"When We Are Not Trying to Kill Each Other" - A conversation between Rex and Lara from Jill Cooper's 'Plugged'

plugged tour banner

Rex Montgomery is the chief villain in the ewind Agency Series and Lara Crane is the hero in the story. Despite their better judgement, they have agreed to interview each other in a segment we have entitled When We Are Not Trying to Kill Each Other. 

Lara The Interviewer: I gotta say, this is weird. 

Rex: Stranger is that I’m your distant uncle. And, spoiler, I tried to kill your mother. Or did kill your mother, if we’re talking alternate timelines. 

Lara: I’m the one conducting the interview, so for once, how about you just shut up? 

Rex: Is that a question? I can’t even tell. *Smirk*
Lara: You’ve aligned yourself with Patricia James, a woman who wants to use time travel for her own purposes. To get ahead. Why did you decide to do that and not go in business doing something else? Like work with your brother, Jax? 

Rex: *Laughter* Other than money you mean?
Lara: It can’t just be about money. 

Rex: Oh, yes it very well can, Lara dear. Money makes the world go around. It fans the flame inside my heart. I’m too lazy to earn it any way else. We all have our limits and our plans. I always knew greatness was right around the corner for me. Jax was happy with a normal life. That’s his problem, not mine. 

Lara: So you have money. Gobs of it. What else do you want? 

Rex: Power. Women. The basics. 

Lara: And you think this is the best way to get it? 

Rex: Yes, and it’s working so far. I do have you, don’t I? Locked in a little cage. With aflick of a few fingers, I can instill as much pain on you as I want… 

Lara: Not right now, we’re on a time out. Remember? 

Rex: *sulks* I forgot. But when I get you back in that cage… 

Lara: You can’t be just a villain. There must be something good about you. 

Rex: Things are not so black and white. I’m not a villain. I…seize opportunity. And right now, Lara, when I look into your eyes, I see dollar signs. And dollar signs make my heart do this little pitter-patter thing that I quite enjoy. 

Lara: Like I said, villain….

Plugged: A Rewind Agency Novel

Lara Crane is stuck in her mind, in an indefinite stream of timelines where her life is perfect, just the way she wants it to be. But it's not real. It's all made up to give those who want to use time travel for their own personal ambitions. To give time to finish their experiments and turn Lara into a deadly time travel assassin.

If Lara wants to survive and to stop them, she needs to risk her own mind and soul to get out of a prison so perfect it completes the one dream Lara has always had.

jillcooperAbout the Author:

I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read.

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.

If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying.
