a stylish woman wearing an Ann Taylor suit and heels.
LD: Do you like the look?
SC: Yes, very much. The heels, especially, are TDF.
LD: I saw them and they took my breath away. I had to have them.
SC: Your hair looks fantastic, too. Is that your natural shade?
LD: No. I dyed.
SC: Wow, it looks great. You must get noticed a lot. Are you in a relationship?
LD: I was.
SC: That doesn't sound good. Can you share?
LD: Sure. It started out beautifully. He told me that, when he first saw me, his heart actually skipped a beat. Several beats, in fact.
SC: That sounds exciting! What went wrong?
LD: The feelings died.
SC: If I had to guess, I'd say that this has happened to you before.
LD: It has. But why dig up the past?
SC: Fair enough. So, if you're not out painting the town, what does Lady Death do when she isn't working?
LD: I'm a movie buff.
SC: Really? That's interesting!
LD: Yes, I watch upwards of a dozen movies a week.
SC: How do you find time to watch so many?
LD: Well...I sort of cheat. I only like to watch the endings.
SC: It's been lovely spending this time with you, Lady Death.
LD: Are we done?
SC: We are. I'm sorry to cut this short, but I've got a deadline.
LD: Touche, Shay.
SC: I thought you'd like that!
