Q: Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story? Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
A: I most definitely have times when the characters hijack the story. I have heard other authors say this over the years and I wondered how that could be? Then it happened to me. Sometimes I think I know who the next book in the series will be about and then another character starts “talking” to me and takes over the whole order.
Probably the best example of a character taking over in these first four books is Ms. Marie in book 4, Menace’s Siren. She was introduced only in a very brief encounter in book 3. Just a little quirky older woman. But when I decided to write book 4, the main female character ended up becoming her granddaughter, Alannah. Well, Ms. Marie took on a life of her own! She became a fun character to write. She’s quirky, a little naughty (none of the single guys are off limits to her flirting or pats on the behind), but also, she’s got grit and doesn’t back down. She’s the one who raised Alannah and formed her underlying strength.
You’ll find book 4 was dedicated to my grandmother, Viola. Marie’s warmth, loving nature, and supportive character were influenced by my grandmother. That’s why I’m releasing the book on August 18th. That’s her birthday! However, I won’t say how old she is turning, because she’d kill me…lol
If you’re a reader looking for characters like Ms. Marie and books filled with suspense, danger, love, steamy sex, love of family, and true strength in your romance books, then my series is for you! This club might have gotten away from the one percenter life in order to survive, but they are never afraid to take things to the limit in order to protect themselves and others who need protecting, especially women and children. Every guy didn’t know he was looking for “the one” until she appears. When it happens, he does everything in his power to make her his. And God help anyone who gets in the way or threatens her or his MC family.
