Today I’d like to welcome Clay Dabrowski to Creekside Café. Clay is the hero of Tyler Wittkofsky’s new novel, The Seeds of Love (Sunflower Kisses Book 1). It’s great to have you, Clay. I have to say, I like the car you arrived in.
Clay: Thanks for having me. I love my Challenger. Whenever I need to unwind, I crank up the radio and cruise down the highway. It helps me clear my head.
Sherri: I know the feeling, windows down, radio up, country roads. I doubt we listen to the same music, I’m old school classic rock. Who do you listen to?
Clay: I’m more into alternative rock, I love Twenty-One Pilots.
Sherri: I just checked them out. They are pretty good. What’s your favorite song?
Clay: Shy Away
Sherri: Oh, that’s the one I listened to, great song.
You just graduated from college, where did you go to school?
Clay: Yes, I graduated from Coastal Carolina with a degree in communications. I managed to finish in three years, but I sacrificed a lot.
Sherri: Like what?
Clay: Mostly my social life, my ex-girl friend didn’t like me being so focused on my education.
Sherri: Is that why you broke up?
Clay: We should have broken up a long time ago, I guess I was just hanging on because I didn’t think anyone would love me for who I am. I’m not easy to love at least, that’s what she said.
Sherri: You seem like a nice young man. I cannot imagine why you couldn’t find a nice person to love you.
Clay: I’m bipolar. I’ve always been ashamed of my diagnosis. It’s taken me a long time to come to terms with it and realize I worthy of real love, not that fake stuff my ex called love.
Sherri: Clay, we all have challenges to overcome and few adults I know don’t have a little baggage. You’re young, handsome, hardworking, you deserve a forever kind of love.
Clay: Well, thanks, I’m trying to treat myself the way I treat others. I’ve always been so down on myself. I’m my own nemesis.
Sherri: You’re a college graduate and you’re employed. For a new graduate that’s not always the case.
Clay: Yeah, I know. I work at The Door, a great restaurant in Myrtle Beach but I’m hoping to get a job in communications so I can use my degree.
Sherri: I wish you luck. Clay, it has been so nice to meet you. Now how about a ride in that awesome car?
Clay: Yes ma’am, think you can stand my music?
Sherri: Bring it on!
