Casey Bartsch's Character, Harry Bland

MEET MY CHARACTER

1.  Who are you?
a.     What is your name?
·   Harry Bland
b.     Are you a fictional or historical character?
·   All the evidence would suggest that I am fictional, but it doesn’t feel that way.
o   What should we know about you?
·   I have been an agent for the FBI for… I forget how long. My knees are fucked, and so is my car. I just want to retire and die in peace, but they’ve got me on this bitch of a case. I don’t know, I just can’t seem to get it together.
2.  Tell us about your story:
o   When and where is your tale set?
·   America. Here and there. I go all over the place. Right now, though, I’m stuck in this shitty motel, trying to piece together a clue or two. I’ve got nothing. He’s going to kill again, and I’ve got nothin’.
o   What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
·   You may have seen on the news about this Strawberries killer. That’s what they call him, but I didn’t name him. Hell, he killed 20 people before they even put me on the case. Last guy didn’t get anywhere, and neither am I. So personal goal – catch this guy and go the fuck home.
o   What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
·   Aren’t you listening? Strawberries! The guy is just walking around ripping people apart. There is no rhyme or reason to it. He just kills. The latest got filleted and stapled to a damn wall. I mean, what am I supposed to do with that?
3.  How do I get a copy of your book?
o   What is the title or working title for this piece?
·   Strawberries
o   Is it available now or when can we expect to see it released?
·   Available right now!
