A warm welcome to author Keelan Ellis joining us on the blog tour of their new release “Misinformation”.
Welcome Keelan 🙂
Book Title: Misinformation
Author: Keelan Ellis
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Book Length: 197 pages
Ethan Daniels, host of a popular conservative cable news program, has never thought of his bisexuality as a problem, even though he has never acted on his attraction to men. Since his divorce, his desire has become more acute. When he meets Charlie Woods, his daughter’s first grade teacher, they have an instant spark, but Ethan hesitates to act. His contract is up for renewal, there are already rumors swirling about him because of a brief encounter from his past, and the last thing his employers want is for one of their stars to come out publicly.
Charlie avoids romantic entanglements because he prefers living on his own terms. He keeps love and sex completely separate, never seeing anyone more than a few times. Hooking up with a closeted celebrity like Ethan seems safe from emotional involvement, even if they have to keep their fledgling relationship secret.
The last thing they expect is to fall in love, but their strong mutual attraction moves them both to make changes neither of them thought they wanted or needed.
I’d like to reprint an interview done with Charlie for the newspaper at the school where he works.
Fuller Academy Beacon
Interview with Mr. Woods, by Sadie Kellerman
Mr. Woods in in his sixth year of teaching first grade at Fuller. He was my first grade teacher in his first year of teaching. He was a really good teacher. He was funny and always nice to the kids. I wanted to interview him and find out a little more about him.
Sadie: Hi, Mr. Woods. How are you?
Mr. Woods: I’m doing pretty well, Sadie. I can’t believe you’re so grown up now. Is The Little Mermaid still your favorite?
Sadie: No! I’m in sixth grade now. Harry Potter is my favorite.
Mr. Woods: Oh, of course.
Sadie: Do you still like teaching first grade?
Mr. Woods: I do. In fact, I like it even more now, because I’m not so scared of the kids anymore.
Sadie: Why were you scared of us? That’s silly.
Mr. Woods: Well, I don’t know. You guys were pretty scary. What if you didn’t like me?
Sadie: But we did like you. Especially when you read us books and did all the voices.
Mr. Woods: That’s my favorite thing about teaching first grade. What was your favorite thing I read to you?
Sadie: Um…I liked Chrysanthemum, because you did all those mean kids’ voices really well.
Mr. Woods: A classic.
Sadie: So um…what do you like to do when you’re not at school?
Mr. Woods: I like to spend time with my friends.
Sadie: Like Mr. Carpenter?
Mr. Woods: Sure, he’s probably my best friend.
Sadie: Some people think he’s your boyfriend.
Mr. Woods: I know they do.
Sadie: Is he?
Mr. Woods: Nope.
Sadie: Do you have a boyfriend?
Mr. Woods: Is this interview for People Magazine?
Sadie: No! It’s for the Beacon.
Mr. Woods: Well, that’s pretty personal.
Sadie: That’s what the readers want, Mr. Woods.
Mr. Woods: Oh, fine. Yes, I have a boyfriend.
Sadie: What’s his name?
Mr. Woods: Sorry, that’s private.
Sadie: Is he cute?
Mr. Woods: What do you think?
Sadie: Probably. Are you going to marry him?
Mr. Woods: Don’t rush me, kid.
Sadie: What’s your favorite kind of ice cream?
Mr. Woods: Well, that’s an abrupt but welcome change of subject. It’s mint chocolate chip.
Mr. Woods: Sorry.
Sadie: If you couldn’t be a teacher, what would you be?
Mr. Woods: I used to want to be an actor.
Sadie: Did you grow up in New York?
Mr. Woods: No, New Jersey. No jokes! It’s not that bad.
Sadie: Okay, final question. Who’s your favorite student you ever had?
Mr. Woods: Come on. You knew I wouldn’t answer that.
Sadie: Oh, okay. Thank you for the interview, Mr. Woods.
Mr. Woods: Thank you, Sadie. Keep up the good work.
