Today at A2H we have the notoriously fab Grim Reaper, Charley Davidson. Welcome Charley, we are so excited to have you here with us. We can’t wait to learn more out what has happened since you found out a very sexy neighbor was moving in, but we know you aren’t a kiss and tell kind of reaper. Therefore we decided to delve deeper into who Charley Davidson really is and ask some interesting questions.
Hey Cat! Thanks so much for having me! I love the ‘notoriously fab’ part of your description. Nice.
Everyone has come to know you are a huge TV fan, endless hours if not days of watching TV. If you could pick just one, what action would your name be if it were a verb?
You know that dip at the bottom of the spine of a man’s back where it meets the buttocks? I would be the verb that describes the action of licking that spot.
We all want to know, have you met your Prince Charming? Does he exist?
Prince Charming might not be the right phrasing, but yes, I believe I have. He just happens to be my new neighbor, but Prince Cryptic might work better. Or Prince Dark and Enigmatic.
Describe yourself using three words.
2. Fun (in a pinch)
3. And . . . (what is the opposite of trustworthy?)
Are you spring, summer, fall, or winter? Please share why.
While fall is my favorite season, I’m probably more of a spring. Mostly because I’m springy. And I have a spring in my step, but only because my stepmother forced me to walk with a book on my head for weeks one year, trying to get me ready for a beauty contest. My spring is a direct rebellion of that horrid time. I came in 39th out of 40 due to the fact that #40 had suffered a short bout of vertigo, which resulted in great bodily harm. Still, no one could sport a neck brace in a bikini better. She deserved the title for her cojones alone.
We all know of your love of snarky and offbeat t-shirts. If you were to create a slogan for your life to place on a t-shirt, what would it be? (Example: Eat tacos, drink coffee, and be merry, for tomorrow, my may die.)
Oh, fun! A slogan for my life. I think I’ll have to go with my favorite T-shirt saying:
If you were to name one piece of clothing that describes you, what would you say?
Underwear, because it can be sexy one moment and downright filthy the next.
Just about everyone has a celebrity crush, if you could switch bodies with a certain celebrity, who would it be and why?
For years, I’ve had a thing for the body on Jensen Ackles, but I want to touch it, not wear it. If I could switch, I’d probably go with someone who has long slim legs, large bedroom eyes, and Crest white teeth: Bugs Bunny.
Everyone loves when you waltz in wearing your bugs slippers. What cartoon character best represents your personal philosophy?
You mentioned Bugs!!! I’m officially in love with you. Once again, I am going to have to go with the all-powerful Bugs. He uses his brain to outwit his enemies, his expert grasp of the double entendre to confuse and confound them, and he does it all while taunting them mercilessly. His sense of direction isn’t that great, but that turn at Albuquerque is easy to miss.
Imagine that MTV Cribs has just knocked on your door…..What will we see when they look in your refrigerator? No Cristal?
If I had advanced warning, they’d see lots of fresh salad-y stuff and lean sandwich meats. Possibly an imported beer or two. But if they just popped in, they’d probably see a few fur-covered vegetables, a dried out wedge of cheese, and an old hotdog.
Your life as a private detective has placed you in some dangerous situations. What if you were a spy, what would your alias be?
While I’d love to be Daniel Craig’s Miss Moneypenny, I think my spy name would have to be something cool and mysterious like the White Rabbit. Partly because Bugs is a rabbit and, well, I want to be Bugs. Or marry him. Either way.
Thank you for stopping over and giving us a small, fun glimpse into your life. We can’t wait for you to come back and tell us all about your new neighbor.
Thank you so much again for having me!!! I have to say, I love your spy name question. I’d love to hear what your readers think their spy names would be!

ABOUT THE BOOKCharley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth…but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason. When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help. Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay. Charley Davidson is at it again in Fifth Grave Past the Light, the sexy, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny fifth installment of the New York Times bestselling series by Darynda Jones.
