Biography

Lisey's Story (2021 Miniseries)

Roger Dashmiel confronts Lisey Landon and tells her that she needs to give him Scott Landon’s papers so they can be reviewed. He tells her that just because she shared Scott’s bed doesn’t give her the right to withhold his papers. Lisey says no and crashes into his car before speeding off.

Dashmiel calls Jim Dooley later on to request his help in obtaining the papers. Dooley claims that “Professor Dashmiel knows more about Scott Landon than everyone on earth”.

Lisey confronts Dashmiel about Jim Dooley and his threats and Dashmiel insists he told Jim “no violence”. He seems disappointed in Jim and calls him to ask him about it but Jim’s phone is disconnected. Dashmiel recalls the first time he and Jim met- at a bar to talk about Scott Landon after Dashmiel saw Jim’s comments on a fansite and wanted a few quotes for his book.

Quotes

"You were nothing but a restaurant hostess when you caught his eye. The fact that you slept in his bed does not give you the right to withhold his unwritten papers from the rest of the world."
―Professor Dashmiel in Blood Hunt
