Please Welcome Luis Rodriguez
I'm thrilled to have Luis Rodriguez joining us today. Luis is the hero of Vivi Andrews' new book, THE SEXORCIST.
*leans in and whispers* He seems to be a little impatient so I'm going to get right to it.
Welcome to the blog, Mr. Rodriguez. How are you?
I’m ready to do this. Let’s skip the pleasantries and get down to business.
*clears throat* Alrighty then. What have you been up to lately?
The usual. Exorcising demons, dodging propositions. Same old, same old.
I hear that the author Vivi Andrews wrote a book featuring you and Brittany Hylton-VanDeere. Have you read it yet? If so, how accurate was it?
You mean that massive invasion of our privacy, The Sexorcist? Yeah. I’ve read it. And accurate? Please. I didn’t think Brittany was an addled twit when we first met. Not even when she rear-ended my car. I never really believed she was nuts or trying to use me or any of that other crap. It all got blown out of proportion. Artistic license.
Some people might be bothered to have their life shared with the world, how do you feel about your story being told?
How would you feel if the entire world held up a magnifying glass to your sex life? Exhibitionism has never really been my thing.
I can see where that might be a little bothersome. Can you tell us more about yourself?
My family emigrated here from Michoacan – legally. I grew up Catholic and even entered the seminary to become a priest, but the celibacy thing didn’t really stick. So I became an exorcist and started working for Karmic Consultants instead. All the righteous demon-banishing, none of the needy parishioners. Though my boss still has a god complex.
Can you tell us a bit more about Karmic Consultants?
If you’ve got a paranormal disaster, Karmic Consultants has your solution. For demon exorcism, I’m your man, but we also handle ghost infestations, curses, and psychic location of lost items. No problem too weird for KC.
Wow, that sounds fascinating. What about Brittany…can you tell us about her?
Brittany… she’s special. Unique. She sees the good in everything and makes the world around her better just by believing it will be. And she’s hot as hell. Es increible.
Can you describe yourself in three words?
Is this one of those touchy feely self-help things? Fine, I’ll play along. I’m all about family, integrity and faith. Now you wanna analyze me?
Ummm...No, I don't think so. What three words would you use to describe Brittany?
Brave, optimistic, and…heart. Brittany’s all heart.
What do you like to do for fun?
Anything with Brittany. No, Madre de Dios, I sound like a sap. Delete that. Real answer - Salsa dancing, watching Elvis movies, riding my motorcycle–Brittany makes this noise when she’s hanging on the back… ay, me encanta.
Well, Luis, thanks for being here. I know you are busy, but before you leave, do you have anything you'd like to ask my blog readers?
Since the book about Brittany and I, The Sexorcist, shows all the messed-up stuff that demon put us through at Lucy’s wedding, I want to know what’s the craziest thing that’s ever gone wrong at a wedding you’ve been to.
Oh boy. I can already imagine some of the answers your going to get to that question.

Thanks, again, Luis for joining us and I can't wait to hear some of the responses!
Everyone, have a fabulous Mother's Day weekend!!
Peace and love,
