We at RWoWA are on fire with character interviews this month. So many wonderful characters to meet, so little time. Today we’re talking to heroine Chantelle Ohemaa Sah from Empi Baryeh’s Most Eligible Bachelor.
RWoWA: Welcome Chantelle. Since my lovey readers can’t see you can you please describe your looks (include colour of hair & eyes) and personality.
Chantelle: Five-feet and eight inches of awesome. *giggles* I don’t know how my husband gets away with saying things like that with a straight face. Clearly, that hasn’t rubbed off on me yet.
Sorry, I’m not used to being on this side of the camera—so to speak.*composes self*
I’m quite ordinary, really. Black hair, brown eyes… I’ve been told I can be a little intense, but I think I’m just focused and passionate about things I care about, like my work and my family. Speaking of family, I’m married with two beautiful kids. I’m ɔwonta—mother of twins. *smiles*.
RWoWA: Congratulations. You look so young that my curiosity is getting the best of me. How old are you today?
Chantelle: Come on, you know a lady never tells her age.
RWoWA:Had to try. What do you do for a living? Are you religious?
I’m a reporter for Ͻdɔpa Magazine. (pauses) Am I religious? Yes, I am. I believe there’s a greater being out there that we need to give reverence to for thinking up and creating *waves arms* all this.
RWOWA: Are you athletic? What do you do for leisure?
Chantelle: I’m afraid, I’m not very athletic. I’d rather sit at my computer and compose my next article than hit the gym, but luckily, I do like walking so that’s how I keep up with my incredibly athletic husband.
RWoWA:Have you ever cheated on your lover?
Chantelle: No, I haven’t. *a few seconds elapse*
This isn’t something I talk about, but I’ve been cheated on before, by a guy I was going to marry, and I never knew until after he died. Cheating is one of the cruellest, most disrespectful things someone can do to another. You don’t toy with a person’s heart. It’s simple; if you fall out of love with someone, you need to tell them so both of you can move on.
RWoWA: Do you prefer showers or baths? Share any fond memories.
Chantelle: I’d have to say showers.
There was this time I and Lord—that’s my husband, Lord McKenzie. We weren’t married then. We’d just started dating and…let’s just say, we had a misunderstanding about a condom. Luckily, he was able to convince a very strong-headed me to give him another chance. It was really sweet, but that’s all Empi is going to allow me to say. Don’t want to give away any spoilers. The long and short of it is, he won me over for good, we made up and there was a shower involved. *winks*
RWoWA: If you could only have one drink, what will it be?
Chantelle: That’s easy. Amarula all the way! I must add that it goes nicely with banku, hot pepper and tilapia.
Thank you for being with us today, Chantelle. I hope our readers take the opportunity to learn more about you by purchasing Most Eligible Bachelor.
Magazine columnist Chantelle Sah doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day—not since her fiancé’s betrayal three years ago. After botching her first assignment as a feature writer, she’s more than willing to put in a hard day’s work this Valentine’s Day; even if it means going on a date with gorgeous construction Tycoon, Lord McKenzie, and opening herself to an onslaught of all things love.
When Lord—his given name, not a title—sets his sights on Chantelle, it isn’t just work he has on his mind. But even he couldn’t have predicted the magnetic attraction between them when they meet, nor the evening ending with more than an interview. Now he has to convince Chantelle that their one-night stand wasn’t a mistake. Can he win her love without revealing a secret from their night of passion, which could prove fatal for both their hearts?
Empi Baryeh has been writing since the age of thirteen after stumbling upon a YA story her older sister had started. The story fascinated her so much that, when she discovered it was unfinished, she knew the task of completing it rested firmly on her shoulders, and somehow the ideas and the words for the rest of the story began to pour into her mind. She’s been writing ever since. It wasn’t until another thirteen years later, however, that the romantic in her geared her toward romance. She now focuses on heart-warming multicultural romance with enough passion to enthral readers who want a little sizzle with their romance.
When she isn’t writing, she’s plotting a new story in her head, reading, browsing or watching one of her favourite TV shows. She currently lives in Accra with her husband.
