Synopsis: For Tristan Hart, everything changes with one crashing wave.
He was gone for three days. Sucked out to sea in a tidal wave and spit back ashore at Coney Island with no memory of what happened. Now his dreams are haunted by a terrifying silver mermaid with razor-sharp teeth.
His best friend Layla is convinced something is wrong. But how can he explain he can sense emotion like never before? How can he explain he’s heir to a kingdom he never knew existed? That he’s suddenly a pawn in a battle as ancient as the gods.
Something happened to him in those three days. He was claimed by the sea…and now it wants him back.
I was lucky enough to ask Tristan Hart a few questions to get to know him a little better.
Me: Tristan, Describe yourself in three words.
Tristan: Just three? Let me see. I’d go with: Athletic, but that’s obvious. I’m generous. Sometimes there’s too much love to give you, you know? I’m also caring. I’d do anything for my family and friends.
Me: I think one of the best ways to get to know someone is through their tastes in music. What’s your favorite band or song?
Tristan: My favorite song right now is Move Your Body by My Darkest Days. Really gets me pumped before a meet.
Me: So….tell us about your girlfriend. What do you like the most about her?
Tristan: Uhh, I don’t have a girlfriend right now. There’s this girl. Layla. She’s been my best friend since forever. She’s the bravest, prettiest, chillest girl I know.
Me: What’s your favorite food?
Tristan: Bacon cheese burger with all the trimmings. Also mahi-mahi tacos.
Me: If you could have any actor play you in a movie, who would it be and why?
Tristan: I’ve never thought about that. It’s a little weird thinking of someone else being me. Chris Pine is pretty cool. And by that I mean, Layla finds him “hot” or whatever. So why not?
Me: What’s your favorite thing about being a lifeguard? Why did you decide to become a lifeguard?
Tristan: My coach put me up for the job. He told me it’d keep my eye sharp, concentrating on doing something good. I’m at the beach all summer and I’d rather be at the Coney Island post than at the Y. At first I was afraid of the responsibility. I can swim fast as hell, but saving lives? That’s heavy.
Me: What’s your favorite thing to do at Coney Island?
Tristan: Bake, swim, corndogs, repeat.
Me: What kind of movies do you like? (If you have any specifics that would be awesome!)
Tristan: I like comedy and movies with big explosions and guns. Ironman, The Dark Knight, anything with Bruce Willis. The two movies I never get tired of are American Pie and Men in Black. Don’t you laugh at me. I’m being serious!
Me: Thanks so much for stopping by Tristan! I agree than Men in Black is one of the few movies that you can watch on repeat And can I just say that you sound like an awesome guy and I can’t wait to read more about you (not that there’s a book out about you or anything….:)
I have some fun swag for a lucky winner and it’s international too! You can win some stickers and a pin.
