Call Me Crazy Blog tour: Character Interview

Call Me Crazy Blog Tour

Call Me Crazyby Quinn Loftis


“I’m looking out from inside the chaos. It must be a one-way mirror because no one seems to be able to see back inside to where I am. The looks on their faces, the judgment in their eyes, tells me everything I need to know. The most frustrating part about the whole messed up situation is that even though I’m the one that they stare at in shock, I am just as shocked as they are. I know no more than they do of why I lose control. What they don’t know is that I am more scared of myself than they could ever be.” ~ Tally Baker

After a devastating turn of events, seventeen year old Tally Baker is admitted to Mercy Psychiatric Facility where she is diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. She has come to a place where she honestly believes that her life is over. Her mind tells her that she will never smile or laugh again, that she will never be normal again. It is in this unlikely place that she meets two people, different in every way, yet both critical to helping her realize that she has so much more living to do.
Candy, a cantankerous sixty year old Mercy Psychiatric patient, is hell bent on driving everyone as crazy as she is. Candy shows Tally that, regardless of her diagnosis, the ability to push on and live her life to the fullest is her choice and hers alone. In the midst of Tally’s oftentimes humorous, sometimes heart-wrenching, escapades with Candy, a new patient is admitted to Mercy—a Native American woman named Lolotea. Along with this new patient comes a daily visitor, her son, Trey Swift. At first glance, it is obvious to Tally that he is incredibly handsome and unbelievably caring. But what she learns through her second glance, and many thereafter, is that there is much more to Trey than he ever lets on. It is during these daily visits that Trey and Tally build a friendship far deeper than either of them truly realize. With Trey, Tally feels for the first time since being admitted that someone is looking at her as a person and not as a disease. Trey begins to make it clear that he wants more than friendship, but she knows that she can never give him more. How can she, when she won’t even give him the truth?  Tally doesn’t tell Trey that she is a patient at Mercy, and she doesn’t ever plan to. Her plans go up in flames when she finds out that Trey is a new student at her school, the school where her brokenness was found out in the floor of the girl’s bathroom in a pool of her own blood.
Interview with Trey and Tally from Call Me Crazy

Trey and Tally kindly agreed to do a short interview for us allowing us to get a glimpse into their relationship and the trials they face as a couple.
Tally and Trey are sitting here with me. They are on the couch across from me, Tally’s legs are crossed and Trey has slipped his right hand just between where her knees connect. Talley’s hand lay’s across his forearm and she is leaning against his shoulder. They both appear relaxed and totally at ease with one another.  

Quinn: Tally what is one quality in Trey that you feel compliments you best?

Tally: I tend to be a little unpredictable, that just comes with the territory of Bipolar disorder and Trey is the opposite. Trey is steady. When I’m feeling out of control he is in total control. When I am convinced that life is over, he is there reminding me that what I’m feeling is not necessarily true. He’s constant and that’s what I need.

Quinn: Trey, was Jen anything like who you imagined you would fall in love with?

Trey: I wish I could say that I could even think up someone as genuine as Tally, but honestly she has been the most inspiring thing to happen in my life.

Quinn: Tally, what is your biggest fear when it comes to your relationship with Trey?
Tally:  I think my biggest fear is that I will put unrealistic expectations on him and then when he doesn’t live up to them, it will be devastating. I know that with Bipolar disorder it’s easy to blow things way out of proportion, and I worry that I will do that. I don’t worry so much that he will leave me, I worry more that I will ruin any chance we have. *Trey reaches over and holds Tally’s hand, then leans over and whispers something in her ear*

Quinn: Okay, Trey last question, where do you see your relationship in 5 years?
Trey: If I have my way Tally will be wearing a band around her finger that tells the world she is mine for life. *Tally blushes* but if she isn’t ready by then, I will be waiting, and I will be with her every step of the way until she decides she’s ready to take that step.

Quinn: I want to thank you guys for your time, I know I kept it brief but I know you have a lot on your plates. I along with all your fans wish you the best as your move forward in your journey. Thank you for your time.
