Meet Cade, Lorylyn’s ex-husband! Even though Cade and Lorylyn’s marriage only lasted about 13 months and ended in 2005, they have remained best friends…and roommates…over the nearly 4 1/2 years between then and the start of A Stranger Thing in May 2009. Now, as Lorylyn moves to Denver, they’ll be living in different cities for the first time since they met, other than a few college summer breaks.
-What’s your name?
-How old are you?
-Where do you live?
~Irvine, Indiana, where I went to college at Irelan and am now an athletic trainer for some of their teams. It’s been a blast staying here after college with all my roommates, but now that most of them are moving on, it’ll be different. Hopefully still fun…we’ll see.
-If you were an alcoholic beverage, which one would you be and why?
~I’d just be some kind of classic beer, but not the cheapest one, and maybe not an American one either, ‘cause probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done was study abroad. Maybe Guinness. I’m a pretty simple guy, but I’d like to think I have a little bit of a refined taste.
-What’s your biggest secret?
~I mean, it’s not really a secret—at least not to my friends—but my marriage to Lorylyn. My family has no idea about it, and even Darcy, who I dated for a year after Lorylyn and I ended things, didn’t know it was serious. She thought it was just a drunken night. I guess I didn’t tell her the truth ‘cause it was easier, but the next girl I date, I’m definitely gonna tell her.
-What’s the biggest surprise we’ll see from you in A Stranger Thing (without giving too much away, of course)?
~Probably the decision I make near the end about what to do next with my life.
-What’s one thing that happens in A Stranger Thing that you would change, if you could (again, without giving too much away)?
~Maybe I would have moved to Denver when Lorylyn, Zibby, and DJ invited me.
-Thanks, Cade! Cade is also a main character in 2 previous books, where you can read all about his and Lorylyn’s friendship and marriage, as well as his relationship with Darcy. Those books are All That Sparkles Isn’t Real Sapphire and I Don’t Want the Rest of Your Life. And make sure to read the other character interviews for A Stranger Thing: Lorylyn, Kylar, Zibby, Brady, Xavier, and Taylor!
Coming tomorrow, the much-awaited interview with Lorylyn, Kylar, and Zibby’s other original roommate from freshman year…Jansen! And yes, there are many teasers in this book about her mysterious past, but no, you don’t find out the answers yet. 🙂 There is one pretty big surprise related to her past though…
