Meet Reba...an intriguing character from SB Knight's novel Born of Blood


The following is a character interview from SB Knight’s debut novel Born of Blood. Today we get to know Reba, one of the many interesting and complex characters from the novel.
1. Welcome Reba. Please tell us a little about yourself.
    I consider myself a free spirit. Unfortunately for me I have a problem keeping a job. Come to think about it that ended up getting me into a lot of trouble. I can tell you that my life has experienced many ups and downs, twist and turns but nothing compares to the time I served that jerk a drink. Funny how that led to me meeting Charles. 

    2. In Born of Blood you find yourself in a very difficult ordeal but seem to handle it well. What do you attribute that to?
      HA! Are you kidding me? I was scared to death. But you know, my mommy always told me if you got lemons make lemonade. But I can tell you this, I like to think I made things interesting for that jerk who tried to toy with me.
      3. You spent some time Jesse. What was your impression of her?
        Jesse is perhaps the strongest person I have ever had the privilege to meet. Meeting her was intense to say the least but in that time I saw so much of what I wish I could be. She is nothing short of a hero in my book.
        4. Charles is an interesting individual. Can you tell us about him?
          Charles is a special person. From our first meeting to now he will always be an inspiration to me. Don’t get me wrong, he was very intimidating the first time I ran into him but he saved me. The more time I spent with him the more I learned that there was a lot hidden behind all that tough exterior. 
          5. Can you tell us about your friendship with Sam? 
            Sam…what can be said about Sam? We share a lot but only recently learned that we have a lot in common. It is a….great friendship born out of dark, desperate times. I owe a great deal to Sam but I don’t know if he truly knows that.
            Thank you, Reba for that rather interesting interview. Next we will take a look at a book excerpt.


            The room was shrouded in silence; the only movement was Charles’ hand and the rise and fall of their chests. Warmth spread through his body—not the heat of passion but a sensation that radiated from his chest. Reba held him tight. Charles returned her embrace as he smoothed her red hair. He sucked in her scent.
            She smells so good.
            Reba pushed away from him and sat up. Her velvet-blue eyes ensnared his. His heartbeat hung on her next word, her next movement. She grabbed the sides of his head and kissed him. His hard, stiff lips became soft and supple as her passion penetrated the emotional barriers he had constructed long ago.
            They parted from their enraptured moment and inhaled, her hands drifting down his chest, unbuttoning his shirt. When she slid it over his broad shoulders, she gasped. With two fingers she traced the multiple scars crisscrossing his chest.
            “How did you get these, Charles?”
            He moved her hand away and ran a finger down her cheek.
            “They’re a part of my past that is better kept there.”
            Reba placed her hand over his and rested her cheek in his palm for a moment before pulling her shirt over her head. The strawberry-red bra that peeked through matched her hair…
