Interview with Daisy Chessington {Tunes of My Heart Launch Tour}

Today (for once!) I’m not talking about something I’m doing. Rebekah from Stuffie Adventures has a brand-new personal blog that I’m shamelessly promoting! Tunes of My Heart is the new place to find her writing, photography, music and life. I’m really proud of her for embarking on this new journey and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

Now, I intended to write up a really cool narrative version of this. I wanted to have crossovers and awesomeness….but I ran out of time. So unfortunately, you’ll have to deal with a run-of-the-mill character interview, though not of a run-of-the-mill character!

Put your hands together as we welcome to the stage…

Daisy Chessington!

{Protagonist of Rebekah’s novel The Traitor In The Pages}

I’m so delighted to give Daisy an interview – let’s get right into it!

What would you say is your biggest achievement in life?
Hmm, cool question! I haven’t done that much in life yet, actually. I’m only twelve, after all (or as Mother would say “you’re already twelve!”) But people do tell me that I’m pretty talented at horseback riding – with Dusty, my trusty dappled horse. I remember winning a riding competition where you have to perform tricks with your horse, and apparently the judges liked all the daring stunts I did with Dusty. Because I came out first, which is really a pretty decent achievement considering that there were competitors up to the age of 18 and it was one of the more competitive contests!

Have you ever been in love?
Nah. Once a boy took a fancy to my curls, but he was annoying and I didn’t like him – and soon he got so tired of my sarcasm that he was like “Forget it.”

What’s your all-time favorite song?
We actually don’t listen to much music up here in medieval Ireland. The only music we do listen to is all those boring ballroom waltzes during dances…which, of course, I don’t like at all. I’d rather have something peppy and upbeat!

Do you live by any quotes?
Yup! I live by this one: “You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong.” – Sue Fitzmaurice

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change?
Ughhh, I wish I could be more prim and proper like my super annoying older sister Cora. It would make life so much easier for me. I’m supposed to be all “kind and good-mannered” and “ladylike and proper” and “good representation of Duke Chessington (my father).” Instead, I’m super tomboyish and daring, which is really not what a duke’s daughter should be.

What’s your favorite holiday?
Christmas, definitely! I love the magic of the season: the snow, the holly berries, the gift giving, the candlelight, the glorious carols and hymns…and the candy and nuts!

Describe yourself in ten words or less.
Adventurous, brave, sassy, fearless, sarcastic, saucy, tomboyish, friendly, determined fighter.

What do you do when you’re alone?
Alone? That’s bor-ing! I’d rather be with Karah (my lady’s maid and best friend, and the other protagonist in the book that Rebekah and Julia are co-writing!) But when I absolutely have to be alone, I’ll usually just stay in my bedroom (it’s rather big, actually, and contains nearly all my stuff) and write in my journal, sketch something, or play with my dolls. I have a really nice wooden dollhouse by my bed with about eight or nine rooms in it, and several dolls, most of which were gifts from Father when he came home from all his important business trips. My favorite is one with dazzling golden curls and blue eyes just like mine! But anyways, I like entertaining myself by making stories with them (and usually I’ll end up writing the stories in my journal, too, which is fun).

If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
Well, Daisy is actually my nickname. My real name is Lusitania, and I absolutely h a t e it because of how fancy it sounds. Some people call me that even though I tell them it’s just Daisy, so I wish I could change my real name to Daisy so that they wouldn’t have an excuse to call me Lusitania anymore. 😀

What’s your most favorite place on earth?
This is in the book – my best friend Karah Vedier’s house. You would think I’m kidding. I’m the daughter of one of the most powerful dukes in Ireland; I live in a manor sprawling acres and acres with several rooms all to myself and all the luxurious extravagance any twelve-year-old girl could wish for, and yet…honestly, I would rather be in Karah’s home. It’s a wee little cottage half the size of my bedroom, and truly it’s the most rundown and dilapidated place I’ve ever seen, but there’s something there that can’t be felt when I’m back at the manor. Maybe the manor is just too big and fancy for me, I guess. But Karah and her father and mother and her four little siblings just seem to be so happy. Despite how poor they are and how they don’t even know where their next meal is coming from. And for whatever reason, every time I get to go there (I got to go to her little sister Rebekah’s birthday party, guys, you can read about that when the book is released for beta reading), I’m strangely infected with their happiness as well!

Daisy is such an intriguing character! She’s not all that Rebekah has to offer, though.

Sayonara for now,
